Yes, you can switch the cosigner to the primary on a loan. The way to do this is to have the loan refinanced.

You can sue anybody for almost anything today. Now, if you can win or not is the question. Talk to a lawyer or at the very least your state attorney general.

A cosigner is responsible for anything the primary party does not pay.

No. The purpose of requiring a co-signer is that in the case of a default by the primary borrower, the cosigner has agreed to be fully responsible for the loan. Therefore, if the borrower defaults, that's what you're there for if you're the cosigner.

Whether a repossession is done "voluntarily" by the primary or through the action of the lender, the primary borrower and the cosigner are still legally responsible for all the terms of the lending agreement. The affect the repossession has on the cosigner's credit history will depend upon the actions of the lender to recover the debt owed.

YES !!! He/she should certainly discuss it with the cosigner. It may be a gift or it may just be that the cosigner doesn't want to have that note appearing on his/her credit report. Whatever the reason, even if the cosigner did it as a gift, the primary should acknowledge and express appreciation. But be prepared if the cosigner expects the loan to be paid back.

Yes. That is the point of the lender asking for a cosigner. The cosigner will have a repossession showing on their credit as well as the primary lender.

The cosigner issue here is misplaced. The liability of a cosigner comes into play if the primary owner of the car cannot make payments. In the case presented, the primary borrower is doing fine. There is nothing a cosigner can do to take a car away.

Not unless the the cosigner is on the vehicle title. If not on the title the only entitlement the cosigner has is to pay the bill.

The cosigner has the same legal obligations to repay the debt as does the primary borrower. If the primary borrower defaults, the lender can begin proceedings to collect the full amount owed plus applicable fees from the cosigner. A cosigner can be sued just as can the primary borrower. And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.

Yes. But for now the lender has you and will get their money from you as they would the primary borrower. Cosigning is a really, really bad idea. At least for the cosigner. Everyone else seems to benefit.

An auto cosigner, in the state of Indiana, has to meet all of the requirements of the contract. In most cases the cosigner has the same obligations as the primary signer.

A cosigner or coowner cannot repossess a vehicle. That is something the leinholder does.

User Avatar

The title has nothing to do with the loan. The loan will need to be refinanced using a different cosigner or only the primary borrowers.

User Avatar

A cosigner can only sue if the primary borrower signed an agreement for the cosigner to pay the debt and then be reimbursed. The consignor can not sue if they, at their own liberty, decided to just pay the debt.

User Avatar

untill its paid off * The other option is for the primary borrower to have the loan refinanced without the participation of the original cosigner.

User Avatar

Seems pointless to even consider. If the primary signer didn't have enough funds to make the car payments, they probably will not have enough funds to pay any lawsuit you charge them with. Fact is, if the primary signer defaulted on payments, then the cosigner would be responsible for making them - If repossession occured, then it was due to the fault of the cosigner .. can't sue yourself.

A cosigner is needed when the primary borrower does not, for whatever reason, (age, income, credit rating, etc.) does not qualify for a loan on their own merit.

User Avatar

No, but if the borrower misses enough payments, the cosigner will start getting collection calls as well.

A cosigner is the person who agrees to pay off the full balance of the loan if the primary borrower fails to pay. A cosigner signs the loan documents and guarantees payment of the loan even if they have no ownership in the property covered by the loan.
