The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.

The cosigner's credit isn't affected one ioto unless the person who was responsible for the loan payments defaulted, then and if the cosigner also defaulted. In other words, just being a cosigner does not affect ones credit ratings.


How can you be a cosigner if the title is in the name of the person you cosigned for?

Many people cosign a loan for property they don't own. Many are uninformed of the consequences of cosigning. They don't realize they are agreeing to be completely responsible for a loan for property that belongs to someone else. If the primary borrower defaults on the loan and the cosigner must make the payments, the cosigner has no automatic right to the property.

If a person co-signed for another's car will the co-signer be taken if they file for bankruptcy?

Yes! The whole point of cosigning a loan, from the lender's perspective, is that they have 2 people on the hook for the loan in the event it goes sour. If the person stops making payments (bankruptcy or not), they will come after the cosigner, making the cosigner wish he/she had never, ever cosigned.

Sadly, no. Cosigning essentially affords no rights, only obligations.


Do you have the right to sell a car after repossession on a cosigned loan?

Yes, but only if you are the cosigner. When you cosign it is usually for these reasons: The person the loan is for is a minor The person has a poor credit rating The person doesn't have collateral When you cosign you are 100% responsible for that debt. All the banking institution is interested in is getting their money, so if the car was repossessed the cosigner has two options ... take over the payments or sell the car and hope it pays off the total loan. It's a smart thing to do so it doesn't ruin one's credit rating. If you aren't the cosigner, but the person the loan went too, shame on you! If you can afford to continue to make payments now, then you could have made those payments on the loan cosigned by someone who was nice enough to do it.

Can a lien be put on my property if im a senior citizen without going to court 1st for cosigned car?

Unfortunately if you cosigned a loan that means you were willing to pay the loan if the other signer defaults and if that happen they will go by any means to collect that money that you "cosigned/said" you would cover if the other person defaults. I would go after that person that you cosigned for if it has gone this far.

Can a co signer sue the person who defaulted on the loan for the amount of the loan in question since the car was reposessed and that person is working and more than capable of making the payments?

Not likely. If you cosign then you are saying "I trust my credit in this person's hands." If the signer does not pay then it is the responsibility of the cosigner to take care of the payments.


If you are a cosigner for a car and own a car do you loose both cars?

The biggest threat to you losing both cars is if you used your car as collateral, and the person for whom you cosigned defaults on the loan, and you can't make the payments on the other person's car yourself. But, even if you didn't use your car as collateral, then the bank/finance company could still file a judgment against you for the remaining balance that was owed on the car you cosigned for.
