In California State what are the legal rights of ownership for a vehicle between a primary buyer and a co buyer when the primary buyer becomes delinquent on a payment?

Unknown what is meant by the term "co-buyer." Are you referring to a "co-signer" of the loan? In such a transaction the only entity that actually OWNS the car is the lender. The borrower is allowed to POSSESS the car only so long as the financial obligation to the lender is met and current. If the buyer stops paying, the lender will turn to the co-signer for the money, but just because the principal buyer stops paying doesn't automatically mean that the possession of the vehicle passes to the co-signer. Whatever interest the co-signer has in the car is a matter of agreement between him and the buyer of the car. The co-signer does not necessarily have any legal rights to the car at all. The lender doesn't care who actually HAS the car in their possession just so long as they are paid the money that is due them.

What is co buyer?

Are you liable to another PARTY if your daughter gets into a car wreck if you co signed on her car loan and she in uninsured?

If you are truly a Co-Signor then you would not be liable for the accident although you would still be liable to the finance company for unpaid balance of the financed vehicle. If you are in fact a Co-Buyer, then yes, as one of the vehicle owners your are jointly and severally liable financially for any accident incurred in the vehicle. Unfortunately their are many unscrupulous car dealers these days that do not explain the difference to the customer between a Co-Signor and a Co-Buyer. If your name appears on the title or the vehicle registration to the vehicle then you are not a Co-Signor, you are a Co-Buyer aka a Co-Owner.

How many names can be on a vehicle title?

Two. The primary and the co buyer.

Is the co-signer and co-buyer the same thing on a bank application?

Co-buyer = Name is on the title and has rights to the property. The lender will PROBABLY insist that this person also sign the loan as a co-signer or joint borrower. Co-signer = Name is on the loan and is obligated to make the payments if the primary borrower does not. This gives you NO rights to the property.

It depends on whose name or names are on the title. A co-signer of a loan isn't necessarily an owner. Their name must be on the title to the property also. The person or persons who are listed on the title have ownership rights in the property.

Is it legal for a co-signer to reposses the vehicle that is financed through a bank?

I don't think so. The co-signer is not the registered owner and has no claim to the vehicle. Only the bank or the loan company (which lends the buyer the money and holds the vehicle title until it's paid for) can repossess. The co-signer just guarantees the loan. If the buyer defaults, the bank will come after him to make payments.

Is a co-buyer responsible for paying off a loan if the buyer has no job and the vehicle was repossessed?

Yes, he or she would be equally responsible for the repayment of the loan balance.

Can a co-signer take the vehicle away from the primary buyer even if they have not missed a payment?

Of course not. The car belongs to the person listed on the title and to the lender who holds lien rights, and not to you. You own nothing here. The only interest you have in this vehicle is that you have guaranteed to pay the loan if the primary owner does not. They are making payments, so what is your problem? You have no rights to the vehicle at all. If you were to take the vehicle without the consent of the owner, you can be charged with theft of a vehicle. As long as the payments are being made on time you have no need to do anything.

Can a car be repossessed if a primary buyer files bankruptcy and the co-buyer has possession of the car but falls behind on payments and the court rules that the vehicle belongs to the lendor?

If a co-buyer is on the contract and is making the payments does the co-buyer receive the credit points or does the buyer?
