The creditor doesn't pay any attention to where the money is coming from, just that the money is coming in. So in other words, no. As long as the payments are on time, the report will be good.

A cosigner must have good credit, a reliable income and the willingness to sign for another individual. Cosigners help primary borrowers build a good credit history, along with on-time payments.

from what i know when you sign on a cosigner you hand your item to them so if you make good payments it builds their credit if you fail to make payments it hurts their credit but it is a good way to start.

No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back. If the primary borrower isn't paying then the cosigner must pay or their own credit record will be ruined and the lender can go after them for payment.No. The cosigner should make certain the loan payments are being made since they guaranteed the loan would be paid back.

When the primary borrower defaults the cosigner becomes legally responsible for the loan. If the cosigner is not able to pay the loan he or she can also be subject to legal action by the lender and the cosigner's credit score will be seriously affected.

not if you make your payments like you should a cosigner is only called upon if you default on your loan

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.

yes it will, as a co-signer you are held just as responsible as the primary loan holder and it will appear on your credit report no matter if the payments are made on time or if they are late.

The credit of the primary borrower(s) and the cosigner(s) are equally affected (positively or negatively) and both are subject to the credit history check and evaluation.

The other signer must make the payments or the loan will go into default, the property will be taken and your credit will be ruined.

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.

The cosigner is responsible for the loan and payments if the signer does not pay or keep up the payments. Your credit rating can be affected.

Yes, having a cosigner on a loan or line of credit/ credit card can help your credit. It can help because, assuming they have good credit, you are more likely to get approved, which gives you a chance to build your credit. The danger is if the cosigner where to default on payments or abuse the account (such as using a credit card you both are signers on to rack up a lot of debt). So if you pick your cosigner carefully it can help you- but remember what you do on the account effects their credit, so make sure you are also responsible with the account.

GET the car(if you want it), make arrangements with LENDER to do what they will expect you to do anyway....NO DONT pay for it and YES it will be bad

The co-signer is fully responsible for paying the loan and, therefore, they should take over the payments immediately to prevent damage to their own credit record.Cosigners should make certain they know what their obligations are before they sign. A person who has poor credit or no credit record needs a cosigner when they borrow money. A cosigner is a person who accepts the responsibility of repayment of a loan along with the primary borrower. The lender requires a cosigner to increase the chances that it will be repaid. The cosigner is sometimes referred to as the guarantor because they guarantee the full repayment of the loan in the event the borrower defaults. The cosigned loan will appear as a debt on the cosigners credit record.The co-signer is fully responsible for paying the loan and, therefore, they should take over the payments immediately to prevent damage to their own credit record.Cosigners should make certain they know what their obligations are before they sign.

Two things to consider here: First, the cosigner is an equal owner of the vehicle regardless of whether or not any payment has been made by him. This is a matter of contract law. Second, and typically in cases where payments are not current, the cosigner/co-owner can take possession of the vehicle to protect his credit if his intention is to surrender the unit or to make payments current.

Possibly. However, the cosigner needs to understand all the implications should the one needing the cosign on the load default on payments. If the primary borrower doesn't pay the co-signer will be held personally responsible for paying the loan in full. That's what they agree to when they sign as co-signer.

The credit rating of both the primary borrower and the cosigner are in jeopardy. Talk to the creditor immediately about options. Consider a debt counseling non-profit agency who may be able to help. Consider other sources...family? Selling an asset? A second job?

Generally speaking no. Cosigners are needed for a purpose, and most often it is because the primary debtors has bad credit.

A cosigner is only needed because the primary doesn't have adequate credit rating/history for the needed loan. Hence, the cosigner needs to have credit good enough to qualify for the loan, presumably good, at least betterr than the primary! (Credit scores are not combined or added to get to the needed level). Understand, being a cosigner is essentially the exact same as getting a loan - the cosigner is just as liable as if he got the loan on his own..in fact needs to be more responsible, because he now has to take on the obligations of the primary too, if needed, likely without the control/posession/benefit of what was purchased.

As a person who co-signed an auto loan for someone who consistently made late payments, accrued late fees, and eventually filed bankruptcy . . . I can truly tell you that if You co-sign an auto loan and the person doesn't make the payments it can really screw your credit up. However, if that person is making the payments timely without any problems - then I'd say it won't necessarily hurt your credit. But at the same time it won't necessarily help it either. If I were you I wouldn't do it. Believe me if I could go back - I wouldn't do it. A cosigner is only needed because the primary doesn't have adequate credit rating/history for the needed loan.

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.

The LENDER will have to remove any co-signor from the loan. Your only option is to have your daughter refinance the loan in her name only. She might be able to do this, given enough positive credit history on the existing loan and proof that it was her making the payments on time.

The co-signer will be completely responsible for paying the loan if the primary borrower defaults on the payments even though the co-signer will have no ownership interest in the vehicle. A co-signer should always be completely informed about the consequences of co-signing. They are guaranteeing that you will pay. If you miss payments it will affect their credit record. If you default it will also wreck their credit. In short, co-signers are responsible in making sure that the primary borrower is able to make the payments on time, and if not, will be their responsibility to continue and settle the payments if the primary borrower fail to do so.

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.

Yes, a person with bad credit can get a cosigner for a mortgage. The cosigner will have to have excellent credit and must go into the office to sign papers to become a cosigner.
