What bankruptcy can you file to keep your home if you are behind in payments?

If you are behind in your payments and you declare bankruptcy usually you can remain in your home and continue payments. However the lender will most likely begin foreclosure since you can't afford it and you are at higher risk.


Will a bank repossess a car from co signer if primary goes bankrupt?

Only if the primary has said s/he will surrender the property in the bankruptcy and/or if the cosigner does not make the payments due.


Is the cosigner the only one responsible on the loan?

The primary borrower is responsible for making the payments and adhering to the terms of the lending contract. The cosigner is legally obligated only if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement or files bankruptcy (chapter 7).


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.


If an account is closed by a credit grantor why would the card holder continue to make payments after bankruptcy findings are closed?

The card holder is under no legal obligation for the card holder to continue making payments after filing for bankruptcy, unless the case is dismissed without a discharge. There are some who believe that they can improve their credit rating by pay off debts that were discharged in a bankruptcy, but I believe there are better methods to reestablish credit after bankruptcy.


What are the benefits of a cosigner?

A cosigner basically is a guarantor for the repayment of a loan or value and serves as cosigner of the debt. If the debtor fails to make payments or defaults, the cosigner is obligated to pay off the debt. No benefits for the cosigner, but cosigner benefits the debtor.


If you file for bankruptcy and have cosigned a loan will that loan be affected?

Yes, it could be. You could reaffirm that particular debt, which means you don't wish to include it in your bankruptcy and that you will continue to make your normal payments.


Can the cosigner sell the home if payments are not being made?

Absolutely not!


Can your cosigner take your car if you have been making payments on time?

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.


Can the cosigner sell the house if his name is not on the deed and the primary borrower has missed 3 payments?

No. If you are not on the deed, you can't sell the property. The only "right" you have as a cosigner is the obligation to make the payments.


Can a cosigner take possession of a car if the primary signer is not paying the payments?

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.


If you filed for bankruptcy would the cosigner of your auto loan be forced to take over payment?

The answer is that the cosigner would be left responsible for taking over the payments. If the cosigner wants to maintain his or her credit rating (which is probably damaged due to your filing bankruptcy), If the consignor does not want the auto loan people to sue for any remaining balance, then he or she will need to keep making the payments. If the auto loan company sues for any remaining balance and gets a judgment, then the auto loan company will go after the assets of the consignor and or garish their earnings. attempt o seize their assets or garnish their earnings.
