NO. IF the co-signor is also listed on the TITLE as co-owner, they can take possession. If not listed on the title they would need to bring a civil suit and bring enough evidence to convince the court to render a judgment transferring the title to the co-signer. Crucial evidence would be proof the co-singer paid the loan.
You will also be liable for any deficiency balance
Yes. If you signed the loan, you are still legally responsible for it.
When you cosign for anyone you are taking 100% responsibility for the payments on that car. If the person that gets the car doesn't keep their payments up it will be repossessed by the bank with an option for the cosigner to take over payments or sell the car and pay back the loan. Marcy
It has the same effect on the credit.
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.
In the State of Texas, the answer would be "YES" as both parties signed for the car loan and both are responsible for the balance due. I was the primary signor but the cosigner had the car and was making the payments. Then she stopped making payments after owning the car for 3 years and the car was repossessed.
The other co-owner or cosigner will be responsible for the debt.
VERY possible. reporting repos is up to the LENDER(of course, they usually do). It was very much repoed from you sooo. Nothing you can do about the co-signor having or not having a repo on their credit.
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.
It would depend on why they are sueing you and also what the disposition of the bankruptcy is.
