The answer will vary from state to state, loan to loan and insurance company to insurance company. However, in most jurisdictions the DRIVER is responsible for insurance, regardless of who owns/titles/leases the vehicle. If I understand your question, you are asking whether the principal on the loan or cosigner is responsible for insurance? Most insurance companies could give a rats donkey WHO carries insurance, so long as insurance meets the loans stipulations, but you would be best suited asking the insurance company.
None. A cosigner is entering into a legally binding contract to repay the debt if the primary borrower defaults on the lending agreement. The cosigner does not have any other obligation nor ownership rights to the property.
Yes, you can switch the cosigner to the primary on a loan. The way to do this is to have the loan refinanced.
If you go to the registration office with the primary and have them give consent to the cosigner
A cosigner is responsible for anything the primary party does not pay.
No. The purpose of requiring a co-signer is that in the case of a default by the primary borrower, the cosigner has agreed to be fully responsible for the loan. Therefore, if the borrower defaults, that's what you're there for if you're the cosigner.
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.
Yes the co signer is responsible for the entire terms and requirement on the lease just like the primary renter is. NO renters insurance cover the contents of the apartment and in case you cause a flood to the unit below and items of that nature. There is no insurance for the co signer
The cosigner has the same legal obligations to repay the debt as does the primary borrower. If the primary borrower defaults, the lender can begin proceedings to collect the full amount owed plus applicable fees from the cosigner. A cosigner can be sued just as can the primary borrower. And if the primary borrower claims bankrutpcy, the cosigner will still get "stuck" with the debt. The credit report of the cosigner will be equally affected, either in a positive or negative way, depending upon the circumstances.
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. But for now the lender has you and will get their money from you as they would the primary borrower. Cosigning is a really, really bad idea. At least for the cosigner. Everyone else seems to benefit.
