How to Remove a Cosigner from a Car Loan

Can you remove a cosigner from a car loan? Of course! There are a few different ways to do this. Look over your options and choose the one that best fits your situation:

  1. You can sell the car and pay off the loan. This will only work if you own the car or if the amount owed on the loan is low. If that’s the case, a dealership may buy the car from you and pay off your loan balance in the process. Also, your name needs to be on the title of the car.
  2. You may have the option of refinancing the loan in Lansdale. Let’s say you would like to remove your ex-husband or ex-wife as a cosigner, you may qualify for auto refinancing. If you’re able to refinance your vehicle, the loan becomes your responsibility.
  3. The contract for your auto loan may have a cosigner release option. Loans from dealerships or lending institutions may have a clause that removes any obligations on part of the cosigner after a designated number of payments are made. If your contract has this policy, speak with your lender to find out the specifics.
