Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
Do you mean that your name is ***** ***** or did they leave his name off the accounts entirely? Is his name listed on all the paperwork you signed, including the loan paperwork and the contract for the sale?
It sounds like it's just a mistake. If his name's on all the paperwork from the dealer, they should be able to fix it for you. You might even get them to take care of it by phone. You'd only have to go to the dealer if he didn't fill out the loan papers and you have to get the whole deal redone.
You might want to have him check his credit report, too. It's possible that the bank only lists the first person's name on the coupons, and that's always going to be the cosigner. He can look for free at www.annualcreditreport.com or www.creditkarma.com.
You're welcome. I hope you can fix this easily. Have a good day.
