Brandon Debt Collections Relief Lawyers Serving the Florida Gulf Coast Region
Co-Signers Are Protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
Although family members generally mean well when they co-sign for a loan, the unfortunate reality is that it opens the co-signer up for fair debt collection by the creditor and collections agencies. Co-signing a loan agreement puts your name on the bottom line.
In the event the primary applicant is not able to uphold terms of the loan agreement or files for bankruptcy, the co-signers on any outstanding loans for discharge may suffer the same negative consequences on their credit report or future credit opportunities.
If you are a co-signer of another party’s loan and are receiving harassing calls and notices from the creditor, or have been threatened with legal action, it may help to know that there are laws that protect you. Talk to an experienced bankruptcy and debt-relief attorney at The Golden Law Group. We will advise you of your rights and help you fight back to enforce the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). If the creditor has abused the law, you may even be able to sue for damages, as you put a stop to liens, garnishments and other aggressive collections practices.
