Co-signing more than one loan?

Asked by Jeremy, South Windsor, CT Tue Jun 3, 2008

My fiancee has already co-signed a mortgage with her mother for her mother's house. Is it possible for her to also co-sign with me? If so, do you know which banks may allow this?

It's not necessarily whether or not she can co-sign, its more a matter of whether or not it will help you get the loan. It comes down to whether or not she can afford both loans. They will look at her total debt to income numbers and decide. You should contact a good, reputable mortgage officer and ask this question. Only someone with all of the info can give you a real answer.

As stated below, the issue is not whether she can co-sign on another loan it is whether your combined debt to Income fits lending guidelines. The best way to figure this out is to talk to a Loan Officer and have them take a no cost application and run your combined credit so they have all the details. You should be fine if all your recurring debt on your combined credit report is less than 50% of the gross income you both make. I will be happy to help, give me a call.

A person can co sign more than one loan. The key is that the loans that the person co signs count towards their debt to income ratio. Depending on their gross monthly income, they could either help with co signing for the new loan or can be ineligible due to the high debt to income ratio.

I would suggest that you talk with your attorney and with your banker. They will be best suited to answer your question. The regulations for a loan, have gone through many changes this year.
