For this topic, we will be focusing on co-signing a mortgage loan. Typically, where a parent has co-signed a mortgage for a child, it is not the intention of the parent to move into the property or be responsible for the property, payment of the mortgage or to benefit from the equity when the property is sold. However, whether the co-signer is a family member or a non-family member, a co-signer is an equal partner with the other borrower(s) on the mortgage. A co-signer signs mortgage documents, is registered on title and is responsible for the payments on the mortgage.

    Mortgages are a funny thing. On the one hand they allow you to become a home owner without saving up enough money to purchase the home outright, which is a really good thing.
