Can the lender contact the cosigner without trying to contact the borrower first?

not likely that she has not been contacted. I know how my mom is at 80, she might not know who it was on the phone. Good Luck

You don't have to contact anyone. The lender will report information on the primary borrower, cosigner, joint owner, guarantor, and other relationships.

Yes. But for now the lender has you and will get their money from you as they would the primary borrower. Cosigning is a really, really bad idea. At least for the cosigner. Everyone else seems to benefit.

No, but if the borrower misses enough payments, the cosigner will start getting collection calls as well.

A lender can't garnish wages; that has to be done by court order. That can be accomplished, but usually only after the lender has made the cosigner responsible for the debt and failed to collect. After all, that's the responsibility of being the cosigner -- to provide payment should the primary borrower fail to pay.

If the lender requires it. They don't always, but it is sometimes preferred.
