What are your rights as a mortgage cosigner?

If you are not an owner of the property, as a co-signer you are fully responsible for paying the mortgage. You have no other rights in the property.


Can a cosigner of a mortgage who is not on the deed legally become the primary owner without notifying the primary owner?

The only way to become the owner of real property is by deed or by inheritance. A person cannot make themselves the owner. They must acquire ownership via a deed from the legal owner. If you co-signed a mortgage for land you do not own then you are simply a volunteer who agreed to pay the mortgage on land you do not own. That doesn't give you any ownership interest in the property. If you are a co-owner of the property who also co-signed a mortgage, you cannot make yourself the "primary" owner of the property. You would need a deed from the other co-owner.

What are the disadvantages of cosigning on a mortgage?

If the primary borrower defaults the cosigner can get "stuck" with a huge debt and ruined credit. A cosigner has the same legal obligation to repay a loan as does the primary borrower.

A co-signer has an equal obligation to pay the mortgage.

The bank can take possession of the property if the mortgage isn't paid.
