The cosigner can be held responsible for the loan if the original signer does not repay. Thus, the creditor has another means of access to the money, similar to collateral, and thus the presence of a cosigner lowers the interest rate.

You can buy a home after foreclosure without a cosigner as soon as 6 months after a foreclosure 12 months if it's also a bankruptcy. The issue is the interest rate.

The lender should be looking only at your ability to repay the loan when they determine the amount they will lend, since they assume you will be making the payments. They also want to be sure the cosigner can make the payments if you don't, but they would not combine the two financial statements to determine the amount that the two of you together could afford. They may offer a slightly better interest rate, but if the lender wants you to get a cosigner, it usually means you will not get a loan without one.
