The cosigner can ask but I seriously doubt they will be successful. The cosigner knew the risks when they signed the loan application.

Can a cosigner be affected on a home foreclosure?

Yes. It is a common misconception that cosigners are not responsible for the debt of the primary on the account they signed. I'm not sure how that started, or why it persists, but cosigners, comakers, coguarantors, and cobuyers are equally responsible for the debt they sign with the primary. Collections agencies will not waste a lot of time trying to get a primary to pay when there is a cosigner who is easier to locate. And, because both are equally responsible, there is no need to even try to get the primary who is not paying to do what they are already not doing when the contract was written based on the better credit of the cosigner.

We have to be very careful when we put our names and credit at risk for those we love.
