Yes, the obligation will be reflected on the co-signer's credit. Lenders do not differentiate between a signer and a co-signer. Both are responsible for the repayment of the loan. If the signer stops making payments, the lender will look to the co-signer for full repayment of the obligation. Co-signer be aware!
