No, you signed, you are equally responsible for the payments, you are also equally responsible for what happens with regard to default. This is why the lender permitted you to sign as a co-securer of the original loan.

If you were to cosign for a rental agreement how will your credit be affected and how does one get removed as cosigner?

The way it may impact on the credit report depends on if the person pays the rent as agreed. It will also play a part in the cosigner's DTI. Usually the only way of being removed as a cosigner is if the agreement is reaffirmed by the primary holder and the lender. In the instance of rental agreements, a cosigner can sometimes be relieved of obligation if there is a breach of contract. For example, if the person moves someone not on the original rental contract into the apartment.
