No. A co-signer is a person who guarantees the loan and a co-buyer is a person who has equal ownership and liability. An example is when a young married couple wants to buy a car but does not have good or sufficient credit or enough collateral for the loan. They might get one of their parents to guarantee payment of the loan by becoming a co-signer. If the couple defaults on the loan, the co-signer becomes liable. In this same case, the couple as husband and wife, sign the loan (co-borrowers) and the purchase document for the car as co-buyers, sharing equally ownership and primary liability.
