If you cosigned promissory note for a loan and someone you know purchased the letter. Is the note still valid even if it belongs to a new owner and the signers didn't sign a new note Can one be sued?

This would be a question I would go ask my banker. If they can't help you then they might be able to point you in the dirrection of someone who can. From what I know... If your name is still on the loan papers then your answer is "Yes" you can be sued for the remaining balance on the loan. Do what you have to do to make sure that your name is nowhere on the new loan application or you can try get a written statement from the loan company that says that you have been relieved of your financial obligation to this loan.
