I am currently in the process of trying to rent a really nice townhouse with two other roommates. It is way better than anything else in the area and a lot of people are interested in it. We went to a showing and we all loved it and got the application. They want each of us to fill one out. I already submitted mine since I did not need a cosigner but the other two do since they have no credit.
The problem is that one of them will not be able to get their parents to cosign till this Sunday or Monday. The broker is somewhat holding it for us to get our applications in but there is another group that wants to get a showing this weekend. She needs to get the applications today or else she will have to show it the other group and they may apply for it at the same time. My question is it possible for me to cosign for the roommate? Is it a good idea? Since we will all sign the lease together would it even matter? Wouldn't we all be equally responsible for the rent?
