    Question: Co Signing A Loan

    My buddy looking for co signer and none of his buds want to do because afraid of default.

    Do you have any ideas for him to try and convince family and or friend to do it for him??

    He wants cash for mobile repair store.
    Kid has a rep for casino habit but he quit 4 years ago.

    Help

    If he's buying an existing business ask the seller to carry the note with 30% down.

    He'll need to borrow way less and the seller will be on the hook but able to take back company in event of default.

    If buying new company or asset 'no way jose', one man shop too risky, he gets hurt it's dead.

    If family loan small enough could tie it into a whole life policy purchase on him so heirs taken care of down the road if he's 50 years old +

    Never, ever, ever, cosign a loan for anybody. For any reason.

    How much is he looking to borrow? What actually comes with the purchase? Truck? Contracts? Tools? Etc?

    I would not cosign for the Pope! I guess that is the way Warren Buffet started but, wow, this person has zero collateral? nada, zilch, butkus? What size of a loan is he interested in?

    Never co-sign for anyone. Make the loan direct if you want to, but no co-signing.
