If a tenent defaults on a rental lease and there is a co-signer, it the co-signer fully obligated to honor the terms of the lease?

By definition, the co-signer is fully obligated to do what is required under the lease if the tenant does not.
Keep in mind that this advice is based purely on the little bit of information that you have given to me. There may be other factors that would change my opinion. Further, no one can rely on advice from an attorney who has not been retained. Since it appears that you have not retained an attorney, before you take any further action, you should contact an attorney (either me or someone else) to discuss your matter in more detail. Only then will you be able to rely on the advice. I will be happy to assist you. Feel free to call me at 856-546-8010. If you mention LawGuru, there will be no charge for your first consultation. Good luck! Rob Gleaner
I agree, but I have not seen the lease, so this is a general response.
