Co-borrowers have their name on the property and are equally responsible for paying back the loan amount. When you refinance your home, you can add or remove co-borrowers from the mortgage and/or title.
Adding a co-borrower can be advantageous in some refinancing cases, particularly if the combined income and assets help you qualify for more competitive rates and terms. If a co-borrower has outstanding debt or other factors that could damage your chances for getting approved, you may want to consider removing them from the loan when you refinance.
