Yes, that is what signing for something means. It means that you will pay, unless the other person pays. It doesn't really matter whether you are married or single, whether the other person is alive or dead, or any of the other things that you mentioned. If you sign for something, and no one else pays for it, for any reason, then you must pay for it.
Positive: 100 %

Yes, I'm afraid she will be responsible. If two people sign for a credit account and one of them dies, the other one is responsible for the payments and the balance.
Positive: 100 %

I am always amazed at questions like this. If you had loaned them money, instead of Wells Fargo, WOULDN'T you still want return of YOUR MONEY? If not, I want to borrow some money from you.

this actually should have been paid after your grandfather died as it was part of his estate. the will needed to be probated and all bills paid off prior to release of funds to his heirs. check with the attorney that probated his will. your grandma should know who that is. additionally, if it cannot be straightened out that way, as she cosigned the papers, she would be legally responsible if it was installed and not just an estimate.

Then the living person is still responsible for the full amount.
Answer #7 | 21/12 2013 11:22
Yes. That's the point of two people signing. Had he just signed, then the answer would be no.

The person living is responsible for the bill. This question should really be in the "credit" category.
