Is it a requirement for the bank to provide cosigners with past due notices and notification if the loan (unsecured) is being charged off? I know it is best practice so hopefully the cosigner will pay but is there a requirement? If there is if someone could lead me on where to find it I would greatly appreciate it.

You would have to start with State law.

Anon, Randy's word is the first step. Then, imagine the complaint to a regulator if a loan was delinquent and/or charged-off and the co-signor was unaware, but their credit affected? Instead of charging-off, why wouldn't the bank try to collect/take action against the co-signor(s)?
