avalize

Definition

Third party bank or lending institution guarantees buyer obligation to a seller for a loan, purchase agreement or promissory note. When the third party avals the contractual document, it acts as a cosigner for the buyer. Banks or lending institutions will only avalize with extremely lucrative customers, to minimize their own risk.
