Haven't read past the first 10 posts, but many companies will wave/lower deposits if he signs up for automatic payments, which he can do with a credit card or debit card/bank account. Did he ask about that?
Also even if they don't wave the fee, if you really feel compeled to co-sign then at the very least sign up for the automatic payments and have him send the payments to you every month so at least you control it.
