Why a Guarantor?

What is a Guarantor?

A guarantor is a third party, such as a relative or close friend, who agrees to pay your rent if you don’t pay it. Your landlord can ultimately take legal action to recover any unpaid rent from your guarantor.

Why do I need a Guarantor?

A guarantor will be required if you are not on a reliable income/wage each month and therefore cannot prove that you are able to make the payments.

Please note that a Guarantor will be required if you are a student, have recently started new employment or where you cannot prove that you are able to make the rent payments satisfactorily.

What information will be required?

They must complete the guarantor form provided and must provide proof of their address through driving licence/ bank statement/ utility bill and proof of ID through passport/ driving licence.

Please note that a driving licence will only be accepted as one form of identification and second form will be required.

If you require further information or would like to discuss your personal circumstances, please contact our office directly.
