What is a guarantor?

Student Tenants will need a UK based guarantor in employment to complete a ‘Guarantor Form’. They will need to provide a copy of their photo ID and proof of address A Guarantor is someone, usually a parent, who promises to meet the terms of the tenancy, such as paying rent.  Guarantor Applications are subject to approval, and checks into their position may be required at the discretion of the Landlord. 


Where the tenant cannot provide a guarantor they can either pay the rent in advance or use a guarantor service such as https://www.housinghand.co.uk/
