Guarantors are required to own a home in the UK and have an income that meets a higher affordability than a tenant. Our affordability table can be seen below.

As a guarantor, you are committing to guarantee a tenancy, not an individual applicant. Joint tenants are jointly and severally liable for all the obligations under a tenancy agreement. By acting as guarantor, you could be responsible for the full rent, in addition to any other breach of the contract by the Tenant(s).

Guarantors are required to complete and return an application form and provide the following documents:

  • Photographic Identification (Passport / Driving License)
  • One of the following – Employment reference / accountant reference / copies of self-assessment tax returns for at least 2 years / annual pension statement
