What is a guarantor?

When you rent a property in the UK, it’s common for landlords to ask for a rent guarantor. This is someone who the landlord can call on if there is a problem with rent payments. If you cannot find a UK rent guarantor, you’ll usually be asked to pay some or all of the rent for your tenancy upfront.

With a rent guarantor you don’t need to pay rent upfront as the landlord has someone they can call on if you fall behind with rent payments. Housing Hand have been a guarantor for over 80,000 students and working professionals.
