What is a Guarantor

A guarantor should be a relative or close friend who is in a secure financial position and has lived in the UK for at least five years. They should be able to demonstrate sufficient income to be able to afford the rental of the property on top of their own personal monthly outgoings.

It is essential that they understand their obligations before agreeing to be a guarantor and are prepared to sign a Guarantor Agreement – sample below:

A – Proof of Identification

  • Copy of passport

B – Proof of Current and Previous Address – for last 3 years

Each proof must have the relevant address stated on your application for that year and the date sent. If you moved during a year you will need something for each property in that year. For utility bills, statements, etc it is the date it was sent to you that counts. Acceptable proofs include:

  • Utility bills including gas, electric, TV licence, council tax
  • Bank, credit card, mortgage or loan statements
