By acting as a guarantor you are agreeing to be financially responsible for the tenant.
Any tenancy or tenancy renewal will be issued on the understanding that the guarantor continues to be financially accountable for any breaches in the tenancy agreement. Your responsibilities as guarantor will only be ended by written confirmation from the landlord / agent or when the tenancy has officially ended by the correct notice being given by either party.

What we require from a guarantor

▪ Proof of income (3 months pay slips or bank statements) all guarantors must be earning at least three
times the monthly rent. If you are self-employed we will require written confirmation of your earnings from
your accountant or a copy of your most recent tax return.
▪ Proof of Mortgage
▪ Photo identification and proof of residency (bank statement is not sufficient)

any funds paid. The application for this property is subject to references and contract. It is not an offer of
