I rent in the UK and I need a guarantor, I`m from Ireland, so my whole family has returned, my sister and her husband will be my gaurantor, is that possible? To find a suitable guarantor, it is worth carefully referencing each potential guarantor in order to assess its suitability. I can`t stress the importance for landlords to properly reference guarantors (just like tenants)! This is one aspect of being an owner that I would definitely NOT spare on. I am the guarantor of my son-in-law who has fallen behind in his rent. I received a letter from the estate agent in which he asked for £1,750 and told me I would be responsible for the legal costs when he is tried. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me why people who live in Scotland could not be guarantors of a rental in England? It may be possible to negotiate a rent payment in advance instead of a guarantee. The guarantor could agree on the liability of part of the rent if it is a joint lease agreement. But even if you make sure that the other guarantors have registered, it is still possible that your co-guarantors will “disappear”. An owner does not have to act against all guarantors, but may choose to sue the guarantor(s) most likely to pay. Even if there are other guarantors, you can answer for the full amount of the debt. My guarantor signed a deposit form three years ago, but there is no date on the duration of a lease. Which it was for six months.
After that, we only signed two contracts, but our surety hasn`t signed anything since. Some people have said that because there is no date to indicate the duration of the rental, he will be responsible as a guarantor until I am in this apartment. Can you tell me if it is or not? I asked them to send me the original forms I signed, because from what I read here, due to 1, the rent increase and 2, the rent extension, I am no longer legally bound to guarantee? But she said I had not signed for a permanent term, I signed for the duration of the stay. I need advice – I helped a friend last year and became a guarantor for 6 months, which ended in June 2011 – she recently received an eviction notice which she ignored and the owner would not spend £1000 to bring her to justice. I don`t talk to her anymore and I`m currently trying to get out of the contract, but the landlord states that the guarantee agreement states that you are responsible for the entire duration she is in the property, unless she leaves in case of a renewed, renewed or re-granted lease. If the tenant is in arrears in paying the rent set under the rental agreement, the surety pays the lessor. . . .
