Guarantor Requirements

  • Are a student
  • Not in full time employment
  • In a probation period for a new job
  • Under 2 years of self employment
  • Do not have sufficient income (a student loan does not count as an income).
  • If your credit rating is insufficient (deemed by Experian or other relevant credit check companies we use) then a guarantor is also likely to be requested.
  • The guarantor must receive an income of at least 2.5x the amount of the monthly rental (for example, a £1000 per calendar month flat shared between two people with low income would require two guarantors with at least £1250 net monthly income or one guarantor for both tenants with at least £2500 net monthly income).
  • If a guarantor is self-employed, a credit check may be carried out on the business. A tax return, letter from an accountant or SA302.
  • In some cases, we could ask you to pay the first six months rent upfront, e.g., when your income is lower than the required level, depending on the Landlord’s preferences. Please note you will still be added to the tenancy agreement and would need to sign it when we send it to you.

Please note that unfortunately we no longer accept card payments and all rental or deposit payments are required by bank transfer.
