What is a guarantor and why do I need one?

A guarantor is someone who agrees to pay your rent if you can't. For example, one of your parents or a close relative. If you can't meet your rent payments, talk to your support team. We will only contact your guarantor to pay the rent as a last resort, if you cannot fulfill the rental agreement.
