Don’t worry, this is quite simple! When you use Housing Hand, as your rent guarantor we will need a co-signer to sign up with you. This can be a parent, family member or friend, they do not have to be based in the UK. They will need to be working and over the age of 18 and this typically will be suitable. We won’t need to credit check them or you.
Housing Hand can process your application within one day as all parts of the process are completed online. Housing Hand has the policy to provide an immediate response to each enquiry.
A guarantor is required per person. If more than one tenant requires a guarantor, each tenant must apply to Housing Hand separately.
We use the Stripe as our payments processor so that you can pay with a credit or debit card online through our website. Alternatively, payment can be made by telephone.
Your co-signer might not complete the guarantor criteria. They may not be based in the UK, be a homeowner or may not have sufficient income. Furthermore, they may not have sufficient credit history to be eligible to your landlord or letting agent.
If you are an international student this might be a worry for you. However, it shouldn’t be. The whole process can be completed online. It can be done from anywhere in the world whether you are international or not.
We’re incredibly proud of the service we offer and think it makes us the best rent guarantor service in the UK. But don’t just take our word for it, this is what some of our university partners have to say.
