Provided by Housing Hand

Housing Hand is proud to partner with the University of Salford for the “University of Salford Guarantor Service in association with Housing Hand” to help UK, EU and International students, supply a qualifying UK Guarantor when renting in the private sector.

What is it?

House finder Service

UK, EU and International students alike have found providing a qualifying UK guarantor a hurdle when renting in the private sector. Housing Hand has partnered with the University of Salford to alleviate this issue for students.

Housing Hand stands as the guarantor for the students, who are unable to provide one.

What does it cover

House finder Service

Housing Hand covers the full amount of rent as well as any damages, dilapidations and professional eviction costs, if any, incurred during the tenancy.

We can stand as a guarantor for a minimum of 6 months to a maximum of 12 months. The student must renew for the Housing Hand service once their guarantee has expired after the 12 month tenancy.

 

What does it cost

University of Salford Cover

For students from the University of Salford the fee is 8 monthly instalments of £35.00 or an upfront cost of £250.00.

How to apply

It’s nice and easy and Housing Hand will help

Our service is quick, easy and simple to use. As a University of Bristol student, they apply at https://my.housinghand.co.uk/register. The student must complete the Housing Hand application form and the accommodation provider must accept. Then Housing Hand confirms their acceptance onto the service.

Why can my co-signer not be my Guarantor?

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.

Do I need to be in the UK to complete the application?

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.
