A guarantor is equally liable for the obligations of the tenancy agreement including rent payments, damage costs and any other charges. A guarantor must be a permanent UK resident, employed and have no record of CCJs or Court Orders. Q Student reserves the right to decline a guarantor if they are not deemed as suitable. In this situation the tenant will be requested to provide an alternative guarantor. As a Guarantor you are legally guaranteeing the rent and all other liabilities under the terms of the tenancy agreement. We always ensure that we have guarantors for ALL tenants on the agreement and therefore although the liability is joint & several and all other guarantors and tenants are in the same position. So far, we have never had to chase guarantors for any monies due from tenants other than their own son or daughter.
