Some landlords and agents ask for a guarantor form to be completed. Your guarantor will become liable for your financial responsibilities, which means they will be liable for your rent if you don’t pay. If you do not have anyone who is willing/able to do this, then you will need to find accommodation where a guarantor is not required.
It is sometimes difficult for international students to provide a guarantor, so please ask the agent or landlord about this before signing anything.
NTSU recognize that it is difficult for International students to provide guarantors when looking for private rented accommodation here in the UK. We therefore worked hard to get NTU to partner with a guarantor scheme to help our students. NTU have now partnered with Yourguarantor to provide a UK based guarantor for students who need it.You will need to check whether this service is operational during the current pandemic. If it is not, you can check to see if other guarantor schemes are available.
