Hello my owner has a new agent and wondered if the guarantor was still former agents, or do I have to find another one because I don`t want to ask the previous guarantor? Thank you In your defence, the owner did not proactively follow the arrears because he had the address of your guarantor and did not bother to ask him, at any time in the last two years, if the address he had for you was correct. A landlord receives a tenant to find a person who acts as a financial guarantor in case he does not pay the rent. In this way, even if the tenant is late in the rent, the landlord can demand payment from the guarantor, who should be able to honour the tenant`s financial liability. Guarantors are not legally obligated to form a legally binding tenancy agreement, so you do not need it. In fact, many landlords do not ask for tenants. The implementation of a warranty contract is required by many owners, as it offers a thick layer of security for homeowners at no real additional cost. www.nationaldebtline.co.uk/agency_information.php Suppose you were a shorthold tenant, then it is pretty clear that the landlord is violating section 213 of the Housing Act and, as such, you are entitled to the return of your deposit, plus a sum equal to 1-3x of the value of that deposit. Whether you get the full 3x if that were the case would depend on the facts of the case and the enormity of the violation. Did the owner only protect your deposit late or not at all? What happened to the bail bond when you left? Was it a one-time mistake or did the landlord generally fail to protect tenants` deposits? If you`re still in contact with one of your former roommates, it might be worth asking them. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me why people who live in Scotland cannot be guarantors of a rental in England? I stood as my niece`s guarantor on a field, unfortunately I was fired and no longer earns a salary required to say 30,000 per year. My last tenant`s wife didn`t work – no deposit recommended by the referral agency.
The new tenants are not married and their income is not enough – guarantee recommended by OpenRent. He maintains that he passed the seED; He earns enough and pays the rent. I think they have a hard time finding a family member who earns enough. Is there another way? To find an appropriate guarantor, it is worth referring to each potential guarantor to assess their suitability. I can`t stress how important it is for landlords to properly refer to guarantors (as they would as tenants)! It`s an aspect of being an owner that I certainly wouldn`t jump.
