Guarantor Agreement

A guarantor agreement can ensure payment of rent or damages
of a rental property.

A guarantor application form must be completed by the guarantor and the applicable fee must be paid to facilitate credit or background checks.

Quite often the landlord will set higher qualification criteria for the guarantor than for the tenant, such as higher income required. This is because someone may enter into more than one guarantor agreement, such as the parents of more than one child and will therefore need a higher income to guarantee payment.

If the guarantor is married, provision must be made for the spouse's details and signature on the form below.

The guarantor should be given time to study the lease or rental agreement as well as the guarantee document and must fully understand the legal implications.

If the agreement can not be signed in the presence of the landlord or his agent, it can be signed in the presence of a notary public or commissioner of oaths.

What Happens if the Guarantor Dies?

This payment guarantee endures even upon the passing of the guarantor and becomes binding upon his/her estate.

Incidentally, it also endures beyond the initial rental period i.e. for any lease extensions agreed to by the tenant in writing. Our document makes provision for such an event and there is no need to enter into a new rental guarantee agreement with the guarantor.
