What You Need to Know

When you are asked to act as a guarantor for someone, it’s essential to understand the responsibilities and potential legal implications of this role. 

At Tann Law Solicitors, we provide valuable advice to guarantors to help you make informed decisions and protect your interests.

What Is a Guarantor?

A guarantor is an individual who agrees to take on the financial responsibility for a loan, lease, or other financial obligation if the primary borrower or tenant is unable to meet their obligations. 

Acting as a guarantor is a significant commitment, and it’s crucial to fully comprehend the implications before agreeing to this role.

Understanding Your Role as a Guarantor

When you agree to become a guarantor, you are essentially providing a guarantee to the lender, landlord or creditor that you will step in and cover the financial obligations of the primary borrower or tenant if they fail to do so. 

This means that you may be required to make payments, cover debts, or fulfil contractual obligations on behalf of the borrower or tenant.

Communicate Openly

Maintain open communication with the borrower or tenant. Discuss their financial situation and understand their ability to meet their obligations. 

This can help prevent potential issues down the road.
