International and UK Students

As your Rent Guarantor we will take responsibility for covering your monthly rent, on your flat or shared house, should anything happen that prevents you from being able to pay your landlord. We can also offer you the option to protect yourself again any damages to your property, that your landlord expect you to cover. Our service has been designed with students for students.


International Students

As an International Student coming to the UK, you will normally be asked to pay your rent in advance if you do not have a UK based Guarantor. Often this advance payment is  6-12 months’ of the rental value of your chosen property, and in major cities across the country this can mean a payment of over £10,000. 

At Home Guarantee, we want to make the process easier for all international students, by offering a low-cost Guarantor Service which removes the need for a large advance payment and gives your landlord the security of a recognised Guarantor here in the UK.

Even if you have a parent or family member who is able to pay the advance payment for you, our service means that for a single fee your family members do not have to worry about their money being held as a desposit for the duration of your study.

UK Students

Many UK students will have a Guarantor available to them via their parents or close family members, however not all students will be in this position. Additionally, parents and family members may not wish to be a Guarantor or may have concerns about their responsibility’s of signing what is a legal obligation.

At Home Guarantee we will act as your Guarantor and take away the responsibility from those close to you, so they don’t have to worry about anything at all. Even if you have someone who is prepared to stand as Guarantor for you, the low fee we charge is usually seen as a more attractive, less risk option than taking on this responsibility personally.
