Be a guarantor for a loan

If you’ve been asked to be a guarantor for a loan, it can be a positive way to help a friend or relative borrow money.

What is a guarantor?

This is someone who agrees to make any payments on the loan if the borrower does not. A suitable guarantor includes someone who regularly pays their bills on time, has a regular income and can afford to make the loan repayments if required. At the start of the loan the guarantor must be aged between 21 and 72.

Your partner, spouse, family member, friend or colleague could be a guarantor for loan.
