Find a guarantor

It can be a challenge to speak to someone about being a guarantor, but here is some guidance to help you along to find a guarantor.

How to find a guarantor?

When looking for a suitable guarantor for a loan, think of someone you have a good relationship with and who might be able to help you out by being your guarantor. Write down a list of people and the order you would like to ask them to be a guarantor. You could ask your parents first, followed by siblings or grandparents, followed by close friends or other relatives. Remember not to put anyone under pressure.

Guarantor loans are all about trust – and it is important to make your guarantor aware that they can trust you.
