No. Whilst it is a requirement that your guarantor has to be a UK homeowner, they do not have to live in the property.
As part of our homeowner guarantor criteria, we only accept guarantors who are UK homeowners, meet our age criteria, have a good credit status and can demonstrate they can afford the monthly loan repayments. However, you guarantor does not have to own the home outright – it can be mortgaged.
For all information on who can be a guarantor, follow the link to our Guarantor Hub.
This question is not applicable to our Tenant Guarantor loans.
Loans are subject to status and affordability. *Consolidating debts may increase the term and the total amount payable.
Before entering into any credit agreement please make sure you can afford the monthly repayments, we recommend that you seek independent advice if you are unsure of any of the terms of our agreement. There may be other taxes or costs, not paid through us or charged by us, that you have to pay in connection with the agreement.
Late repayments can cause you serious money problems. For help go to www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk
