Do I need a guarantor?

All full time students must provide a guarantor who lives and works in England. We will need to contact your guarantor and they will be required to complete an online assessment and sign a Guarantor Covenant.

What assessments do I need to complete and what documents do I need to provide?

All tenants must complete an online tenant assessment.  We also need to carry out Right to Rent Document Checks on all tenants.  This means that in normal circumstances we will need to meet you in person and you will need to provide us with relevant ID proving you right to reside in the UK e.g.: UK passport, Residence Permit, Right to Reside documentation.  Check out this link for more info.
