Using a Guarantor for your lease
This article describes the process of adding a Guarantor to your lease.
Using a Guarantor as a co-signer is an option that allows you to still rent an apartment in the case where you do not meet the minimum credit requirements. The Guarantor "guarantees" the performance of the lease -- for example, they agree to cover missed rental payments.
The Guarantor needs to do the following:
- Submit and application
- Note: The guarantor can ignore the part of the application dealing with Pets and Parking
- Pay the $35 application fee -- you can pay online here
If the Guarantor meets the minimum credit requirement, we will add them to your lease and they will sign the Guarantor portion at the end.
