Here is the information in their own words.
If you need a guarantor to rent accommodation, you’re going to want to read this.
“Help! I can’t find a guarantor!” is one of those things we’ve heard a few time. Do landlords ask for guarantors in countries where you don’t know anybody yet? Even in your own town you might be a student with no guarantor. We’ve met students in both those situations. Google has 6,810,000 results of people looking for help finding a guarantor.
So yeah, we could say it’s a real problem.
Many landlords offer an alternative: pay 6 months up front. Which usually is a lot of money! Way more than our Student Loan, Erasmus Grant or summer savings can cover.
This is also a problem.
Uniplaces has a solution: we’ve just launched the Uniplaces Guarantee. It will allow Uniplaces to act as a local guarantor for students who book with us. So, no you won’t need a guarantor. And you won’t need to pay half a year’s rent upfront. And it doesn’t even cost you anything. All you have to do is book through us.
