Some common questions we are asked regarding the Guarantor Form are: 

         1.  Why do I have to co-sign or guaranty the Applicant?  We require each applicant to meet certain qualifying/selection criteria in areas of rental history, income and credit. The applicant did not meet said criteria

2.         Who else must provide a guaranty form?  Anyone who is rooming with the applicant and does not meet our qualifying criteria.


    3.         Will I be notified if there are any problems with the rental property?  Yes, however it is the responsibility of the applicant to keep you informed.  We will notify you if the problem becomes more serious.


    4.         What are my financial responsibilities?  By signing the Co-Signer Guarantor form, you are agreeing to be financially responsible for the lease and all obligations and liabilities should Tenant(s) fail to comply. The lease states each applicant is jointly and severally liable for the lease terms, therefore, you are also jointly and severally liable for all financial obligations. In other words, you are responsible for payment of any unpaid rent, late charges and damages incurred by the tenants.


    5.         Do you check my credit and verify my employment?  Yes, your credit report is reviewed and your employment is verified.  You will also be expected to pay the $50.00 fee to process the verifications.
