Getting a Mortgage as a Guarantor

By Pete Mugleston

“Hi, Does being a rent guarantor affect me getting a mortgage?”

Hi there,

Thanks for your enquiry, we’re happy to help.

If you apply for a mortgage and are a guarantor for a family member or friend, it could affect your application.

Lenders take a close look at all aspects of your income and outgoings, so the potential risk that you, as guarantor, may have to pay their debt, could have a negative impact when it comes to calculating affordability.

So it is possible that being a guarantor could prevent you from getting another mortgage.

This is why it’s important to think long and hard before you go guarantor, even for someone you trust, such as a close family member.
