How to add a guarantor to the tenancy agreement

4 December 2021

Sometimes a good candidate applying for a rental property has limited renting experience or does not earn enough to prove they can afford the rent. So, adding a Guarantor to the tenancy agreement becomes very important for landlords. You can now add Guarantor's details to the agreement and ask them to review and e-sign the document as well.

A guarantor is a person nominated by your tenants who agrees to be responsible for any rent, cost of any property damage and other rental responsibilities that tenants can't or won't make.

To add a Guarantor, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to create a tenancy agreement using myRent Tenancy Agreement builder.

Once the agreement draft is complete, the Guarantor (together with the tenants) will receive an email notification from myRent to review and e-sign the document. You will receive a message from us once it's done.
