LendingMate is a guarantor lender; all of our customers must have a guarantor or co-borrower for us to lend to them. A guarantor is a great sign to us that someone trusts you and that we should too, no matter what your credit score!
A guarantor's responsibility is to make the loan repayments if the borrower does not. A suitable guarantor is someone who is aged 19-75, has a good credit history with no trouble paying bills in the past, and who can afford to make the monthly payments if you don't.
Although they do not have to be a homeowner, it may increase the possibility of us accepting them as your guarantor if they do own their own home.
