As a student, it’s extremely difficult to secure an apartment in Paris without a guarantor. In fact, for a lot of students, such an endeavor has proven to be virtually impossible. This is because students are considered high-risk tenants, and a guarantor will almost always be required in order for them to rent any space.
The alternative involves having to pay three or even six months’ rent in advance every six months. In some cases, you may even be asked to pay for your entire stay! Clearly, that is not ideal when trying to get student accommodation, which means it’s vital to be able to get a guarantor.
What is the Role of a Guarantor?
A guarantor has the role of meeting all obligations and clauses contained in a tenancy agreement on the tenant’s behalf. This means that they are responsible for all legal liabilities taken on by the tenant. The guarantor is bound to comply by their contract, which means that if they don’t meet the tenant’s liabilities, the landlord can sue them for non-compliance.
You can think of tenancy guarantors as a sort of ‘insurance policy’ for the landlord to protect them in the event that the tenant defaults on paying the rent. A guarantor is also liable to cover costs and losses as well as damages and expenses that the landlord experiences if the tenant fails to do so.
It used to be that people were willing, for the most part, to act as guarantors for students, but as times have become increasingly tougher for most, legal claims against student guarantors have been on the rise. As such, potential guarantors are becoming less willing to put their names forward as tenancy guarantors. Fortunately, there is another simple and convenient solution:
