How is it being a guarantor
on a loan?

Being a guarantor on a loan is the strength of guarantor loans. As a guarantor you know the borrower, and you feel they can and will repay the loan.

As a guarantor we will ask various financial questions in our assessment of you in guaranteeing the loan.

Once we have finished that process and the loan is approved, you will not hear any more from us as long as the loan is paid as greed, except for an annual statement we are required to send you.

The only time you are as a guarantor become involved with the loan again, is if unfortunately a payment is missed. We would contact you to make you aware, and to ask for your support to get in contact with the borrower to get the loan caught back up.

If for any reason the loan cannot be brought current quickly, we may then need to take further action against the borrower. We would also require you the guarantor to make any missed payments in lieu of the borrower's missed payments. Naturally, we would be contact with you throughout this entire process, and make suitable arrangements for both you and ourselves.

If for whatever reason the loan is not brought back current with any missed payments, we may need to take further action against the borrower, and possibly yourself, which could impact your credit rating and credit score.

These are always last resorts, and we will try to avoid them.
