We use the Stripe as our payments processor so that you can pay with a credit or debit card online through our website. Alternatively, payment can be made by telephone.

Why can my co-signer not be my Guarantor?

Your co-signer might not complete the guarantor criteria. They may not be based in the UK, be a homeowner or may not have sufficient income. Furthermore, they may not have sufficient credit history to be eligible to your landlord or letting agent.

Do I need to be in the UK to complete the application?

If you are an international student this might be a worry for you. However, it shouldn’t be. The whole process can be completed online. It can be done from anywhere in the world whether you are international or not.
