Benefits for Letting Agents

Increased Financial Security

Letting Agents who accept the Housing Hand Guarantor service can benefit from increased financial security and rental occupancy. The service also enables Letting Agents to close more leases by using the Housing Hand Guarantor service to ensure more prospective tenants are able to rent and place holding deposits.

More Tenants

Never turn away potential tenants because they do not have a UK Guarantor, or lose customers to your competitors. You will no longer need to put off potential tenants by requesting multiple months of rent in advance.

Award-Winning Service

Housing Hand are the only award-winning rent guarantor service in the UK. We were fortunate to win the Negotiator Awards – Supplier of the Year: Services & Products in 2016 and we have since been shortlisted for a number of industry related awards.

Eliminate Time Wasting

Spend more of your time showing a greater selection of properties to a larger pool of qualified renters, rather than helping clients who in the end are unable to rent as they cannot provide a UK guarantor or fail a tenant referencing check.

Streamlined Rental Process

Accelerate and streamline the rental process for individuals, especially those who are not UK citizens and who are relocating from abroad.


We check each international student tenant, ensuring they are registered at the university and have the visa to study in the UK. We also sign a legal contract with their parents/guardians to ensure that they act as guarantor for us should the tenant default on payment.


By becoming a member of The Guarantor Service, you will be eligible for our International housing service. This provides you with a wide range of benefits, including providing you access to thousands of prospective tenants as part of our relationship with UK Universities.

How does the Housing Hand Rent Guarantor Service Work for Letting Agents?

Once Housing Hand receives the application, your clients can often qualify for a guarantee typically within minutes. Your client will then receive a Provisional Certificate of Rental Guarantor that can be shown to prospective landlords during the property search. Full approval and issuance of the Rent Guarantee are subject to verification of application information and reference checks. When it’s time for your clients who have qualified to sign a tenancy agreement, they pay Housing Hand a one-time fee from £295 or they are able to pay their fee over 8 monthly instalments, starting at £42. Upon receipt of the first payment, we are able to return a signed Guarantor form. Although landlords still need to evaluate multiple risks associated with each renter, the Housing Hand Rent Guarantee eliminates the risk of rent loss. Instead of chasing after many different individual guarantors, landlords will have the security of dealing with a single, trusted UK company.

Housing Hand are a brilliant and assessable service who make an often stressful process easy. I always highly recommend our tenants to use Housing Hand if they ever experience any difficulty sourcing a guarantor or simply wish to pass the liability over. The service is always excellent, prompt and friendly. Housing Hand definitely makes my job easier and I intend to maintain our working relationship in the future.
