Anyone can be a guarantor. It's usual to be family, as they are more likely to trust you !

Your guarantor would be your parents I imagine.
(basically makes them liable if you don't pay your bills, rent, etc.)

As for payments I suppose it's down to what you prefer.

with his permission!

As for when to pay, its up to you. If you can afford to pay upfront, it saves the hassle and having to budget around regular outgoings.

What is it with this place when obviously someone who is only young is asking for advice and people just jump on them. :x

OP, if you can afford to pay upfront then you wont need a guarantor as there will be no concern for the landlord that you wont pay. If you need to pay monthly then yes your Dad can do it, provided he agrees and he will have to sign some sort of agreement for you with your tenancy, this basically means he will be liable should you not pay.

Personally I'd pay upfront, if you can afford to then do so as this will help with your budgeting through the year.


Well said! :thumbsup:

My daughter is at Uni, and I encouraged her to pay for her accomodation in instalments so that if anything goes wrong and they are reluctant to put it right then she has a bit of leverage - she can say she won't pay her rent until the boiler, washing machine, whatever it might be is fixed.
Student landlords are not always the most helpful bunch!

Plus loan payments come in instalments - once each term, and so that is how she pays.

I also prefer the full payment, like snowflake said, it gets stuff out of the way, especially if there's no extra charge - e.g UNITE charges if you're paying by direct debit. Sometimes, you might even get a discount if you pay in full. Although, I've always had a guarantor, even when I paid in full, it's just for their peace of mind really - they know, who to stalk, if you do a runner.

Sorry - didn't mean you meant the OP. And yes you're right!

Yes, that's correct, so are you saying that isn't young? Do you have anything useful to add?


I'm saying it's 18, ergo adult.

What you told her is unlawful.

Not sure about paying it all up front...

Do you know the others sharing with you, you might not take to them or prefer another set of friends and want to move after a month or so.

It sounds like good advice, but there is no provision in housing law for it.
The landlord would be within his rights to charge for late payment though.

id personally pay in installments, primarily because as butterbean said "if you need to apply pressure to the landlord" to get things done.

also, depending on the contract, you might end up living with terrible people and might need a way to get out legitimately or not (by having someone else move in and pay)...
