Hello all -
Why is it that Openrent treats my garantor as a second tenant to the property I will be renting?
It literally sends correspondence with wording that includes us both as Tenants.
I am not late for payment or anything- I am just at the Deposit payment/ rent upfront stage, and have paid it all, so I don’t understand why it does that.
I had garantors in the past and never had that happened with any Agency.
The landlord told me that it wouldn’t be a Joint Tenancy.
And I don’t expect a garantor to be included as a Joint tenant.
The only thing I wonder is whether it does that because I mentioned I will get help from the DWP to pay the rent as I am in Maternity leave.
However it wasn’t agreed that the garantor would be asked to pay anything when I pay on time.
I would understand if I were not paying but it is absolutely not the case.
