Rent by new international student with spouse

Should the student visa status and the credibility of a guarantor be sufficient to rent a home by the student’s family

Probably depends a lot on who the guarantor is. The difficulty for many international students is that they don’t have a guarantor in the UK, and an overseas guarantor isn’t worth very much.

Yeah, difficulties with authenticating an oversea guarantor is a thing. And more challenges for the new international students (couple/family)

There are companies who will act as guarantor for a fee, you can search online.

Authenticating is one thing, bigger problem is that in practise, it would be so expensive and uncertain to pursue an overseas guarantor that it just isn’t worth it. Oh, and the first thing you need to consider is Right to Rent, you can go to jail for not following these rules!
