Guarantor signature witness

25 Oct 2021 | 1 comment

Hi

My wife and I are joint landlords for a proposed tenancy which will have a guarantor.

Is it ok for my wife to act as witness for the signature of the guarantor when it is signed?

Many thanks.

    The witness must not be a party to contract. As long as they’re not a party, any other person is suitable.

    From what’s described, you and your wife (joint landlords) are parties to the guarantor agreement so wouldn’t be able to witness.

    It’s possible for the tenant to witness (if you were signing up in person for example) because the tenant isn’t a party to the guarantee agreement as that agreement is only between landlord and guarantor.
