Guarantor loans are a style of unsecured loan where there is a need for a guarantor to cosign the agreement. The guarantor for guarantor loans are said to trust the applicant but they are also agreeing to pay off the debt if the person that borrows the money defaults on their payments.
In the modern era, guarantor loans are recognised as a positive alternative to payday loans. Guarantor loans are considered more inclusive because the applicant's credit rating is not taken into consideration. People with no credit rating at all can apply for a guarantor loan and this is a loan with an attractive rate of APR which can be placed into an account faster than most traditional loans - A guarantor loan can be appealing to many people.
While the presence of the guarantor is a relatively recent innovation with respect to unsecured loans, it is a common type of agreement for many financial agreements, such as letting contracts and mortgages.
