A co-signer is a second point of contact for Housing Hand. They are jointly liable for repaying Housing Hand should you default on your rent.
If you have failed to pay your rent, we would attempt to contact you and arrange a suitable repayment plan. If we are unable to do so, or should the agreement be broken, your co-signer would then be contacted to pay what you owe.
Please note, on joint and several contracts, you and your cosigner are required to repay Housing Hand for housemates nonpayments that have have been made on your behalf.
