The person who wants to rent my flat has only been self employed for 9 months so he says he could get his dad to be his guarantor. Could you advise me on what I need to do now. Do I need to makes checks on the father as well as getting him to sign the guarantor form. If so what checks eg homeowner, employment details, bank details anything else. He also says he rents a flat in Edinburgh which amounts to more than the rent for my flat. If I get 6 months bank details of this would this be secure enough. PR
