Guarantor and unemployed/housing benefits question?
Hi, I was wondering could someone answer the following question for me. I am currently unemployed but moving to Glasgow. I have savings and a good credit rating and am looking to rent. I have spoken to estate agents and it seems that it is at their discretion if they will rent to me, which is fine, some ask for months of upfront rent and/or a guarantor. My issue currently is, if I do either or both of the scenarios, and I happen to be unable to find work, would I be eligible for any money from the Housing Association towards the property or would they just chase my guarantor for the money. I have never signed on before so I am unsure on the process, and I am looking at this as a worst case scenario if say in 6 months or later I still do not have work, I would not want my Father (guarantor) to be stuck with the bill. Obviously I expect to be able to find some kind of work even if it was just to pay the bills rather than claim. Any help would be appreciated.
