Our mission is for everyone to be able to move into a home they’ll love, so we want to make our rent guarantor service affordable for everyone. So if you’re an international student moving into a home in Ireland, you can split our fee over 8 months for as little as just €50 a month.
You’ll need some ID; If you’re a student you’ll need some proof of study and If you are a working professional you’ll need proof of income. We’ll also need proof of address and your co-signer’s details. You can find out more in our Help Centre.
Much of this depends on you! You can get approval in principle immediately, but we need all of your documents to progress. Then we contact your accommodation provider. Typically, with everything we need in place, it’s just a few days.
Working professionals need to show they earn 1.5x their contribution to the rent, and students need to show proof of study. We then need some other documents and a co-signer. We accept 99% of applicants who can provide those details.
This might seem confusing, but don’t worry, it’s quite simple.
When you use Housing Hand as your rent guarantor, we’ll need a co-signer to sign-up with you. This can be a parent, family member or friend. As long as they’re working and over the age 18 they’ll usually be suitable. We won’t need to credit check them or you, it’s just someone else we can contact if we can’t get hold of you.
Many of our customers had questions before joining us – so don’t worry if you do too! Check out our Help Centre and you’ll find all the answers you need (and probably some more!)
