How to find a guarantor in France?
A guarantor is a person who guarantees for you: he or she agrees to pay your rent if you no longer have the means to do so.
In France, a guarantor is almost always required for people who want to rent an apartment, whether they are foreign or French.
⚠️Your guarantor must be French. If you do not have one, other solutions are available to you!
