What is a guarantor? What does the guarantor agree to?
A guarantor is a person who will co-sign an apartment lease with the tenant that will be occupying the apartment. A Guarantor guarantees to pay the rent if the tenant fails to do so. The guarantor is usually a parent, family member, or close friend who is willing to be legally responsible for the rental apartment.
Your guarantor is only financially responsible for the rent if there is a default in payment.

They sure can! They can log into the resident portal on the website or download the resident app via the app store (available on iOS and Apple) and set up their payment information. There is an option to set up recurring payments every month.
