What Does Guarantor Mean?
A guarantor is a third party in a contract who promises to pay for certain liabilities if one of the other parties in the contract defaults on their obligations. Guarantors sometimes appear on insurance contracts and also provide a sort of insurance themselves.
Insuranceopedia Explains Guarantor
Sometimes, one party can only get a loan from another party, or can only get a project approved, if a guarantor guarantees payment for any potential losses or liabilities. This situation commonly arises in the construction industry, given the extremely high amounts of money invested in construction projects.
