Meet TheGuarantors

A NYC-based startup offering to act as the guarantor for apartment seekers that otherwise will not meet the stiff requirements of NYC landlords. For a premium in the range of two weeks to one month of rent, depending on the risk, TheGuarantors promises that even tenants who earn as little as 27 times the monthly rent and have credit scores as low as 630 can find a home in the city. Coverage is provided by Hanover. Bottom Line: LeaseLock comes to mind.
