Guarantor letters are relatively easy to write. While the details vary depending on why the letter is required, the basics of each letter will remain the same. You'll want to introduce yourself and your reason for writing, after which you'll want to move on to your agreement to act as a guarantor. There isn't really a set formula to follow and you'll be fine to organise it like you would any business letter.

Before you begin however, you'll want to make sure that you understand the terms of your agreement, have read all of the fine print, and have made your decision regarding what responsibilities you want to assume. Once you have covered these bases, then you should initiate a meeting between the contractor, the person you are guaranteeing and yourself so that you can open communication and clarify any concerns you might have.

After that, you can move on to writing the letter.

Start by introducing yourself and your relationship with the person you're acting as guarantor for, then detail the agreement you are willing to make. List your conditions and responsibilities before confirming your intent to act as guarantor, and clearly state your understanding of what your role will entail. Don't neglect to list the things you aren't willing to do; if you leave them out, you risk being legally responsible for costs that you hadn't anticipated. Once you've written everything down, give your letter a look-over or two, then sign and deliver it.

As you can see, the process isn't very complicated but it is very important. The guarantor letter is a legal document, a contract that can and will hold up in a court of law. Study the field and learn how to cover your bases before you even think to touch the nib of your pen to the white of your paper. The writing itself doesn't matter nearly as much as the thought and understanding that goes into the final letter.
