Question: Who usually signs a lease as a guarantor?
Answer:

Very often, a renter's parent acts as a guarantor, assuming the parent is in a sound financial situation and want their children to live in an apartment that might be a bit out of their reach. If you can't get a parent to be a guarantor, the next best bet would be a relative or friend.
