On the Zillow application, there is not an option to add a co-signer or guarantor. If you want to include a co-signer or guarantor in your application, you can add them as a co-applicant. When you apply, add your co-signer or guarantor to the Your household section of the application. This will send an email invitation to them to submit an application. They can click on the link in the email to submit an application, credit report, and background check.
Good to know:
- Generating a credit report and background check is $29 per individual.
- Your co-signer or guarantor will need their own account on Zillow to generate their screening reports.
- Applications that have been submitted can’t be edited. If you need to add a co-signer or guarantor to an application that has already been submitted please see this article for help editing your application.
