A guarantor is someone who legally agrees to take on mortgage payments in the event that the borrower defaults. Guarantors can be required if the applicant or applicants have sufficient income for the mortgage approval, but insufficient credit strength.

A guarantor is unlike a co-borrower/co-signor in that they are not on the title of the property.
