Understanding Guarantor's Role in Tenant Documentation

We must provide our tenants copies of a few documents before they move in, e.g., gas safety certificate, EICR, EPC, How to rent guide and deposit information. And we ask them to sign a document to confirm they received them.

If the tenant requires a guarantor, does the guarantor also need copies of these documents?

Tenancy Agreements

Landlords should be aware of the benefits of written tenancy agreements and the procedures necessary for obtaining such an agreement. Although a landlord can create many short-term tenancies (three years or less) without a written agreement, it is generally not advisable for landlords to allow occupation without first having secured a signed formal tenancy agreement.
