I am considering being a guarantor for my brother (for his apartment in NYC) because he doesn't make enough money.
I'm also considering moving in the next 6 months or so.
If I am the guarantor for his apartment, could that affect my ability to sign my own lease? For example, would I then have to make 80x his rent plus 40x of my own?
Would my (new) landlord even be aware of the fact that I'm his guarantor? Does that show up on a credit report or would there be another indication of it somewhere?
