On our training courses we recommend that if you do not meet the guarantor you ask them to provide a copy of their pasport or driving licence. Your argument then is that they are the only people likely to be in possession of such document.
The burden of proof is "on the nalamce of probabilities"/. If there is a witness even though he says he did not see the guaarantor sign, why then did he act as witness?
Stand your ground and see what happens. Ask for sight of his actual signature to compare and htreaten that this may become a police case involving forgery and obtaining a tenancy by deception
