    Northern Ireland Guarantor

    Hi, I have prospective tenants who need a guarantor. Their only option is someone who lives in Northern Ireland. If the guarantee was on a property in England, would it be covered by English Law? If so, how would I enforce it?

    Any help/advice appreciated

    Northern Ireland is a separate country, so has it's own distinct legal system.

    I expect that if LL needs to pursue the guarantor for e.g. unpaid rent, you would need to get a solicitor who specialises in Northern Ireland law.

    A solution would be to get tenant's with a guarantor in England or Wales.

      A Northern Ireland guarantor can certainly guarantee an E&W tenant's obligations.
      The problems would potentially be in how to enforce an E&W liability/judgment against a guarantor outside the jurisdiction.
