    Guarantor Agreement

    I am trying to find a good guarantor agreement template.

    I have found one but it mentions Law of Property Act 1925 section 146. That seems a bit old, is it likely to be out of date or is that law still relevant?

    Cheers

    Don't know if there is an 'official' template but it should state 'signed as a Deed of Guarantee' and ideally specify duration. eg min fixed term, for term of AST operation or full term of T occupancy of property.
    G should be provided with copy of proposed AST and 2 copies of G to sign, 1 for retention, 1 to return before T can be granted.
    Note G can request his removal as G at a later time.

      Oh dear! You need to read up on the LPA 1925 S.196 as it affects all ASTs with regard to the service of Notices.

      There are some Acts of Parliament that go back to the 13th Century that are still relevant today concerning recovery of outstanding debt!

        I have found a a good looking Deed of Guarantee but it makes no mention of the landlord signing as well.

        Anyone got a view on whether a deed needs to be signed by the landlord as well?

        Also it talks about "any continuation, extension, renewal or re-grant" of the tenancy agreement. Does this phrase cover a periodic tenancy or should I amend the wording to make that clear?

          Also it talks about "any continuation, extension, renewal or re-grant" of the tenancy agreement. Does this phrase cover a periodic tenancy or should I amend the wording to make that clear? Yes it would cover a periodic tenancy , and possibly a renewal but don't count on it. After the fixed period of any tenancy has expired a guarantor can serve "reasonable" notice on you to withdraw from such a commitment.
          There's plenty of other posts exactly on this subject so scroll to the bottom of the page for starters, and then use the search facility if you need more info.

            It is unlikely that an off-the-shelf Deed of Guarantee will be fit for purpose. They are tricky things and have to be exactly right for the particular tenants and the tenancy, or they may be worthless.

            Get one custom-drafted by a solicitor or legal drafter. It could save you a lot more than it costs you. (The reverse is true of the kind of Guarantor Deeds you are asking about).

              Sonofahod
              Hi There,

              I am planning to move out of a shared rental property in March. Foxtons, the agency managing the property want to charge me a £300 "Change of Occupancy" administration fee as we have not reached the full term of the tenancy. I realise that the fee covers both me leaving...

              Your information is severely deficient,
              Of course a move out inspection can be chargedeven with no move in report.
              You accepted LA fees by proceeding with Application.
              Deposit ADR cannot be used to contest Agency fees.

              andy967
              HI - our boiler broke yesterday - our landlord is currently waiting for a quote for a new boiler - however one of the problems we have is that she lives abroad. It consequently means she's able to speak to people in the uk about any sort of business matter for 3 hours in the afternoon. I'm wondering...

              I live in the US at the moment, 7 hours behind the UK, yes its difficult BUT when my boiler broke I had someone out within 2 days, one thing she should have in place is a boiler cover or she should have tradesmen lined up who she trusts so if something goes wrong she can get in touch with them immediately,...

              Hi - I attended court a few weeks ago, we used several grounds in the section 8, the mandatory one being the rent arrears, they didnt put a defence in, show up or pay so the judge just asked for proof I had served the section 8 (proof of postage receipts from the PO) and an up to date rent statement...
