Personal guarantee of company debt
This personal guarantee is the equivalent of the "PG" your bank might ask you to sign when storm clouds gather around your company. It is for use in any situation requiring an individual to guarantee the debt of a company, but most usually when the guarantor is a director. Applicable to any situation where money is owed. Suitable for use by lender or guarantor as it provides a wide range of options to produce a final version with high or very high level of lender security.
- Solicitor approved
- Plain English makes editing easy

About this document
This is a professionally drawn personal guarantee agreement for a lender to put to a company director as a condition of either increased lending or forbearance in enforcement of existing loan conditions. First, it identifies an original loan agreement between the lender and the company, then ties the guarantor to it, to “stand in the shoes” of the company in the event that it was unable to make repayment when due.
The agreement provides many options primarily to strengthen the position of the lender. Some could be deleted so as to provide a softer agreement for the guarantor if required.
