Answer

In many circumstances a Landlord will require a guarantee from the shareholders of a company Tenant. In what circumstances can a Tenant negotiate a lease without providing such guarantees or is it possible to have the guarantee limited to, say, three months' rental? Does the guarantee continue even if the lease is assigned to a third party or if the lease is renewed by a future tenant? When is a guarantee likely to be held to be invalid? These are important issues which require negotiation and we can help with advice on what is currently acceptable in the marketplace.

“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
