Director’s Personal Guarantee Clause & Mini Agreement
WHEN TO USE THIS DOCUMENT
This Guarantee document is a short easy to use clause with template agreement allowing whoever is offering credit to a company (the creditor) to take a personal guarantee from a director of that company. The director will be personally promising to repay the creditor if the company does not pay the creditor.
You can ask the director to makes an unlimited guarantee (not limited to a specific amount of money) or alternatively it can be limited to a maximum specified sum of money (e.g. limited to £1,000).
The agreement also means that the creditor is not obliged to pursue the company directly or first if it fails to pay but can enforce the guarantee by demanding that the director make repayment.
The director can end the guarantee by giving 14 days notice to the creditor. However, the director will still be liable for guaranteeing repayment of any credit that the creditor has given to the debtor until that 14 days notice period has passed.
