Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did they ever release you as guarantor please?
Not been released as far as I know.
1. As Defendant you can have the case transferred to your home Court, if it is for the dent
* debt *
2. You are guarantor until released I am sorry to say, not just when the lease ends
3. Yes you are liable for the debts until you are released
4. I would go to Court if you can make it or make a formal application to have it transferred
5. You are liable until 2017 yes
6. If you can get a Solicitor I would do so
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
with the death of the joint tenant (husband) does that make any difference. Surely they are liable in the first instance and although mr Carter has died does that release mrs carter.
What is the situation of my trust can they take that.
Sadly that makes no difference, until you are released you remain as guarnator.
what does it mean that the solicitors client has now forfeited the lease?
That means the lease has come to an end.
But you would be responsible for any payments under that lease such as rent etc
Would that mean any payments which have occurred up to the end of the lease and no further?
Well if there is further rent due because the property is empty you would be liable for that too
sorry can you do that again please? if they have forfeited the lease from for arguments sake yesterday do I still have to pay rent after yesterday. If so that would seem funny as I would normally be able to get someone in to the property to run the pub. Not that that is really the case as I don't think anyone could make money there!
Ok - if the lease is for a number of years, say 5
If the lease is surrendered then liability ends.
If the lease has been forfeit say after 3 years that means they are technically liable for the remaining 2 years
But the Landlord should get other tenants in
The tenant (or guarantor) would therefore only be responsible for the empty period
Does this help?
I am still not sure. The lease ends in 2017 but the other side has forfeited the lease. Informing me today that they have done so. If they have forfeited the lease then I assume as owners they will have another lease written out and dealt with for another 10 or 20 years. So how would that affect me?
Oh the other side. Ok - in that case you are only liable up to the date they forfeit it
So only to the date they did that
Does that help?
Thanks very much. Sorry I have been a bit unsure. that has helped. Iain.
