They owe me £1500 but its over the year since I have paid off the balance. The wife is in the UK but the husband run away to his country after I had assisted him to secure a loan and I had to pay off the loan as his guarantor.

Thank you. Was the wife not mentioned in the guarantee? Does the husband own aproperty?
Expert:  Alex J. replied 2 years ago.
Under the Civil Liability (Contribution) Act 1978 - as guarantor you are entitled to recover the money you guaranteed. So you could sue the husband. Do you have his last service address?
