Customer Question

I was a director of a company that held a pub lease, the guarantor was the original proprietor, he left the business in debt because he could see it was in decline. I was left to manage the pub because I thought I had no choice as he had made me put a personal guarantee on a rather substantial finance deal. The business became untenable and despite the landlord claiming that it was OK to not pay a few months rent as she undertsood the predicament, she suddenly went to court and served an eviction notice. The guarantor alledgedly was taken to court for the rent arrears and some damages can there be any recourse against me from the guarantor?
