Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I just want to know if I signed anything that makes me a guarantor.would I have received any copies for my records. This is pure speculation on my behalf. To my original question.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 3 months ago.

Not necessarily. But was it from a company you had the document?

No just a friend.

Ok - but if it was a PG, what would that be for?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
perhaps I signed paperwork to be a mortgage guarantor.
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 3 months ago.

You need to ask for a copy. You are entitled under the Data Protection Act 1998

If your friend refuses then you can bring a claim for disclosure in the County Court.

You can do this by completing form n244:

The Court will list the matter down and decide whether to order disclosure.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
