Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What type of agreement do they have please?Alex
Yes but what type of tenancy, is it an assured shorthold?
ok thanks. Its bad news I am afraid - unless you are released as being guarantor then you are liable for the rent.
Just because the Landlord increased the rent does not void or release you. As guarantor sadly you are liable until either the tenant moves out or the Landlord releases you.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Good luck. Alex
