Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
The guarantor would not. it would be a matter for the parties to sue each other and reach a settlement. But that in itself does not release the guarantor.
The guarantor is only released when the creditor allows. Otherwise they must pay the obligations of the contractee. If there is a dispute that must be resolved between the two parties, it does not involve the guarantor.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Hi Alex,
How would we take away the guarantor from the equation so that the folding of a limited company would distinguish the contract entirely?

Hi Tim - if you are the creditor you can release the guarantor.
If you are the guarantor then you can only be released by the creditor, no one else.
Does that clarify?
