A revised contract

Had everyone including Landlord signed the old one?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No. The landlord hasn’t signed and neither has one party and their guarantor
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
another party has pulled out because they signed but their guarantor did not

Then anyone can pull out if its not been signed.

As such, yes you can pull out.

Its not binding until signed by EVERYONE

Thank you. What about because it says this: Joint and several liability means that any one of the members of a party can be held responsible for the full obligations under the agreement if the other members do not fulfil their obligations.
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I will give you 5* review definitely

Its not signed by all parties - its not binding until that happens

Does that clarify?
