Is it possible for them to sue me for the licence in my personal name?Also, we changed unit part way through and did not sign a new licence. The address and payments were different.
Good afternoon, most commercial leases come with a guarantee agreement and if you signed this guarantee agreement then yes they can sue you personally regrettably. If you did not guarantee the lease then you can successfully defend any claim made against you personally. All the besr
