Did you act as a guarantor on a pub lease or tenancy agreement?
Has a pub company like EI Group, Punch Taverns, Star Pubs and Bars, Marstons, Admiral or Greene King or their lawyers written to you demanding large sums under a personal guarantee are they threatening your assets or wanting to put a charge against your home – if so what can you do about it?
2021 is going to see a large uplift in business failure as many pub agreements are in default and the early stages of being forfeited. How does a guarantor know if the amounts claimed are correct, what if the agreement you signed was valued unfairly. What if you didn’t get independent legal advice before signing as a guarantor?
Perhaps there are things that could render the agreement void and or unenforceable, but how can you tell?
