What Is A Personal Guarantee?

In simple terms, a personal guarantee is a legal commitment to repay a debt if the original borrower fails to do so. Essentially, you are acting as a personal guarantor for a business (usually your own), so if your company has a regular loan repayment to make, you effectively guarantee that you will personally step up and pay this if the business cannot.

Before taking the step to become a personal guarantor for a business loan, it’s well worth knowing all the legal aspects involved in the contractual relationship you will be entering into. It’s at this point in the process that we would suggest seeking out sound legal advice from a commercial solicitor with vast experience in the field.

What Is An Option Agreement?

Options agreements are usually in place when a developer and a landowner are looking to finalise a sale. The option agreement gives the developer the option to purchase the land at an agreed sum or market price and gives them the ability to obtain planning. This gives the developer security in that they have already effectively gained planning permission before the sale has gone through. This helps to ensure developers don’t purchase land and find they are unable to carry out the work they had hoped to after the sale has already completed.
