About this document

This is a professionally drawn, short agreement which identifies an original contract, then ties a new guarantor to it, to stand in the shoes of the debtor, should that be necessary.

The agreement provides an option for changed terms of payment should you so require. You could change any term in the original contract. For example, the debtor may agree to an increased rate of default interest, or the creditor to extended payments or a different schedule of work against which payments are made. (If you make a change which affects the obligations of the creditor or debtor, they must sign too. If that happens, no-one needs to sign as a deed.)

Example:

Nineteen year old entrepreneur borrows from friend of family to start new business. Loan requires monthly payments. Borrower fails to meet them. His father agrees to provide “after the event” guarantee. Lender is happy and son can carry on with his business. No change to terms of original agreement.

Example:

Website writer agrees to write website for new limited company. No guarantee in the contract. Before it is completed, client decides to add a great deal more work. Writer now worried about payment, so insists on directors of client company guaranteeing payment for the enlarged contract. This agreement would include adding a new schedule to the original agreement, by reference, and new schedule of payments.

Example:

Builder agrees to build a house against stage payments. When house up to first floor level, client fails to make a payment as required by the contract. Builder threatens to walk out and video the story for Facebook. Client persuades brother-in-law to give guarantee of the debt as instalments become due. Builder agrees to complete the contract.

The law in this document
