Solicitor’s Certificate 

A solicitor’s Certificate is a legal document that is issued by a solicitor to confirm that the solicitor has carried out certain legal services for a client. This certificate is typically required by financial institutions, such as banks, to verify the validity of a power of attorney, or by a court to establish that a client has taken legal advice.  

The solicitor’s certificate is a crucial legal document that assures the recipient of the legality and enforceability of a transaction or document. It serves multiple purposes, including:

  • confirming the validity of Power of Attorney; 
  • verifying the legality of a contract, such as property transfers, business sales, or loan agreements.;
  • establishing that a client has taken legal advice; and
  • providing evidence to a court.

Personal Guarantee

A personal guarantee is a legal document in which an individual agrees to take financial responsibility for a debt or obligation owed by another party. This document is commonly required by lenders or creditors to provide additional security and assurance when extending credit or financing.

A personal guarantee may be required in various situations:

  • business loans;
  • commercial leases; or
  • credit applications.

Personal Guarantee

What are the risks of providing a personal guarantee?

If the business defaults on the debt or obligation, the individual guarantor is personally liable for the repayment. This can include the seizure of personal assets or legal action taken against the individual.

It is recommended to seek legal advice before signing a personal guarantee. A solicitor can review the terms and conditions of the agreement and advise on the legal and financial risks involved.

Can a personal guarantee be revoked?

Whether a personal guarantee can be revoked depends on the specific terms and conditions of the guarantee agreement. Generally, a personal guarantee is a legally binding contract and can only be revoked or terminated in accordance with the terms of the agreement.
