408, 410 (1931) (enforcement of the guarantee in which the lender attempted to recover an unpaid part of the debt from the guarantors after the enforcement on immovable property had not satisfied the total amount of the unpaid debt). It may be easier for a business to get a loan if several people are willing to guarantee the company`s debt. For example, the four owners of a small startup may agree to give unlimited guarantees to a lender. This does not mean, however, that each guarantor is only responsible for his proportional share (25% in our example) in the total debt. Most warranties contain “joint and several” liability rules, and while warranties on this matter remain silent, North Carolina law imposes joint and several liability on guarantors. This means that, unless the guarantors are liable for a certain amount under a limited guarantee, the lender can hold each guarantor liable for the full amount of the borrower`s commitment. In addition, the lender may choose to sue only one or one number less than all guarantors for this total amount, so guarantors must fight among themselves to ensure that the debt is distributed fairly. While some guarantees can only be guaranteed to guarantors for a single commitment, lenders often offer a guarantee that will remain in effect indefinitely and that will guarantee all past, current and future commitments of the borrower to the lender, as well as any extensions or extensions of this debt. Before signing a warranty agreement, read all the conditions carefully.
