Manager signing personal guarantee / Comments on Kelso's nuts / Sign up for Free Webinar
February 9, 2021
Manager signing personal guarantee
            We presented a lease agreement to an apartment complex.  The manager is not comfortable signing as a personal guarantor?  Is that necessary if they fill in all the other holding company entity information?  They would like to send back their agreement with a PO, KK agreement attached to it.  
            A manager should not be expected to sign a personal guarantee, though that is an issue for the manger and his employer.  From your perspective you'll accept all the personal guarantees you can get.  We see guarantees signed all they time by inappropriate people; lower level employees, managers, agents, friends.  First of all, you don't need a personal guarantee for the contract to be fully executed and binding.  If the signing entity [or person] is credit worthy then you don't need a personal guarantee, and don't expect to get one.  After all, you shouldn't expect Neiman Marcus, JC Penny, Tailored Brands, Brooks Bros, Sears and Toys R Us to sign a personal guarantee.
         Yes, you guessed it; all the above filed bankruptcy petitions.  You would have a better chance if you had a personal guarantee.  If you get a job from a new business you should try and get a personal guarantee, from the owner, not a mangers.
Comments on Kelso's nuts
            Your response prompted my wife to start playing "make an ugly woman your wife" on the computer.  I find it odd because she's beautiful.
