Does a personal guarantee require independent legal advice?

A lender will typically require that an individual guarantor takes independent legal advice before entering into the guarantee.  This is done to avoid the possibility of a guarantee being potentially set aside by reason of the guarantee having been given under duress or having been procured by undue influence.  This is particularly the case if the individual guarantor is the husband or wife of a shareholder or director of the corporate borrower.

The lender will also require that the independent legal advisor confirms in writing to the lender that the guarantor has received independent legal advice on the guarantee, that the guarantor understood that advice and is willing to enter into the guarantee.  For a form of independent legal advice letter, see Individual guarantor: independent legal advice letter.
