Is it possible to have a joint guarantor? A husband and wife want to be joint guarantors for one of their relatives. Thanks

    I don’t see this as being an issue. The only problem is if there comes to being a claim they might start arguing over how much each should pay. This is why we always insist on only one person being a guarantor.

    Our guarantee agreement doesn’t make them joint and severally liable although arguably it could possibly be implied.

    In reality you would sue both of them if it came to it so I don’t see it matters a great deal.
