Structuring Commercial Real Estate Lease Guaranties: Good Guy Guaranties and Guarantor Waivers and Limitations
Negotiation Strategies for Landlords, Tenants and Guarantors
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will address the purpose and types of commercial real estate lease guaranties, the differences between full and limited guaranties, including the commonly used “good guy” guaranty. The program will discuss the impact of lease default provisions and remedies on the individual guarantor.
- Evaluating whether a personal lease guaranty is warranted for a specific deal
- Full vs. limited guaranty
- Good guy guaranties
- Limitations on guaranty coverage
- Limited guaranty periods: rolling or stationary?
- Lease default and remedy provisions: impact on the guarantor
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What scenarios would require a lease guaranty and what factors should landlords and tenants consider in framing the necessity and scope of the guaranty?
- What are the benefits of the “good guy” guaranty and what provisions should be included?
- What issues in lease guaranties most commonly give rise to disputes between the parties and how can the parties draft the guaranty to minimize later disputes?
