Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to helpwith your situation or get you to someone who can.
You are correct in that this is a personal guarantee this entirely defeats the purpose of having an LLC enter into the agreement because you would be agreeing to be completely personally liable, in addition to the LLC being liable here. So basically the worst of both worlds.
If the LLC were to default on any obligation to the owner, then he can come after the LLC assets, or either or both of your personal assets.
Unfortunately, I can’t draft legal documents for customers as that could imply an attorney-client relationship which I am prohibited from entering into under my independent contractor agreement with JustAnswer. You would need to contact a local attorney, probably a real estate or landlord tenant attorney could handle this, and have them draft up a new proposed agreement.
But this would be the case by default (i.e. only the LLC is liable) unless you agree to sign the personal guarantee....so a new agreement really wouldn't be necessary to confirm what is already the default scenario.
