1. The lease agreement is in the name of the CC.
2. Yes, seperate documents were done by each of us.
3. Yes, the CC has cashflow problems due to the financial mismanagement of the partner and I had to support the CC 5 out of the past 6 months in respect of costs, to be able to pay the rent.
4. So far they can't, or havent produced any documentation to this effect- i requested a copy of our file but still waiting for any insight into this.
got hold of a copy of the Annexure to the lease document which gives my name, and the partners name and then states " In regard to the lease agreement as recorded in the schedule and annextures thereto do hereby bind myself/ourselves, jointly and severally, as surety/ies and co-principal debtor/s in solidum together with the Tenant,being CC.
There was no condition set in the sale agreement on this however.
