Thank you for your question. I am a licensed New Jersey professional and will be happy to assist you with your concerns.

That depends on whether the lease was renewed or kept up to date. In general if a lease is in place, then the guarantee gets 'renewed' while the contract is valid, since each new payment for rent renews the terms. However if the lease was terminated, amended, or it has gone 'month to month' with changes from the original terms, then perhaps there is a basis to claim that the guarantee has expired. But in general and by default that guarantee is probably still binding.
