Asked 2 years ago in Civil Law from Mumbai, Maharashtra
the liability of principal debtor is co extensive with that of guarantor
2) since principal debtor has defaulted in paying the loan bank can sue both of you to recovery the money
3) you can repay the loan amount . once loan amount has been repaid by you then you step into the shoes of creditor and sue your friend to recover the loan amount
The liability of a guarantor is co-extensive with that of the borrower. The bank is free to proceed against you for recovery if the amount is not recoverable from the borrower. You can only 'persuade' not 'bind' the bank for OTS.
You have to talk to the manager of the bank and negotiate the OTS if the bank agrees to it.
Or you can ask the bank to reschedule the loan and its repayment terms so that you can do it from now on.
1. No. Accepting OTS proposal is not mandatory on the lending Bank and no Court can direct the lending Bank to accept the OTS proposal if the said proposal is not acceptable to the Bank.
2. However, negotiate with the Bank for the amicable settlement which they might accept since for enforcing security interest on your properties (if any of the same has not been mortgaged with the Bank) for your giving the guarantee, they shall have to wait for years.
There is any option to withdraw our guarantee or close the matter?
Asked 2 years ago
you cannot with draw the bank guarantee given to the bank as per your wish .
2) if principal debtor is willing to give bank guarantee of another person bank may agree to release you as guarantor
3) in your case principal debtor is a defaulter and hence it not possible
The guarantee cannot be withdrawn at this stage. You can repay the entire loan amount by negotiating with the bank for OTS and recover the same from the borrower through legal process.
1.The matter can be closed only if the Borrower pays of the dues, or
2. Substitute your guarantee with some other guarantee acceptable to the Bank.
