Abstract

This article explores some of the rules governing the liability of joint tenants and their guarantors for rent under a lease. Where a lease is granted to more than one person, it may be important to decide whether they are liable to the landlord individually or collectively for the rent. Moreover, if a guarantor is made a party to the lease, is he guaranteeing the liability of just one or all the tenants named in the lease? If the guarantor discharges the liability to pay rent to the landlord, can he recover the amount from the defaulting tenant(s)? Finally, does the guarantor have a right of subrogation in these circumstances?
