Personal Guaranty If the tenant’s business is not credible then the landlord should consider having the tenant sign a Personal Guaranty which binds the owner of the Company to the lease. So if the tenant defaults the individual’s assets would be liable, not just the business. Step 9 – Determine the Security Deposit Once the tenant has been approved by the landlord the Security Deposit should be made known to the tenant. In residential real estate, there are State Laws that limit how much a landlord may ask from the tenant. In commercial real estate, there are no limits to how much the landlord would like to charge the tenant. The landlord will commonly ask between 2-3 months rent in case the tenant stops paying the monthly rent or to safeguard against any damage that the tenant may cause during their time on the property. Step 10 – Write the Commercial Lease Agreement Use an attorney or draft the lease yourself. Make sure to gather all the information about the property and the tenant and enter into the agreement. Once completed, the document should be signed with the tenant and landlord in the presence of a notary public. This way the signatures are proven and the agreement is much more likely to hold up in court if its legality is ever questioned. Step 11 – Taking Occupancy After the security deposit has cleared and the lease has been signed the tenant should take occupancy. This means that the tenant can begin using the space as directed for use in the lease. Both parties will be held accountable for their specified duties until the end of the lease term. Estoppel Certificate – May be requested by the landlord after lease signing to certify a lease exists between the tenant and landlord. Required Clauses American’s with Disability Act (42 U.S. Code § 12183) – Also known as the ‘ADA’, requires that any commercial tenants which offer “public accommodation” (such as a restaurant, retail store, etc.) or have at least fifteen (15) employees adhere to all handicap access rules. This rule is only grandfathered to properties that have not been built or had renovations since 1992. Per 42 U.S. Code § 12183 if the Lessee is using the Premises as a public accommodation (e.g. restaurants, shopping centers, office buildings) or there are more than 15 employees the Premises must provide accommodations and access to persons with disabilities that is equal or similar to that available to the general public. Owners, operators, lessors, and lessees of commercial properties are all responsible for ADA compliance. If the Premises is not in compliance with the Americans with Disability Act any modifications or construction will be the responsibility of the Lessor. Hazard Waste (42 U.S. Code § 6901) – Forces the tenant to sign in writing that they will adhere to any federal, State, or local laws in regards to the disposal of hazardous wastes. “Shall mean any and all federal, state, or local laws, ordinances, rules, decrees, orders, regulations, or court decisions relating to hazardous substances, hazardous materials, hazardous waste, toxic substances, environmental conditions on, under, or about the Premises, the Building, or the Property, or soil and ground water conditions, including, but not limited to, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, any other law or legal requirement concerning hazardous or toxic substances, and any amendments to the foregoing.” Other Lease Terms In addition, there may be other areas of the lease, outside of the monthly rent, that the parties may want to negotiate such as: Option to Renew – Use if the tenant would like to have the option to stay in the property for a longer time then they may request an ‘Option to Renew’ the lease. This gives them the right to extend the lease for a specified rental price if they want. Option to Purchase – Use if the tenant would like the option to purchase the property for a specified price during the course of their lease. First (1st)
PERSONAL GUARANTEE It is expressly agreed by the parties to this lease that the Lessor has the option, in its sole discretion, to require or dispense with the co- signature of a parent/guarantor or other co-signed and in the event such a co- signature is not required, the lack thereof shall not affect the validity or enforceability of this lease.
Personal Guarantees The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the Executive for any liability incurred by him/her by reason of his/her execution of any personal guarantee for the Company’s benefit (including but not limited to personal guarantees in connection with office or equipment leases, commercial loans or promissory notes).
Additional Guarantors Each Subsidiary of Holdings that is required to become a party to this Guarantee pursuant to Section 9.11 of the Credit Agreement shall become a Guarantor, with the same force and effect as if originally named as a Guarantor herein, for all purposes of this Guarantee, upon execution and delivery by such Subsidiary of a written supplement substantially in the form of Annex A hereto (each such written supplement, a “Guarantor Supplement”). The execution and delivery of any instrument adding an additional Guarantor as a party to this Guarantee shall not require the consent of any other Guarantor hereunder. The rights and obligations of each Guarantor hereunder shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the addition of any new Guarantor as a party to this Guarantee.
Additional Guarantees This Agreement shall be in addition to any other guarantee or other security for the Guaranteed Obligations and it shall not be prejudiced or rendered unenforceable by the invalidity of any such other guarantee or security or by any waiver, amendment, release or modification thereof.
Additional Guaranties The Company will from time to time cause each Domestic Subsidiary thereof which has not previously done so to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent duly executed supplements and amendments to the Guaranty, in each case, in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. In the event that there shall be a change in law that eliminates the adverse tax consequences to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries that would have resulted on the date hereof (so that such consequences, if any, are immaterial) from the guaranty by any Foreign Subsidiary of the Payment Obligations, the Company will cause each of its Foreign Subsidiaries to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent duly executed supplements and amendments to the Guaranty, in each case, in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. Each such supplement or amendment shall be accompanied by such resolutions, incumbency certificates and legal opinions as are reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent and are in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
Additional Guarantor Each additional Subsidiary of the Borrower which becomes a Subsidiary Guarantor pursuant to §5.4.
Additional Guarantors and Grantors Subject to any applicable limitations set forth in the Security Documents, the Borrower will cause each direct or indirect Domestic Subsidiary (excluding any Excluded Subsidiary) formed or otherwise purchased or acquired after the Original Closing Date (including pursuant to a Permitted Acquisition) and each other Domestic Subsidiary that ceases to constitute an Excluded Subsidiary to, within 30 days from the date of such formation, acquisition or cessation, as applicable (or such longer period as the Administrative Agent may agree in its reasonable discretion), and Borrower may at its option cause any Subsidiary to, execute a supplement to each of the Guarantee, the Pledge Agreement and the Security Agreement in order to become a Guarantor under the Guarantee and a grantor under such Security Documents or, to the extent reasonably requested by the Collateral Agent, enter into a new Security Document substantially consistent with the analogous existing Security Documents and otherwise in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Collateral Agent and take all other action reasonably requested by the Collateral Agent to grant a perfected security interest in its assets to substantially the same extent as created by the Credit Parties on the Original Closing Date (including, without limitation, in the case of a Foreign Subsidiary causing such Foreign Subsidiary to execute guarantees and security agreements compatible with the laws of such Foreign Subsidiary’s jurisdiction in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Collateral Agent). Notwithstanding anything in any Credit Document to the contrary, as of the 2014 July Repricing Effective Date: (i) FDR Limited, Money Network Financial, LLC and TeleCheck Services, Inc. are each released as Guarantors under the Credit Documents, (ii) FDR Limited shall be deemed a Foreign Subsidiary for purposes of any requirement relating to the pledge of Equity Interests in FDR Limited and (iii) unless the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent otherwise prior to the time such release would apply, any Guarantor shall be automatically cease to be a Guarantor under the Credit Documents and in such capacity will be automatically released from the Guarantees (and for the avoidance of doubt each other Security Document) to the extent such Guarantor ceases to be a wholly-owned Domestic Subsidiary of the Borrower and the value of such Guarantor at such time (when aggregated with the value (at the time of release) of all prior Guarantors that have ceased to be Guarantors pursuant to this clause (iii)), does not exceed (a) 10% of Consolidated EBITDA as of the most recently ended Test Period plus (b) the amount of Investments that would be permitted to be made pursuant to Section 10.5 (other than clause (g)(i)(c) thereto) with respect to such Subsidiary (as such Subsidiary exists after ceasing to be a Guarantor), it being understood such usage shall reduce the amounts that would otherwise available for such Investments. It is understood and agreed that this paragraph does not authorize the release of all or substantially all of the Guarantors under the Guarantees or the release of all or substantially all of the Collateral under the Security Documents.
Joinder of Additional Guarantors The Pledgors shall cause each Subsidiary which, from time to time after the date hereof, shall be required to become a Pledgor and pledge any assets to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties pursuant to Section 5.10 of the Credit Agreement, to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent a Joinder Agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit 2 hereto in accordance with the terms of Section 5.10 of the Credit Agreement and, upon such execution and delivery, such Subsidiary shall constitute a “Guarantor” and a “Pledgor” for all purposes hereunder with the same force and effect as if originally named as a Guarantor and a Pledgor herein. The rights and obligations of each Pledgor hereunder shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding the addition of any new Guarantor and Pledgor as a party to this Agreement.
Unconditional Guaranty The Company hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees the punctual payment when due, whether at scheduled maturity or on any date of a required prepayment or by acceleration, demand or otherwise, of all obligations of each Designated Subsidiary now or hereafter existing under or in respect of this Agreement and the Notes (including, without limitation, any extensions, modifications, substitutions, amendments or renewals of any or all of the foregoing obligations), whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, and whether for principal, interest, premiums, fees, indemnities, contract causes of action, costs, expenses or otherwise (such obligations being the “Guaranteed Obligations”), and agrees to pay any and all expenses (including, without limitation, fees and expenses of outside counsel) incurred by the Agent or any Lender in enforcing any rights under this Article VII. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company’s liability shall extend to all amounts that constitute part of the Guaranteed Obligations and would be owed by such Designated Subsidiary to the Agent or any Lender under or in respect of this Agreement and the Notes but for the fact that they are unenforceable or not allowable due to the existence of a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding involving such Designated Subsidiary.
