If it is the intention of the parties that the bank guarantee should be ‘as good as cash’ then there should be no limits or preconditions included in the express contract terms regarding the principal’s recourse to it. If that’s the case, the principal’s entitlement to cash the guarantee won’t be subject to it establishing some form of entitlement under the contract to do so.

The debtor is typically the guarantor’s company. A guarantee can be an obligation either to pay the liabilities of the company or to ensure that the company performs its obligations to the lender. A guarantee is therefore essentially a contract and in particular a contract of ‘suretyship’. A contract of guarantee pre-supposes the existence of a liability, which is enforceable at law. If no such liability exists, there can be no contract of guarantee. Thus, where the debt, which is sought to be guaranteed is already time barred or void, the surety is not liable.
