Many lenders are reluctant to enter into agreements that would jeopardize their ability to obtain adequate compensation in the event of a borrower`s late payment. Entrepreneurs seeking financing from multiple sources may find themselves in difficult positions when borrowers need security agreements for their assets. Small businesses, in particular, can only have a small number of real estate or assets that can be used as a credit guarantee guarantee. Under Dutch (Dutch) law, the Dutch civil code designates the guarantee as an agreement by which a third party undertakes a contractual creditor to comply with a debtor`s contractual obligations. Such a guarantee agreement is concluded between the surety company and the creditor. The debtor of the guaranteed commitment is not required to participate in such an agreement. It is even possible that such a guarantee agreement will be concluded without the debtor`s knowledge or agreement. Article 7:850 of the Dutch Civil Code is established: 1. A guarantee agreement is an agreement under which one of the parties (hereafter referred to as the guarantee) has committed to the other party (the « creditor ») to fulfil an obligation that a third party (the principal debtor) has owed or returned to the creditor. 2.
For the validity of a guarantee agreement, it is not necessary for the principal debtor to know the existence of the guarantee in question. 3. The legal provisions relating to joint and several bonds apply to a bonding contract, as long as the provisions of this security do not deviate from it. With regard to the nature of the commitment guaranteed by a guarantee agreement under Dutch law, Article 7:854 of the Dutch Civil Code states that if the principal debtor`s guaranteed commitment relates to a benefit other than the payment of a sum of money, the surety contract is considered a guarantee of the creditor`s claim on the sum of money. which is attributable to the principal debtor if it has not fulfilled its primary obligation to the creditor, unless the surety agreement expressly provides for something else.  These rights and remedies, which are open to a party insured under the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the security in question) or to any other applicable law (including, but not limited, to a law on the exercise of a bank guarantee right153 or to a banker`s pawn tax153) if a debtor is in default under a security agreement.
