The range of different types of guaranties and the particular circumstances which trigger guaranty liability are extremely varied. For example, there are guaranties of payment, guaranties of collection and “bad boy” guaranties which import guaranty liability into nonrecourse lending situations if certain acts are committed (i.e. a voluntary chapter 11 filing by the borrower) or conditions are permitted to arise (i.e. waste or environmental contamination).
Guaranties are not self-executing and often are not collateralized. Any commercial lender or other holder of a guaranty will normally find itself having to vigorously take the offensive to collect upon a guaranty. Filing suit and obtaining a judgment are often only the first steps towards collecting upon a guaranty. Asset protection strategies and statutory limitations with regard to limiting creditors to the charging order remedy when collection against membership interests in limited liability companies can pose serious roadblocks and challenges to guaranty judgment collection.
