  • What information do you have concerning the execution of guarantees by trustees?

For the purposes of this Q&A it is assumed that:

  1. the trust in question is a private trust governed by English law, of which all the trustees are individuals

  2. it is not a charitable trust, and

  3. the provision of the contemplated guarantee by the trustees is authorised either by the terms of the trust or by statute

A guarantee can be executed as a deed or under hand, but there may be certain advantages to executing it as a deed. See Q&A: Does a guarantee have to be executed as a deed?
