Representation of a Guarantor in the dispute over the enforceability of the Guaranty of a loan to an RV Dealer. The Recitals had expressly limited to Guaranty to a fixed amount and the lender knew our client had sold 100% of the shares of the dealership to an individual who had assumed all obligations under the loan. Our client’s counsel, at the time of the sale of his interest, neglected to get the release of the Guaranty. Additionally, the loan had been paid in full and then the new owner had borrowed under the same documents. We looked at the factual issues, the lender’s conduct of not giving our client notice of the sale of the collateral upon the default on the second loan and the obligations of a surety under Ca. law.
