What is an Agreement for a Simple Surety?

A surety agreement is a contract in which a person or an organization agrees to guarantee the repayment of a loan taken out by another person or organization. The agreement is made between the guarantor, who is not the same person as the borrower, and the lender. It’s important to note that there are separate arrangements in place between the guarantor and the borrower.

In contrast to a joint surety, a lender cannot enforce a simple surety just because the borrower is in default or has been unsuccessfully admonished. Instead, the lender can only pursue the guarantor in specific circumstances, which essentially means that the borrower will not repay the loan.

If the guarantor is a private person, there are additional requirements for the surety amount, in particular, if the guarantee is more than CHF 2,000. Additionally, if the guarantor is married or has a registered partner, their spouse or partner must give their consent in writing.
