The limits of characteristics that an AGM can and cannot have are set by the Landlords and Tenants Act 1995. An AGM may ask the outgoing tenant to take over the lease or to resume a new lease for the remainder of the lease if the assignee goes bankrupt or goes into liquidation. However, an AGM must not include an obligation for the outgoing tenant to carry out an obligation of a person other than the assignee. An AGM is an agreement that requires an outgoing tenant to guarantee the performance by the new tenant or “agent” of the tenant contracts included in the tenancy agreement. The question was how a guarantee could guarantee the obligations of an outgoing tenant in an approved warranty contract (AGM) without violating the Landlords and Tenants Act (Covenants) Act 1995. If this were not the case, a condition would have imposed obligations on the tenant`s deposit, equivalent to those that Section 24 LTCA wanted to release in 1995, the order of the legislation. Good Harvest has given rise to a direct guarantee of an incoming tenant`s deposit that is not applicable to an incoming assignee. In the end, Coop`s general meeting was maintained as an enforceable partial guarantee solely on the basis of a transfer licence provision in that complaint.

An approved warranty agreement (also called AGM) is a document that a landlord can ask the existing tenant (the real estate agent) to sign during a rental contract to ensure the position of the landlord if the incoming tenant (the broker) does not comply with the terms of the tenancy agreement.
The broker signs an authorized warranty agreement with the lessor to ensure the broker`s performance of the lease obligations. In other words, the outgoing tenant may be required to hold a general meeting to ensure the execution by the assignee of tenant alliances in the tenancy agreement. According to the Court`s case law, it is established that the surety of an outgoing tenant can guarantee the performance of his obligations under the general meeting as a sub-guarantee. A general meeting is an agreement that requires an outgoing tenant to guarantee the benefit of the new tenant or “agent” of the tenancy agreements included in the tenancy agreement. The Landlords and Tenants Act came into force on January 1, 1996. The law abolished the “no contract” – the relationship between the parties in a contract that allows them to sue each other, but prevents a third party from doing so – for all new commercial leases, whereas, in certain circumstances, an outgoing tenant may be obliged to guarantee his immediate assignee. When a tenant enters into a lease with a new tenant (delegate), the lessor may require the tenant to enter into an AGM with the landlord as a condition of consent to the assignment of the tenancy agreement. An AGM is a form of guarantee that the tenant (outgoing) gives to the lessor that if the assignee does not fulfill the obligations of the lease, such as the payment of rent, repair of the property, etc., the outgoing tenant will do so. In other words, the outgoing tenant becomes the guarantor of the agent.
The law did not change the subletting rules, but it did mean that the parties could enter into an agreement with any commercial lease agreement, usually expressly in the lease agreement, indicating the circumstances under which consent to the assignment may be refused or under conditions under which consent may be given.
