do hereby bind me/ourselves jointly and severally to
its subsidiary companies, successors-in-title and assigns
as Surety and Co-Principal Debtor for the due and punctual payment, performance and discharge by:
_________________________________________________________________________ (Business name)
of the debts and obligations of whatsoever nature arising in any manner from the transactions entered into between the Creditor and the Debtor and any other debts or obligations due and owing by the Debtor to the Creditor arising from whatsoever cause, including but not limited to any judgement debt or other secondary debt (all of which debts and obligations are hereinafter referred to collectively as ‘the obligations’.) As part of our liability in terms hereof we bind ourselves as aforesaid to pay the amount of all charges and expenses of whatsoever nature including, but without derogating from the generality of the aforegoing, interest stamp duties, tracing agents charges, attorney and client legal costs and collection commission incurred by the Creditor in securing or endeavouring to secure fulfilment of the obligations.
The rights of the Creditor under this Suretyship shall not be affected or diminished if the Creditor at any time obtains additional suretyships, guarantees, securities or indemnities in connection with the obligations. This Suretyship shall be an irrevocable continuing covering Suretyship for the debts and obligations aforesaid and in addition to any other security / Suretyship held. Moreover, we shall be bound by all admissions or acknowledgements of indebtedness made or given by the Debtor to the Creditor from time to time and no alteration or variation of any present or future agreement between the Debtor and the Creditor shall in any way release us from our liability hereunder.
The Creditor shall be entitled, without reference or notification to us and without affecting its rights hereunder, to release other sureties and securities, to grant the Debtor extensions of time for payment, and to compound or to make any other arrangements with the Debtor for the discharge of the Debtor’s indebtedness.
If the Debtor is placed in liquidation or under judicial management, whether provisional or final, or submits an offer of compromise or of composition or scheme of arrangement in terms of any Company or Insolvency law, the Creditor shall be entitled to accept any dividend on account and in reduction of the Debtor’s indebtedness without prejudicing its rights against us, which rights shall further not be prejudiced by its acceptance of any other securities, guarantees or suretyships arising out of any such event and we further bind ourselves in any such event not to file any claims against the Debtor, save with the prior written consent of the Creditor.
For as long as the Creditor thinks fit, and at the option and in the sole and absolute discretion of the Creditor, any moneys paid by us to the Creditor hereunder may be treated as cash security to be held by the Creditor until the creditor releases the debtor.
Should the Debtor fail to discharge any of the obligations on due date, the Creditor shall be entitled, notwithstanding any contrary arrangement with the Debtor, to demand immediate performance from us of all the obligations then owing by the Debtor to the Creditor, whether the due date for the performance of the obligations has arrived or not.
In respect of all contracts entered into by the Debtor with the Creditor, we warrant that each of such contracts will be at the time of execution or formation within the scope, authority and powers and objects of the Debtor, and that all resolutions of and signatures by directors of the Debtors were or, in the case of future contracts, will be properly and with due authority passed, executed and made.

For the purpose of any action against us for provisional sentence or summary judgement, a certificate under the signature of any director or the secretary of the Company (neither of whose authority it shall be necessary to prove) as to the amount owing by the Debtor to the Creditor and of the fact that the due date for the discharge of the obligations and / or our obligations hereunder has arrived shall be sufficient and satisfactory proof of the facts therein stated unless and until the contrary has been proved.
In terms of section 45 of the Magistrates’ Court Act of 1994, we hereby consent to the jurisdiction of the Magistrates’ Court having jurisdiction in terms of section 28 of the said Act in respect of any action to be instituted against me by the Creditor in terms hereof. It shall nevertheless be entirely within the discretion of the Creditor as to whether to proceed against us in such Magistrates’ Court or any other Court having jurisdiction.
We hereby expressly renounce the benefits of the legal exceptions of “order”, “execution”, “division”, “cession of action” and all or any exceptions which could or might be pleaded to any claim by the Creditor against us in terms hereof, the meaning, force and effect of all of which exceptions we declare ourselves to be fully acquainted with.
Prescription shall, in respect of any claim which the Creditor may have hereunder, only commence to run from the date upon which the Creditor make formal written demand on me / us for the satisfaction of any claim arising hereunder, provided that such written demand is made within three years from the date when prescription would otherwise, but for the provisions of this clause, have commenced to run. Any interruption of prescription whether by the Debtor or by process of law shall constitute an interruption of prescription against me / us.
I / We waive presentment, notice of dishonour and protest in respect of any negotiable instrument made,
drawn, accepted, endorsed, signed as aval, surety or co-principal debtor or signed in any other capacity by the Debtor or me / us.
