    3. The Tenant agrees to refund to the Landlord any Housing Benefit overpayment recovery which the Local Authority seeks from the Landlord in respect of this tenancy, either before or after the Tenant has vacated the Property where this creates a shortfall in the money owed to the Landlord.
  8. Guarantor
    1. In consideration for the Landlord granting the Tenant a tenancy of the Property, the Guarantor agrees to pay the Landlord and the Landlord’s Agent for any reasonable losses suffered as a result of the Tenant whom he is the guarantor for, failing to fulfil any of his obligations under this agreement or failing to pay Rents or other monies lawfully due.

    3. The Guarantor agrees to make payments lawfully due under clause 8.1 or 8.2 even after the Tenant has returned possession of the Property to the Landlord.
    4. If this contract is a “distance contract” as defined in the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, then, subject to the required information having been provided to the Guarantor, the 7 day “right to cancel” will cease immediately the provision of the service commences, in accordance with regulation 13(1)(a) of the above regulations.
