I mistakenly filled in a credit application for Screwfix in 2013 for a trade account (for a company I used to work at).
This company has recently gone into administration and I have been sought after to settle the outstanding amount (nearly £1000)
- as apparently the credit application doubled up as a "personal guarantee".
Their credit app was not clear to me & it was blurred out and photocopied on a number of occasions. (yes I know I shouldn't have signed something I couldn't read) In addition I resigned and left the company in 2014.
How can two different legal entities sign a credit app (as director) but also as personal (for a guarantee - without it being made clear?
