Zurich Insurance plc v Nightscene Ltd

Guarantee – Enforcement. The claimant was entitled to judgment against the defendant, under a guarantee, in respect of a developer's failure to meet its obligations to remedy its defective work on a new-build house. The County Court rejected the defendant's application for summary judgment, seeking a dismissal of the claim on the basis that there was no deed of guarantee, as it had not been executed as a deed, and any contractual liability had to be statute-barred.
