In Re Conley: CA 1938

A loan had been made, secure by a deposit by a third party. The company was said to have repaid the secured overdraft to secure the release of the deposit and its release from the hands of the general creditors. The court was asked whether the person providing the security had acted as a ‘surety or guarantor’ within section 44 of the 1914 Act. The depositor argued that since a bare deposit had not created a personal liability, she could not be a surety.
Held: She could be so treated under the Act.
