GE sought to enforce a clause in a guarantee worded as follows:
The guarantor shall grant to GE a legal mortgage in registrable form of any land held by the guarantor now or in the future, which mortgage must secure the amounts referred to in clause 7.1(a);
Sadly for GE there was no clause 7.1(a) in their guarantee. The clause was accordingly held unenforceable and void for lack of certainty.
