In reference to the case scenario FF Co is liable to both the banks who sanctioned loans. Moreover, FF Co has infringed the loan terms for both the banks as under the condition of the loan agreement which has been infringed by FF Co. it was not allowed to divest itself of assets overhead £500,000 and was not ascribe other assets held by the business except with the assent of Citi-Tower Bank and later the infringement of payments to Principal Bank.
