Yes sir. If the creditor is unable to recover from the principal borrower and / or other co-borrowers then yes creditor - bank can come after the guarantor. If guarantor is unable to pay then they can auction off guarantor's property - in this case your dad's property.

You will have to challenge the notices sent by the bank or by the appropriate court of law. You need to provide me the details of your case and documents. After going through the documents then suitable advice can be given to you.
