Selling R5 airtime for R6

Q: At my work place we sell airtime from machines. But like the standard one it will print out price of R5.

Bank requires the lessor to sign and agree to the following conditions in order to approve the loan

Q: Suppose we have the following scenario, a person owns a business, and is the landlord at the same time. He decides to sell the business and lease out the commercial property to the same person. The bank is loaning the buyer the money to purchase the property. The bank requests that the seller of the business (who is also the landlord) signs a document with the following conditions: 

The conditions are that if the purchaser of the business defaults, then the bank has the right to take over the lease (in other words, they will continue to pay the landlord rent until they find someone to purchase the business off them). 

Does this arrangement constitute riba to the landlord / business seller? Without the signing of this document the buyer cannot loan money from the bank, so does this mean the seller is helping the buyer attain riba and is accountable for this?
