In Brief - Signatures of Directors Mean Document Executed

09 September 2011

A purchaser that had second thoughts about buying a property from a company and sought to avoid the contract for sale, because the document was neither sealed with the company seal nor signed ‘by or on behalf of’ the company, was given short shrift by the Court of Appeal.

The Court considered that if the contract defined the ‘seller’ as the company, it would be absurd not to regard the signatures of the directors at the end of the document as meaning the document was executed by the company.
