Incorrect execution can lead to documents being invalid or unenforceable. Ensure that you are following the correct procedures with this fully updated and revised second edition of Execution of Documents.

Practical and user-friendly, this guide covers documents such as deeds, contracts, powers of attorney, and documents used in litigation. This expanded edition now features a chapter dealing with notarisation and also covers new methods of signing documents including the use of electronic signatures. The new edition takes account of changes made by:-

  • The Regulatory Reform (Execution of Deeds and Documents) Order 2005 – introducing new rules for making deeds for companies and other corporations
  • Part 4 of the Companies Act 2006 – creating new provisions relating to the execution of deeds and other documents by companies and the use of the company seal
  • The 2006 High Court decision in J Pereira Fernandes SA v Metha – which decided that an email which does not include the name of the sender typed into the body of text does not constitute a signed document.
