Prescribed Information and Ltd Companies?Make Text Bigger
Bali v Manaquel Company Limited (County Court at Central London (HHJ Hand QC), 15th April 2016.
This to give people a heads up as many will get caught out when they let through ltd companies trying to escape s24.
A tenant was successful against the landlord’s claim for possession, because the Prescribed Information was not executed in accordance with section 44 of the Companies Act 2006. Section 44 written as below:
“A document is validly executed by a company if it is signed on behalf of the company
- by two authorised signatories, or
- by a director of the company in the presence of a witness who attests the signature”
Company landlords must now ensure the prescribed information is executed correctly although the Deregulation Act 2015 permits an agent to sign on its behalf.
