EFIS 1, January 2010 : Conveyancing

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

Section 44 of the Companies Act 2006 provides that a company may execute a document in one of three ways.

These methods of attestation include fixing a common seal to the document, by the signature of two “authorised signatories” or a new option where the signature of a single director in the presence of a witness is sufficient to bind a company.

Since companies are no longer required to appoint a company secretary, it is possible that companies may only have one director to sign a document on its behalf.

CON40G has therefore been amended to enable a sole director to sign CON40G in the presence of a witness.

However, where companies prefer two directors to sign a document for “quality control” purposes or to affix the company’s seal we have provided you with an alternative form which is numbered CON40H.

Please also find enclosed the LLC1 and LRCT1-Flexi which have received minor amendments.

All forms can be used immediately.

LLC1 Requisition for search and official certificate of search New/Amended
