It is essential that financial documents are executed correctly during each banking transaction. You may have negotiated a large amount of documents, but if you don`t get them signed correctly, they will be of low value to the parties in practice. There are different rules for each type of document and per type of person. Unlike ordinary agreements, for example, documents exported by natural persons must generally be testified, a condition imposed by law rather than customary law (a point recently mentioned in Brown v Tavern Operatory Pty Ltd  NSWSC 1290). In addition, all acts take effect only if they are delivered (a legal concept that focuses on when a party wants to be bound by an act) and not simply performed. Although consideration is not necessarily necessary when a commitment is included in a deed, it is still customary for at least one nominal amount of the consideration to be included in the deed. This is due to the rule that own funds do not help a volunteer. The effect of this rule is to exclude the use of appropriate remedies, such as a particular benefit, if a promise received is not taken into account. A nominal consideration may be accompanied by a name stating that “Party A agrees to pay the amount of $10 in Part B”.
Enforcement requirements vary depending on the type of document to be signed. You may have a contract with a number of different companies and different documents may be included in the transaction. There are steps we always take at Francis Wilks & Jones to ensure that the credit agreement is executed correctly. Powers may be required if all parties cannot be present at the signing of the loan agreement. Credentials must be testified as deeds and confer on another party the right to intervene and sign on behalf of the party who is not present.. . .
