I have incorporated an LLP and written a licence agreement. Does someone have to witness the signitures of the 2 partners?
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

This month I have posed many questions without answers.

I can only apologise.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
Thank you for your patience,
An agreement is perfectly legal it is simply signed. It does not have to have witnesses.For example, the contract agreement to purchase a house is not witnessed. The transfer deed needs to be witnessed because it is a deed and deeds must have 2 witnesses.If a deed is incorrectly witnessed it simply takes effect as an agreement and not a deed.The difference between an agreement plain agreement and an agreement as a deed is that the limitation period on an agreement is 6 years but 12 years for a deed. That is one of the reasons that mortgages are always done by deed. It is a provision of the Law of Property Act 1925 that transfers of property are done by deed.Although the kind of licence agreement you refer to would normally be done by a deed and witnessed, there is no legal reason why must be. The other reason for having a witness to a thing is so that neither of the parties can say that they did not sign.Can I clarify anything for you?Please do not forget to rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get credited.Best wishesFES
