Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Can I just check, why has your partner been chosen to sign the deed? and how long has he worked there for?
OK I understand and thank you for providing this information. Please do not worry and leave it with me for now; I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. He should certainly not sign anything which he knows is untrue or misleading. The reason is that the new lessee may try and hold him personally liable for the statements he has made by agreeing to that and attaching his signature to it. If there are untruths within that statement, let the current employer take full liability for these by signing it themselves or finding someone else to do it. It is not worth the risk in the circumstances.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
