Briggs and others v Gleeds (Head Office) and others [2014] EWHC 1178 (Ch); [2014] WLR (D) 174

‘A representation of law could found an estoppel by representation. Estoppel could not be invoked where a document did not even appear to comply with the requirements of section 1(3) of the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989 on its face or where a document needed to be executed by partners and was stated to be signed, sealed and delivered by each partner but none of those signatures were witnessed. Accordingly members of a pension scheme were not estopped from denying that defective deeds were validly executed.’
