Royal Mail Estates Ltd v Maples Teesdale

Practice – Summary judgment. The Chancery Division dismissed the defendant's application for summary judgment on the claimant's claim that the defendant had been party to a contract for the sale and purchase of property, which it had signed on behalf of an unregistered company, and had been in repudiatory breach of it, pursuant to s 36C(1) of the Companies Act 1985 (s 36C). Nothing in the contract allowed the defendant to argue that there had been a contrary agreement, pursuant to s 36C of the Act.
