However, the Scottish enforcement rules (also as amended) differ in some respects from those of English law and it will therefore continue to be important to review the formalities and enforcement clauses in relation to the requirements of Scots law. These are the only forms of signature available for certified writings. If a signature matches either option, no verification clause is required to indicate that the grantor signs “its usual signature”. If a person signs a deed in two or more functions specified in the deed, such as X as trustee and as an individual, they only need to sign the deed once. A letter issued on or after 1 August 1995 is formally valid, provided that it is signed by the grantor or, if there is more than one licensor, by all the grantors. This applies, subject to the exception set out below, to acts of trustees executed by only a majority of them. Caution should be exercised when a corporation acts as corporate secretary or signing officer of another corporation. In these circumstances, authentication requirements must be met with respect to both companies. The following examples are acceptable because (1) there is a witness who is designated as a witness and there is a designation (address given) and (2) because any potential capability or office specified for the corporate signatory certainly falls within the acceptable variations explained above. The act shall indicate on the front that the signatory holds one or more of the relevant functions and that, consequently, the instrument meets the required requirements. These persons are authorized to sign documents on behalf of the company for which they are appointed.
An instrument signed by an insolvency practitioner, administrator or liquidator is formally valid if it is signed by the insolvency practitioner, administrator or liquidator, but its signature must also be proven by itself to meet the requirements of the 2012 Act and enforcement must be accompanied by a witness. The lawyer does not need to be drafted in the test clause. However, they must be named, either in the test clause or next to their signature. (If the part has not already been mentioned in the deed, a signature is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of section 7(2) of the Writing Requirements Act 1995 (Scotland).)

(2) When the term “witness” is proposed as an option to one or even both signatories and the official is therefore unable to say whether the conditions are met. It is rare, but it has happened in practice. In accordance with Article 21(2) of the 2012 Law, the registrable document must meet the requirements of formal validity and self-certification, where applicable, at the time of the application for registration. If a recordable document does not meet the requirements, the application for registration must be rejected: it is not possible to modify the recordable document while the application is pending.
The application must be cancelled (or rejected if it has not reached the application record) and the recordable document must be returned so that the applicant can correct their application before resubmitting it. a law reforming Scots law with regard to the requirement of written form for certain matters and the formal validity of contractual and other documents and presumptions relating thereto; abolish any rule of law that limits the evidence of a case to a request or oath and abolish the procedure for reference to oaths; and related purposes. Some formalities can be resolved by filing an application with the court. Thus, the absence of a witness` signature can be corrected and the document can be established by the court as personal evidence. On request, the court may request that the document be accompanied by a certificate attesting that it is satisfied that the document was signed by the grantor and that the document is subsequently accepted for inclusion. Deficiencies, such as the absence of a date or place of signature, can be corrected in the same way, although they are not formal requirements under the law. A document so certified is in the same situation as if the execution formalities had been completed at the right time, i.e. the same presumptions apply.
