In the case of certain classes of agents, such as solicitors, the law requires a qualification before they can act1. Enforcement agents taking control of goods are required to have a certificate from a County Court judge before they may act2.
No person who is contracting as a principal can act as agent to the other party to the contract for the purpose of signing a note or memorandum thereof so as to satisfy the provisions of the Statute of Frauds
