Topic:

ABC Pty Ltd is situated in
Australia. It has three directors: David,
Sarah and Chen. David had signed a
mortgage and guarantee in favour of Easyloan Bank Ltd on behalf of ABC Pty
Ltd. The guarantee secured a personal
loan made by Easyloan Bank Ltd to David. The mortgage was over ABC Pty Ltd’s
land in Ballarat. Both documents were signed by David and appeared to have been
signed by Sarah. However, David had
forged Sarah’s signatures on the documents and Sarah was completely unaware of
the transaction.

ABC Pty Ltd’s constitution
provided that such loan agreements could only be executed if authorized by directors’
resolution. No such resolution had
occurred, and indeed neither Sarah nor Chen knew about the mortgage and
guarantee.

Easyloan Bank Ltd had not
undertaken searches to determine whether David and Sarah were directors of ABC
Pty Ltd prior to accepting the mortgage and guarantee as security and making
the loan to David.

David has failed to repay
the loan and has now left Australia. Easyloan
Bank Ltd is attempting to enforce the guarantee and mortgage against ABC Pty
Ltd.

Required:

(a) Discuss whether Easyloan Bank Ltd can enforce the
guarantee and mortgage (contracts) against ABC Pty Ltd. You should support your
answer with reference to relevant sections of the Corporations Act 2001 and to relevant cases. (20 marks)

(b) Would your answer to
question (a) above be different if ABC were the partnership firm of David,
Sarah and Chen? Justify your answer. (10 marks)
