Backdating deeds sophos not updating mac
(Jason Mark Anderman illustrates the logistics problem well in this comment to a backdating post on Ken Adams’s blog.) There’s nothing inherently illegal or unethical about backdating contracts, although backdating can certainly be both unethical and illegal, depending on the situation.
For those with an hour to kill thinking about the issues, Jeffrey Kwall and Stuart Duhl wrote an excellent article on backdating that was published in Business Lawyer in 2008.
Thus, the FDIC and Weatherford could have made their transaction retroactive, but they didn’t document the deal clearly enough to do so.
The appellate court then considered whether, assuming that the FDIC/Weatherford transaction was retroactively effective (which it wasn’t), the retroactivity of that transaction had any legal effect on the transaction between the FDIC and FH Partners.
For a shorter piece with a few practical tips see Backdating – it’s illegal isn’t it?
Setting aside such issues, avoiding unwanted side effects of backdating contracts can be tricky, especially when the purported effective date of an agreement is several months before the date it was actually signed, as can be seen in involves the ownership of a promissory note that was made to a bank in connection with a loan.
In light of that fact, there is no evidence that the FDIC was authorized to unilaterally cure title defects months after closing.” Effectively backdating written agreements so that they’ll be enforceable retroactively can be surprisingly complicated.
This is especially true in the context of a complex deal that includes multiple documents and when the retroactive date is several months in the past.
We cannot conclude, therefore, that in resolving the inconsistency between the FDIC/Weatherford Agreement and the Termination of Participation Agreements, the trial court erroneously relied on these uncontested facts to find “a lack of mutual assent” with respect to a November 7, 2008 effective date.
It’s not unusual for parties to a contract to want the written agreement to cover a period before it’s actually signed.
There are any number of contexts where this comes up — some legitimate and others not exactly aboveboard — but the logistics of negotiating and signing contracts are such that the issue is unavoidable.
The trial court granted the defendants summary judgment, holding that FH Partners didn’t own the loan and so it couldn’t enforce it.
On appeal, the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District agreed.
Backdating is the practice of marking a document, whether a check, contract or another legally binding document, with a date that is before what it should be.
