Statutory demand signature requirements

Correct statutory demand signature is very important. A statutory demand must be signed and dated by either the creditor itself or someone else authorised to act on the creditor’s behalf (more ordinarily, a legal representative).

In reality this means someone physically signing the statutory demand before it is given to a process server for service. Whilst the current rules relating to statutory demands do not rule out the use of electronic service and therefore electronic signatures of statutory demands, it is common practice to always ensure that the statutory demand is signed physically before being handed to a process server for service.

Insolvency Rule 10.1(5)—(1)  A statutory demand under section 268 must be dated, and be signed either by the creditor himself or by a person stating himself to be authorised to make the demand on the creditor's behalf.
