Ask Your Own UK Law Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
A standard warranty/ies in relation to performance of obligations under the contract, all information given is true and correct, no threatened or outstanding disputes etc
Can a building society give such warranties ?
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Are you able to answer the question ? No problem if not but you might let me know. Thanks

What contract?
Who is performing it?
Why is the institution guaranteeing performance?
In principle there's no reason why a building society can't give a warranty. A bank is governed by statute and its Articles of Association. A building society is governed by statute and its Rules.
