Read the Case Study below before undertaking the exercises which follow:
John Smith and Mark Edwards have been living together for four years. John is a successful lawyer in a large city firm and Mark is an aspiring writer who has yet to find a publisher for his first novel. They live in John’s three bedroom townhouse at 33, Acorn Avenue, Langley, RX23 4SR, and Mark takes care of the house and cooks all their meals.
At a recent party, John met Ian, with whom he has fallen in love, and they plan to marry. When John told Mark of his plans, he told Mark that he, Mark, would have to leave the house and find another home.
Mark has nowhere else to live and has very limited funds. He refused to leave the house and since then John has made life there very unpleasant for him. He has frequently criticised Mark’s cooking skills and his inability to find a publisher in front of their friends and last week he threw a bowl of pasta at Mark, narrowly missing Mark but breaking a kitchen window.
Last night John came home late, drunk. He took a carving knife out of a drawer in the kitchen, held it against Mark’s neck and told him that if he had not moved out by the next day, he, John, would not be responsible for his actions.
Mark is terrified of what John might do but he wants to continue to live in the house because of his circumstances and as it is close to the hospice where his terminally ill father is living.

2- Company Law on Registration of a company.
In 2009, Sirius Pink purchased a large, disused school for £300,000. He now intends to convert the property into a nursing home, which he will then manage. Sirius will need substantial capital in order to pursue his plans, and his cousins, Petunia White and Dumbledore Old, have indicated that they are willing to join the business and help him run the nursing home. Hermione Yellow, a retired housewife, is also willing to invest £100,000 in non – voting preference shares in the company. Hermione is insisting that she be given the right to remain a director for as long as she is a shareholder, so that she can `keep an eye on her investment’.
The following additional information has been provided:
– A shelf company, JLIT Shelf Company 06897 Limited (fictitious) will be used as the vehicle for the new business.
– The company’s name will be changed to Rest Care Ltd.
– The company will have an issued share capital of £150,000, comprising 150,000 fully paid ordinary shares of £1 each.
– Sirius, Petunia and Dumbledore will all invest £50,000 in exchange for 50,000 ordinary shares at £1 each.
– The company will adopt the Model Articles for private companies limited by shares.
