(2)A member of a building society may bring proceedings to restrain the doing of an act which but for sub-paragraph (1) above would be beyond the society’s capacity; but no such proceedings shall lie in respect of an act to be done in fulfilment of a legal obligation arising from a previous act of the society.

(6)Nor does that sub-paragraph affect any liability incurred by the directors, or any other person, by reason of the directors’ exceeding their powers.

No duty to enquire as to capacity of society etc.E+W+S+N.I.
