120.This and the following two sections are concerned with the second (and final) stage of the termination procedure, namely the execution and registration of the notice of termination.

121.Section 22 deals with execution.

In the normal case this must be done by the terminator personally, but subsection (2) sets out some exceptions. Subsection (2)(b) should be read with schedule 2 to the Requirements of Writing (Scotland) Act 1995, which identifies who may sign on behalf of companies and other juristic persons. ‘Notary public’ is given an extended meaning, in relation to overseas execution, by section 122(1).
