|BCCI SA v. Aboody|
|Court||Court of Appeal|
|Full case name||Bank of Credit and Commerce International Société Anonyme v. Aboody and another|
|Citation(s)|| 4 All ER 955|
Mrs. Aboody signed a document making a charge over the family home in favour of Bank of Credit and Commerce International, to secure her husband’s borrowing for his company. Mr. Aboody had bullied her, and she had signed to get some peace.
Slade LJ held that because of National Westminster Bank plc v Morgan  UKHL 2 "manifest disadvantage" had to be shown even in cases of actual undue influence. The transaction was not manifestly disadvantageous, but this requirement was subsequently overruled in CIBC Mortgages plc v Pitt  UKHL 7 (21 October 1993).
