In the event that the limitation for general damages is not present or, if it is present but found to be unenforceable the overall limited of liability should cap the organisations liability. Most organisations will have a policy whereby the Contractors overall liability, to the Company, for breach of contract should always be limited in some way. This can be expressed as a percentage of the contract value (in this case the contract value should be clearly defined if possible) or as a specific sum of money. Limitation of liability clauses and exclusion of liability clauses are often difficult to enforce as the courts in many jurisdictions do not encourage parties to a contract to be allowed to exonerate themselves from their liabilities. In addition to having wording to limit the liability for breach one approach to limit your liability is to ensure that the scope of work and the obligations in the contract are well defined and clear.
In an agreement setting, a mistake is an error in the meaning of words, laws, or facts which causes one or both parties to enter into the contract without fully understanding the outcomes or obligations suggested by the agreement. Unilateral mistakes A “unilateral mistake” is such a blunder, to the point that is held by only one party and not shared by the other party. Besides, a unilateral mistake happens when only party is mistaken as to the subject matter or the terms contained in the contract agreement. This type of mistake is for the most part more common than other types of contract mistakes, such as a mutual mistake
The consideration given does not have to be fair. Bargain by one party to the contract in terms of the quantity of compensation is not subjected to legal court intervention unless there exists fraud or unacceptable conducts. Consideration, therefore, acts as the value of a contract. It brings the difference between a mere gift and a contract as the former is a voluntary act, and its breaching is not enforceable in the law courts. The only exception to the consideration rule is for the goods of a seal.
II. Inducement. The misrepresentation must have induced the representee to enter into the contract therefore there must be casual connection between the making of misrepresentation and the conclusion of the contract, but no assistance will be granted if the representee knew that the statement was false and failed to
Condition and warranties are very different in contract. Condition is a term of the contract which is a necessary issue, in the sense that any breach will allow the other party to abrogation. Warranties is less important terms which are secondary to the main purpose of the contract (Topic 2: Contract Law, p37-38 ). The difference between these is of fundamental importance in assessing whether a failure to perform them represents a breach of contract. The innocent party’s rights in response to a breach of a term depend on how serious or fundamental the actual breach is.
It comprises of obligations from a mutual agreement and intent to promise, which have not been communicated in words. It is misleading to label as an implied contract one that is implied in law because a contract implied in law does not have the requirements of a true contract. Quasi-contract is a more fitting representation of contracts implied in law. Implied contracts are as binding as express contracts. An implied contract depends on substance for its existence.
As the consequentialist theory implies that one should make decision after calculating its repercussions on others, this case shows that some cases cannot fit into the consequentialist theory as every decision in business cannot be monitored and its consequences predicted accurately beforehand. A non-consequentialist theory judges the rightness or wrongness of an action based on the intrinsic value, not on its consequences i.e. morality is based on duty. Consequentialisim, however is a doctrine where your action is judged on the consequence it bears. Non-consequentialism hence denies the fact that the wrongness or rightness of our conduct is determined solely by the goodness or badness of the consequences it
Firstly, the requirement of privies is narrow. Privies refers to people has relation in blood, title or interest. However “interest” is hardly to define. The law only uses the narrow sense on interest that the defendant should not be harassed twice. It excluded the other possibilities of “interested parties” and makes the rule
If a person's actions do not meet this standard of care, then the acts are considered negligent, and any damages resulting may be claimed in a lawsuit for negligence.” Simply duty of care is not doing something that would be harmful to their clients, by professionals. Liability The liability is simply the state of being legally responsible for something. In the field of law, liability means legal responsibility for one's acts or omissions.  Then, liability is the responsibility to pay compensation when something went wrong because of
There are times when unforeseen supervening events occur without fault of either contracting party and render performance of the contract impossible or radically different from what the parties contemplated when they enter into it. Subsequently leading the Courts to call in frustration and discharge the contract irrespective of the parties’ wishes. Due to its radical impact towards the contracting parties, the threshold of ‘impossibility’ is set very high by the Courts thus frustration of contracts is of limited practicability. The definition of ‘impossibility’ has widely been criticized unclear and uncertain as the Courts tend to interpret it extremely narrowly. In respect of justice and certainty of the rule of law, it is essential for the courts to act in this way.
