Sample text

Offers concerned with building projects are generally made on the basis of detailed terms and conditions. The parties to the contract will be bound by these conditions, as long as they know that such conditions were incorporated in the offer, even though they may never have read them or acquainted themselves with the details. In many instances with building contracts the offer must follow a stipulated procedure. Such procedures often incorporate delivery of the offer by a certain date and time, in writing, on a special form, and in a particular envelope, and stipulate that the offer must not be disclosed to a third party.

Did that person have any other available course of action? • Were they independently advised? • After entering into the contract, did they take steps to avoid it? Unenforceable contracts Contracts may be described as void, or voidable or unenforceable. A void contract creates no legal rights and cannot therefore be sued upon. It may occur because of a mistake as to the nature of the contract, or because it involves the performance of something illegal that is prohibited by a statute. A void contract will also result because of the incapacity of the parties, as in the case of infants.

Parties to a contract must be made to prosecute their causes within a reasonable time. For this reason Parliament has enacted limitation acts which set a time limit on the commencement of litigation. The rules and procedures in respect of limitation of actions are contained in the Limitation Act 1980. The right to bring an action can be discharged in three ways: • The parties to a contract might decide to discharge their rights • Through the judgment of a court • Through lapse of time If an action is not commenced within a certain time then the right to sue is extinguished.
