Contracts Regulation in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Barclays Bank Plc v O'Brien
    • House of Lords
    • 21 Octubre 1993

    In particular, if the party asserting that he takes free of the earlier rights of another knows of certain facts which put him on inquiry as to the possible existence of the rights of that other and he fails to make such inquiry or take such other steps as are reasonable to verify whether such earlier right does or does not exist, he will have constructive notice of the earlier right and take subject to it.

  • CIBC Mortgages Plc v Pitt and Another
    • House of Lords
    • 21 Octubre 1993

    The abuse of confidence principle is founded on considerations of general public policy viz. that in order to protect those to whom fiduciaries owe duties as a class from exploitation by fiduciaries as a class, the law imposes a heavy duty on fiduciaries to show the righteousness of the transactions they enter into with those to whom they owe such duties.

  • Avon Finance Company Ltd (Plaintiffs) v George William Bridger and Joan Bridger
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Octubre 1979

    The first matter is that the plaintiffs chose to appoint the son, who was the debtor, to procure from his parents the security which he and they needed to further the transaction on which they were engaged. The person whom they chose to appoint, being a son, could be expected to have some influence over his elderly parents, and that is something of which the plaintiffs could or should have been aware.

  • Bank of Credit and Commerce International SA v Aboody
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Noviembre 1988

    On arrival at the Bank's premises, on 7th February 1980, Mrs. Aboody was conducted by a clerk from the Bank, Mr. Webster, to the office of Mr. Hallworth, the solicitor from Foysters, who was intended to advise her. Mr. Hallworth took Mrs. Aboody into a private room to speak to her privately, while Mr. Aboody waited in an adjacent room. Mr. Hallworth had read through the terms of the Charge before the interview.

  • Banco Exterior Internacional v Mann
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Noviembre 1994

    It was no part of the solicitor's duty to advise her not to sign. It was enough if she would receive such advice as would leave her in no doubt of her right to decide whether she was willing in all the circumstances to take a risk which had been explained to her.

  • Lloyd's Bank Ltd v Bundy
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 30 Julio 1974

    By virtue of it, the English law gives relief to one who, without independent advice, enters into a contract or transfers property for a consideration which is grossly inadequate, when his bargaining power is grievously impaired by reason of his own needs or desires, or by his own ignorance or infirmity, coupled with undue influences or pressures brought to bear on him by or for the benefit of the other.

  • Bank of Baroda v Rayarel and Others
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 13 Enero 1995

    The bank's legal department is not obliged to commit the professional discourtesy of communicating directly with the solicitor's client and tendering such advice itself. Nor is it obliged to inform the solicitor of his professional duties. This will be a fortiori the case when the documents submitted by the bank to the surety's solicitor contain a certificate that she has been advised of the effect of the document and her right to have independent legal advice.
