Course of Dealing in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Oxley v Hiscock
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 06 Mayo 2004

    It must now be accepted that (at least in this Court and below) the answer is that each is entitled to that share which the court considers fair having regard to the whole course of dealing between them in relation to the property. includes the arrangements which they make from time to time in order to meet the outgoings (for example, mortgage contributions, council tax and utilities, repairs, insurance and housekeeping) which have to be met if they are to live in the property as their home.

  • Midland Bank v Cooke and Another
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 07 Julio 1995

    When the court is proceeding, in cases like the present where the partner without legal title has successfully asserted an equitable interest through direct contribution, to determine (in the absence of express evidence of intention) what proportions the parties must be assumed to have intended for their beneficial ownership, the duty of the judge is to undertake a survey of the whole course of dealing between the parties relevant to their ownership and occupation of the property and their sharing of its burdens and advantages.

  • Garnac Grain Company Inc. v H. M. F. Faure & Fairclough Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 26 Abril 1967

    The relationship of principal and agent can only be established by the consent of the principal and the agent. They will be held to have consented if they have agreed to what amounts in law to such a relationship, even if they do not recognise it themselves and even if they have professed to disclaim it, as in Ex. p. Delhasse (supra). But the consent must have been given by each of them, either expressly or by implication from their words and conduct.

  • Circle Freight International Ltd (trading as Mogul Air) v Medeast Gulf Exports Ltd (trading as Gulf Export)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Abril 1988

    In these circumstances, despite Mr. Gompertz's clear and succinct argument to the contrary, I consider that reasonable notice of the terms was given by the plaintiffs. In those circumstances it is irrelevant that in fact Mr. Zacaria did not read the notices.

  • Armagas Ltd v Mundogas SA (The Ocean Frost)
    • House of Lords
    • 22 Mayo 1986

    In the commonly encountered case, the ostensible authority is general in character, arising when the principal has placed the agent in a position which in the outside world is generally regarded as carrying authority to enter into transactions of the kind in question.

  • Stack v Dowden
    • House of Lords
    • 25 Abril 2007

    The law has indeed moved on in response to changing social and economic conditions. The search is to ascertain the parties' shared intentions, actual, inferred or imputed, with respect to the property in the light of their whole course of conduct in relation to it.

  • Jones v Kernott
    • Supreme Court
    • 09 Noviembre 2011

    (4) In those cases where it is clear either (a) that the parties did not intend joint tenancy at the outset, or (b) had changed their original intention, but it is not possible to ascertain by direct evidence or by inference what their actual intention was as to the shares in which they would own the property, should be given a broad meaning, enabling a similar range of factors to be taken into account as may be relevant to ascertaining the parties' actual intentions.
