Terms of a Contract (3)
4. Written Contracts: Anything written prior to contract will be incorporated to a term. However, judges have sometimes incorporated oral terms in writing.
CASE: "Birch v Paramount Estates". In this case the claimant bought a house and he was promised it would be 'as good as the show house'. The house wasn't as good as the show house. HELD: It was a term as the statement was so central it had been incorporated.
5. Signatures: A person is bound by terms of a contract, even if they don't understand or read english.
CASE: "L'estrange v Graucob". In this case a woman purchased a vending machine and signed a delivery note.
