Case 1

A seller put up two engine analyzers for sale by auction, with no reserve. The price of the machines would have been £14,521 each if they had been new. The plaintiff was a bidder at the auction. He bid £200 for each machine, and was the highest bidder. The auctioneer refused to sell the machines to the claimant for such a low price, despite the ‘no reserve’ sale. The plaintiff brought an action against the auctioneer for breach of contract.

2.      Can the plaintiff discharge the contract? On what bases?

The contract was signed on 6 May 1998. Geri Halliwell left the band on 27 May that year. The defendant discovered that Halliwell informed the other members of the group of her decision to leave prior to the signing of the contract. The defendants claimed they had been induced to enter the contract by a misrepresentation. The plaintiff denied misrepresentation.

Case 3:

D.’s barn was on fire and he called the local Upton police chief and asked him to send “the fire brigade”. The Upton fire brigade showed up and began to put out the fire. While the fire was still burning, a neighboring fire chief came by and informed all that the farm was really in his district, and so the Upton fire brigade was not under obligation to put it out for free. When the D. refused to pay for the service, they sued.

2.      Should the farmer pay payment as required?

The repair was valued at £174. So, the defendant refused to pay any of the £560 of the contract. Householder – defective central heating worth £560 – £174 = £386.

2.      Was the plumber entitled to payment? Or is the householder able to get away without paying?

 

Case 5:
