Example text

2) A commercial practice is a misleading action if— (a) it contains false information or is likely to deceive the average consumer as to the existence or nature of the product or its main characteristics or the price or the rights of the parties; and (b) it is likely to cause the average consumer to take a transactional decision that would not otherwise have been taken. (3) A commercial practice is aggressive if— (a) through the use of harassment, coercion, or undue influence, it is likely significantly to impair the average consumer’s freedom of choice or conduct in relation to the product; and (b) it is likely to cause the average consumer to take a transactional decision that would not otherwise have been taken.

Subject to subsection (2), the following rules apply— (a) where the obligation or contract is interpreted as being ‘entire’, this means that substantial performance of it is required before payment is due; (b) where the obligation or contract is interpreted as being ‘severable’, this means that payment is due once there has been substantial performance of a specified part of it. Where the contract has been repudiated by the defendant, the claimant is normally entitled to hold the contract open, to perform (where it is possible to do so without the defendant’s co-operation), and to be awarded the agreed sum due for that performance; but, as a rare exception to that normal rule, a claimant is not so entitled where to hold the contract open, to perform, and to claim the agreed sum would be wholly unreasonable.

46 Enforcement by the promisee (1) A promisee’s damages for breach of a contract made for the benefit of a third party are normally concerned to compensate the loss of the promisee, not the loss of the third party, so that those damages will often be nominal. (2) A promisee may be granted specific performance requiring the promisor to perform for the benefit of the third party where a court is satisfied that the damages for the promisee, in particular nominal damages, would be inadequate to produce a just result.
