Question: Jesse is considering buying his aunt Karen’s house as an investment. During the negotiations, Karen states, “This house is worth £200,000 and I’ve had two separate valuations from estate agents verifying that, but since I love you so much I’ll sell it to you for £180,000.” Karen has not received any valuations from estate agents and the house is worth only £120,000. Jesse buys the house for £180,000.

Two weeks after Jesse has completed the sale and moved into the house, he discovers that Karen did not receive any valuations from estate agents. The same week, Jesse discovers that the value of the house has been reduced to £80,000 due to serious damage caused by the collapse of a supporting wall. At this point, a buyer offers £80,000 for the house. Jesse does not sell the house until three months later, when Jesse only receives £75,000 for the house because of a general fall of the property market.

Question: Problem scenario: Molly is a single mother. She takes her daughter Rhonda (a two year old infant) to a local playground. While lighting a cigarette, Molly starts talking with another young parent, Dilbert. Molly is distracted by Dilbert's good looks and gritty charm. Meanwhile, Rhonda starts to wander over to the road.

Dilbert notices a possible catastrophe and rushes out after Rhonda. Dilbert just manages to save Rhonda from being run over by Bob, who is driving a van within the speed limit and quite safely. However, Dilbert has too much forward momentum and collides with Bob's van. Dilbert is seriously injured. Bob skids off the road and crashes into some playground equipment. Luckily, no children are using the equipment.

Laura, driving at speed behind Bob sees the above-related events and put her foot down hard on the brakes. Laura's car skids on an oil slick and crashes into a tree. Some distance behind the tree was Leonard. Leonard thought that Laura's car might hit him and he started running away screaming 'oh Lord, don't take me now!' Leonard has an underlying personality disorder and develops a paranoid fear of going out into the street. As a result he loses his job and his livelihood.

The accident involving Leonard is witnessed by Sherry, Rhonda's grandmother, who is also at the park. Sherry suffers from a brief fright, but believes that she will be alright. However, she later develops post-dramatic stress disorder as a result of this event, combined with the news that Rhonda barely escaped serious injury. She had not seen the incident involving Rhonda herself because she hadn't busy setting out the picnic lunch.

Identify any action available in the tort of negligence and analyse the elements of the tort accordingly.

Bigstore Furniture Ltd (“Bigstore”) is a retailer of household furniture. The company announced its summer sale on 1 July 2009 by placing the following advertisement in several national daily newspapers in the UK.

Prices cut by up to 70%!
Special offer! Anyone purchasing an Italia leather three-seater sofa by cash or credit card at the reduced price of £750 will receive an Italia leather two-seater sofa priced at £500 in the sale absolutely free of charge!
This offer is available at all our stores until 31st August 2009.

(The advertisement concluded by listing in small print all the company’s stores throughout
the country.)

On 5 August 2009 Susan took a copy of the advertisement with her and called at her local
Bigstore to inspect the Italia sofas. She spoke to Ben, the Sales Manager, and told him that
she had decided to purchase the sofas subject to first talking this over with her husband. Ben told Susan that the company only had a limited number of two-seaters so it was agreed that she would leave £100 in return for his agreement to hold the sofas for 48 hours. Ben told her that he would deduct the £100 from the purchase price if Susan went ahead with the
purchase within that time period.

On 7 August 2009 Susan called at the store to purchase the sofas and spoke to Ben who was
very apologetic but explained that his staff had forgotten to reserve the sofas for her. He
explained that in any event the two-seaters were “subject to availability” (as stated in
various notices around the store), and the company had now run out of them. Ben also said
that “…obviously the two-seaters were a free gift and were subject to availability.” He
pointed out that the Italia three-seater sofa was still available but the price had now gone
back up to £2,500.

By reference to case law and statute or your own examples where appropriate:

(a) Explain the elements of a unilateral offer and how such an offer may be accepted.

(b) Explain whether the advert amounts to an offer or an invitation to treat in respect of
(i) the three-seater sofas;
(ii) the two-seater sofas

(c) Explain with reasons what Susan purchased by paying GBP 100 on 5 August 2009. Was Susan entitled to have the GBP 100 deducted from the purchase price even if Ben had not agreed to do so?

(d) Explain whether those who purchased a three-seater sofa were contractually entitled to receive a two-seater as well or whether Ben was correct in stating “obviously the two-seaters were a free gift…..”

(e) Explain with reasons whether Bigstore has acted in breach of contract despite the notices which state that the two-seaters were “subject to availability"?

Answer: Whereas normally a valid agreement should comprise of offer and acceptance, with advertisements the general rule is that they are not offers but statements inviting further negotiations or invitations to treat with...
