Sample text

But a statement of opinion ‘I believe such and such . ’ can be a representation and can therefore be a misrepresentation if the representor does not actually hold the belief, because, as Bowen LJ explained: ‘The state of a man’s mind is as much a fact as the state of his digestion. It is true that it is very difficult to prove what the state of a man’s mind at a particular time is, but if it can be ascertained it is as much a fact as anything else. 04 A somewhat more surprising line of authority holds that ‘mere puff’ or sales-speak does not constitute a representation.

09 If the breach ‘goes to the root of the contract’ or deprives the party of substantially the whole benefit the contract was intended to confer on him, then he will be entitled to treat the contract as at an end. 10 If one party evinces an intention not to continue to perform his side of the contract then the other party may again treat the contract as at an end. 11 In all three of the circumstances described above the innocent party has a choice as to whether or not to treat himself as discharged.

01 Armed with the information derived from this chapter a prospective claimant should have some idea of what his contract is, whether it has been breached, what he can do about it, and who he should sue.

This may mean that the claimant can sue before any real physical damage has been experienced. Suppose the defendant is an architect who has, in breach of contract, designed foundations for a building which are inadequate, and it is clear that in ten to twenty years’ time the building will fall down if remedial works are not carried out.
