Introduction

‘An astonishing lack of care [illustrating] the dangers of cutting and pasting, without checking the details’ was the Tribunal’s comment in a recent case - where it had to grapple with mismatched service charge provisions in the leases of part of a building.

How does a court or tribunal handle careless drafting apart from reserving a ‘special place in hell for the person(s) who proof read’ - as was recently suggested in a case?

And what should you be advising your client?

This practical session looks at the court’s approach to resolving clumsy, ambiguous or downright careless drafting - and what it can and cannot do to assist the parties.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • When commercial common-sense does still matter: Gaia v Abbeygate; Toms v Ruberry; Airport Industrial v Heathrow Airport
  • Adding in missing words
  • Why sometimes a bad bargain is just that: Triplerose v Stride; Arnold v Britton
  • The importance of definitions; implying terms and why the court rarely helps: Mears v Costplan; Sparks v Biden
