Could you please explain the principle behind the term ‘binding in honour only’? I do know that once that clause has been used in an agreement, it rebuts the presumption that the parties involved intend to create legal relations in a business agreement context. However, I don’t know what the clause means literally or the rationale for which it renders the business agreement presumption rebuttable. Any help, pls?
Or shall I just accept the clause for what it is and get on with it? 🙂
Just accept it!
It dates back to the time when people would enter contracts on the shake of a hand. I think it’s the stock exchange which has the motto “dictum meum factum” meaning “my word is my bond”
