The second question is on page 11 no 4.15 bpp revision kit

Ijtihad, I would dearly like to help you but I don’t have a BPP revision kit to hand
Am I asking too much for you to type out the questions in full?
I look forward to hearing from youApril 25, 2020 at 6:53 am
4.13 The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 sets out the circumstances where a third party has a right
to enforce rights they may have under a contract.
Which of the following statements concerning the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 is correct?
The third party need not be expressly identified in the contract
The third party need not be in existence when the contract was formed
The Act confers rights to third parties under a company’s constitution
The Act confers rights to third parties under employment contracts
4 15 Which TWO of the following social, domestic and family contracts would be presumed by the courts as
intended to be legally binding?
An agreement where a father offers to pay his daughter a monthly allowance if she continues her
An agreement between friends to enter a newspaper competition together and share any prizes
An agreement between a husband and wife who have separated for one to rent the family home from
An agreement by a son to pay his mother housekeeping money while he stays at home
Add to that a question from online test, LW English Chapter 7 Questions Employment Law question no 3, where is the remedies in relation to unfair dismissal covered in the notes?April 25, 2020 at 8:22 am
OK, I’ve read the questions and have in my mind the answers
You say you need help with these questions – what is it about the answers that you don’t understand?
As for your supplementary question concerning the course notes and unfair dismissal remedies, in my defence I can only point out that the notes are not intended to be a replacement of a study text – the notes contain sufficient details to assist you in your attempt at the law exam
Where there is an apparent omission in the notes you can always check on the internet. I have done just that to ensure that it’s easy enough – I put into Google ‘remedies for unfair dismissal’ and was rewarded with a full explanation
Let me know what is troubling you about the answers to the two multiple choice questions
OK?April 29, 2020 at 8:09 am
for question 4.15, i just want to know the reasoning behind what makes a social,domestic,family contracts legally binding?April 29, 2020 at 2:12 pm
It boils down to a matter of ‘intention’
In case law there is a case involving grandfather, granddaughter and lodger entering newspaper competitions with an agreement to share any prize money. This was held to be a binding contract
As for the other three, you need to ask yourself ‘was there consideration attributable to BOTH parties?’
Father / daughter and her education? Not really – continuing her education would be for her own benefit so she’s not giving anything extra that could be classed as consideration
Mother / son and housekeeping? In family ‘contracts’ the courts will presume that there is no intention to create legal relations in a domestic situation
But husband and separated wife? These two can no longer be considered to be in a domestic family relationship so it seems to me that their rental agreement would be seen by the courts as being an enforceable contract
Is that OK for you?April 30, 2020 at 12:37 pm
Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 is this in the note? from the second question.
Also i am doing question in the bpp kit,there is so much question not in the note.Can i rely on the note and lecture just to pass this exam?April 30, 2020 at 3:36 pm
Instead of a vague complaint (“there is so much question not in the note”) it would be far more constructive to give me examples of the areas not covered by the notes!
In answer to your question, no, the Rights of Third Parties Act is not covered in the notes
I look forward to hearing from youMay 1, 2020 at 9:21 am
its not a complain. i am just asking if i go by the notes and lecture only, is it possible to pass.May 1, 2020 at 9:24 am
I have completed the first three papers,i could have done them much faster if i had keep to lectures and note only instead of going into detail with study text.is it the same with this paper?May 1, 2020 at 5:02 pm
You should be fine with the combination of notes, lectures and LOADS of question practice
