Ambiguous Drafting in Property Contracts – Will the Courts Help and How?

Recorded on: 01/07/2021

Legal documents – lease, overage agreements, sale and purchase contracts – are carefully drafted, but what happens when the clarity later appears ambiguous? Will the court interpret the document the way you want? Will it imply in a term your client needs? This round-up of recent cases draws practical lessons for busy practitioners advising such clients:

  • What is meant by ambiguity? Is there a difference between “natural and ordinary meaning” and typographical errors?
  • Commercial common-sense – where are we now? Fishbourne Developments v Stephens;
  • Missing terms – will they be implied? Yoo Design Services Limited v iLiv Reality PTE Limited;
  • Why Arnold v Britton is still so important
