    One day, Sam a builder by trade, meets up with Jo, an old girlfriend, in the local public house. During the course of their conversation, Jo mentions that her flat is "badly in need of repair" and asks Sam to “help her out.” After a couple of drinks, Sam agrees that he will do "all the necessary repairs" for £1,000. Two weeks later, when Sam has half-finished the work, he tells Jo "I've priced the job far too low." Jo explains to Sam that they have an agreement and therefore believes that he must do what he has promised. After the work is complete, Jo is so impressed with Sam's efforts that she promises him an extra £200. Sam has asked Jo for the extra money but she now refuses to pay him any extra.

    With reference to the law of contract only, be prepared to advise Sam and Jo.

    That's not a question for the law students, that's asking us to do your homework!

    Is it a verbal contract or not? I don't think it is because there were no agreed terms on both parties

    Lack of intention to create legal relations could be argued.

    The law of property act 1925 states that any agreement should be written down but does repairment of the flat constitutes as property???

    It says use contract law only so you mention the law of property act....Why would that have relevance here? the law of property act, surprise surprise, is based on property law, not law of contract

    It is a consideration case, look it up for yourself or you will not learn. Your a big boy now so you have to do your own work
