    Alexandra purchases a hotel in Devon. It requires renovation and she employs Bertram to install a new kitchen for £50,000. She plans to reopen the hotel in time for the summer trade and so stipulates in the contract that the kitchen must be completed by the end of March. By the end of January, it becomes clear that the work will not be completed on time. Alexandra promises to pay Bertram a further £6,000 which will enable him to hire extra staff to ensure completion on due date. Her husband, Charles, concerned at the pressure being placed on his wife, promises Bertram a further £1,000 'bonus' if he completes on time. Meanwhile, Alexandra owes money to the decorators, Décor Ltd. She speaks to their managing director in January and promises to pay a further £700 of the £1,000 due immediately (the money is due at the end of March), provided that this extinguishes the debt. The managing director agrees and Alexandra pays the £700.
    Bertram completes the work at the end of March, but Alexandra and Charles now refuse to pay him more than the £50,000 due under the contract. Alexandra also receives a demand for £300 from Décor Ltd at the end of March.
    Advise the parties.
