Contract lawWatch this thread
I'm a Civil Engineering student but I have to study contract law as part of my degree but have no experience at all with this field
basically is the contract void if you sign it without reading it? Is there any statute law about reading contracts before signing them?
help would be much appreciated !!
Is there any statute law in relation?
The summary of the situation is that a company BJL were contracted by KDC to build a new factory in 8weeks for a fixed price.
BJL had a clause which says : they will not be liable to any problems due to poor workmanship
They did not water tight the factory roof resulting in 3 weeks worth of loss of business after completion of contract
And did not connect the power supply which was left unconnected for 6 weeks after completion resulting in £100,00 loss of business for KDC
Is there any common law or statute law which i can read up on in relation such as duty of care? Or any similar case studies about negligence or clauses?
Are there any books you would recommend or law journals?
I don't want to rely on googling case studies and getting penalised for poor references
