Hal a £200 tent from Outwaes, a local store, in preparation for a summer camping holiday. He did not check the tent until the day before he was due to leave, when he found that it was badly made and would not stay up. Fortunately, his next-door neighbour, Jed, was able to lend him a suitable tent.
When Hal returned from holiday after six weeks, he took the tent back to Outward who said that there was nothing they could do because he had signed an invoice which stated that goods could only be returned if a fault was reported within 21 days.
Whilst Hal was away, Jed had become ill and was no longer able to do the repair work to his house that he had intended. The work needed to be done before winter set in. Hal, a builder, promised to do the work needed because Jed had lent him the tent. However, Hal never did the work and Jed had to pay £500 to another builder for the repairs to be done.
