Help with a contract law essayWatch this thread
Tony and his sister-in-law, Uma, signed a written contract for the sale of a £100,000 painting. In a phone call with Uma, Tony stated that the picture was "worth £125,000." 'I guarantee the artwork to be worth at least £125,000,' Tony scribbled on the back of the written contract at Uma's request. A stipulation*in the written contract stated that "no warranty is offered about the value of the artwork." Tony believed the painting was worth £125,000 despite making little effort to verify the information. In recent years, the artist has gone out of popularity, and the picture is now valued significantly less than £100,000.
Please advise Uma.
Have a look at contract law. I’m no law expert but if someone buys something from a shop then they have a right to expect certain things. Read the sale of services and goods act and make notes. Good luck.
