    Here's some of the classics:

    Partridge v Crittenden
    Carlill v Carbolic
    Storer v Manchester CC

    Welcome to the horrible world of the common law.

    There is no definition of what qualifies as an ITT and what qualifies as an offer. You won't find a single all-encompassing definition of either in any case. This is the nature of a common law system. The cases explain why an individual situation is or is not an offer. From reading all of these cases you can begin to develop an understanding of the boundaries of invitations to treat versus offers.


    Although, maybe you're just asking, what does ITT mean, and what does offer mean.

    ITT is a non-binding expression of interest in engaging in a negotiation.

    Offer is a binding proposition of contractual relations on specific and invariable terms.

    Any of these cases will explain this.
