On 13 September, Fiona, a newly qualified dentist, receives the following note from her uncle:
10 Park Street
We talked some time ago about you buying some of my dental equipment when I retire from my London practice at the end of this month. I am prepared to let you have
everything for 15,000. Let me know fairly quickly if you are interested because Ive already had a very good offer from one of my colleagues.
Your affectionate uncle
Fiona is keen to take advantage of her uncles offer but is unsure whether she can raise such a large amount of money by the end of September. She phones her uncle to
find out whether she can have until after Christmas to pay. Her uncle is away at a conference and so Fiona leaves a message with his secretary. Two weeks pass by and,
as Fiona has not heard from her uncle, she arranges a loan with her bank. On 28 September she writes to her uncle accepting his offer and enclosing a cheque for
15,000. On 30 September, her uncle phones to say that he has already sold the equipment to someone else.

Lynx Cars Ltd, the manufacturer of a revolutionary fuel-efficient small car, enters into a five-year dealership agreement with Roadstar Ltd, a northern-based company
of car dealers, in November 2003. A clause in the agreement states: This agreement is not intended to be legally binding but the parties honourably pledge that they
will carry out its terms.
Roadstar places an initial order for 2,000 cars to be delivered by the end of 2007, which is accepted by the manufacturer. One month after the successful launch of the
car, Lynx Cars Ltd writes to Roadstar Ltd informing that, owing to production difficulties, the company estimates that it will be able to deliver only 200 cars by the
end of 2007. It further states that it will be withdrawing from the dealership agreement from the end of 2007 to be able to concentrate its resources on its south of
England car dealers. Roadstar Ltd is seeking some advice.
Paul is looking for a second-hand car when he sees an advertisement in is local evening paper which reads:
SLICK CAR SALES LTD
Hundreds of used car bargains. Lowest prices youve ever seen. Definitely the lowest prices in Britain; All cars purchased this month will include Road Fund Tax, Radio,
Stereo and a full tank of petrol. Paul visits the showrooms of Slick Cars and selects a car priced at 3,995 which the salesman tells him is a 1994 Mondeo which has
done 30,000 miles and has had only one owner. Paul signs a sales agreement which describes the car as 1994 Ford Mondeo. Cayman Blue; Registration Number L931 AJU.
Paul is unsure of which of these statements represent traders puff, representation, conditions or warranty. He also wants to know the implied terms in this agreement
and the remedies available to him if any of these statements turns out to be false.
