Contracts - Terminate or Wait?

The trouble with entering into a contract (e.g. to buy property) is that it is human nature that no sooner do you get in than you, or maybe your spouse, want to get out. But the law will not let you do so easily as commerce requires certainty. So you are stuck, and it is at that stage you ask your lawyer to look carefully at the contract to see if it is watertight.

Penalty - A Bad Word

In Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, Shylock insisted on a pound of flesh as it was the penalty upon which Antonio had agreed if he defaulted on his debt. In that case, there was some fancy footwork by a lawyer and Shylock lost out.

New Book - "I'll Have the Law On You"

This is the first major edition of John Fytit’s* works and is as close as we will come to the autobiography that he never wrote.




Disclaimer: The content of the Law & Disorder eZine is to give you legal basics and in some instances, included unashamedly to try and make you laugh. In law, it is sometimes difficult to work out what is serious and what is just for fun. Therefore, if you plan to do anything legal, rely on your own lawyer's advice or instruct me to look at the particular facts of your case. Not only will I deny responsibility for the legal content but also for some of the jokes.
