pp. 92-93 Introduction to contract assignation

Prima del "Rights of Third Parties 1999 Act", in Inghilterra non vi era contratto a favore di terzo, il privity of contract riguardava solo le parti che risultavano nel contratto.

Si potrebbe tirare fuori qualche osservazione mettendo a confronto il sopra citato atto del parlamento con l'art. 1411 del nostro Codice Civile.


Key terms: contracts ex. 1-3
pp. 94 Language use: nouns ending in -or and –ee
- obligor vs obliger

Language notes:

In legal English there is however a difference between withholding and refusing. The first means ‘not giving’ something, while the second may require some affirmative act or statement. See withholding consent vs refusing consent

- If a contract purports to confer a right, it claims (or attempts) to do so but it does not necessarily confer the right.
- Construction of the contract means its interpretation by a lawyer to resolve any potential ambiguity.
- A collateral contract is a parallel contract. The parties to a contract may sign an additional contract with the third party.
- A deed poll, un atto unilaterale, is a deed made and executed by only one party. It is like a contract except that means it binds only one party. The best known example is a deed poll to change one’s name: by signing such a deed poll. Another deed poll is used to partition poll A sole owner, or several owners, of a piece of land may partition its/their land by entering a Deed poll (sometimes referred to as "carving out").
- A trust is an entity which holds somebody’s assets. Trusts are often used to avoid paying inheritance tax. The term trust relationship (rapporto di natura fiduciaria) refers to the relationship between the trustor (who gives money to the trust) and the trustee (who administrate those assets).
- de·mised prem·i·ses = leased property: a property or part of a property that is leased to a tenant
