Rules Relating to an Offer - Law of Contract

However the case law relating to an offer has established the following rules:

1. Such offer may be oral plus written or may be implicated commencing the conditions of the offers.

2. Well an offer must be simplify or definite in certain as that the offeree may truly be aware of the intention about the offeror and believe his response thereto: Scammel and Nephew Ltd. v. Ouston in which an offer which referred for as "hire purchase terms" over a chapter of two years was declared like "void" because of uncertainty over the meaning about "hire purchase terms"

However a person cannot be said to have accepted an offer about such conditions: that he would not have understood that what he was purporting to accept and admire.  Conversely in Stevens v. Mclean the court described such, an offeror might describe a vague offer whether asked to do so.

3. Thus an offer may be conditional or unconditional.

4. An offer could be made to as;

  • first is the general public like in Carlill v. Carbolic Smoke Ball Co. Ltd.;
  • Second is a class of persons where in Wood v. Lektric Ltd - whether an offer was completed to as "hair sufferers"-a class of persons that to whom the court held such the plaintiff, -Mr. Wood, a young man like whose hair was prematurely turning grey and was such as a consequence that a "hair sufferer" within the offer that belonged. Moreover Mr Wood had properly accepted and admired the offer but it was not addressed for him personally, or like particular person when in Boulton v. Jones

5. Such offer may prescribe the extent the offer is to remain open to acceptance whether Dicknson v Dodds and Routledge v Grant.
