Subrogation - Void Contracts
However in Re National Permanent Benefit Building Society would the court stated that where an infant obtains a loan for necessaries and really spends it in paying to necessaries the lender could sue in equity and hence would be allowed for stand in the place of those that who had sold the necessaries and would have had on common law a right to sue him whether he had not been paid. Conversely this remedy is acknowledged as "subrogation" and then the lender is said for subrogated to the rights about the seller and sues as whether he were the seller and had not been paid.
Whenever an adult person makes a promise for pay a debt contracted during infancy or perform such a void contract made during infancy then the promise is void and unenforceable against the promisor : as Infants' Relief Act, S. 2. Because the Infants Relief Act has been repealed in the England with the Minor's Contracts Act, 1987, then it appears such is still a prima facie source of the US Law from the time when the repealing Act has not been prepared part of the US Law.
