Blackpool v Blackpool, Facts, Issue and Decision

  • by

Decision:

The court adopted a two contract analysis. A contract was concluded with the party whose tender was accepted but the invitation to tender also amounted to a unilateral offer to consider any tender which was submitted by 12am.

So the claimants made the acceptance when they posted the letter with their bid. As the courts also said that the defendants were under an obligation to consider the tender of claimants because of their past course of dealing.
