Gibson v Manchester City Council (MCC)

  • by


Firstly the Trial Court and Court of Appeal (COA) held that there was a contract, based on the decision of Storer v MCC, but when the case was referred to House of Lords (HOL).

They said that there was no contract as the words used by council “maybe prepared to sell” was not an offer, As it did not commit the council to selling the house it was simply an Invitation to treat (ITT)

Important Points of Gibson v Manchester city Council (MCC)

Any statement made for the invitation to make an offer is not an offer, but an invitation to treat (ITT).
