With reference to decided case law, analyse whether there is an offer and acceptance resulting in a contract in the two situations set out below. Both parts are equally weighted.
a) On 21 May, Larry sends an email to Charlotte, saying ‘will you buy my Ford Focus, registration NC05 XYZ, for £5,000’? Charlotte sends a letter to Larry on 22 May, saying ‘yes’, but the letter doesn’t arrive until 29 May. On 28 May, Larry sells the car to Raina for £4500.
b) A Ltd orders a mechanical digger from B Ltd at an advertised price of £100,000, with payment to be made within 30 days of delivery of the goods. With the order, A sends its standard terms and conditions to B, stating the price to be paid is £100,000 and B, in return, sends its terms and conditions, stating that the price to be paid is the price on delivery. A resends its terms and conditions and B delivers the digger. Both parties are now disputing the price to be paid. A insists on paying £100,000, while B insists on A paying £110,000, the price on delivery.
