Interpretation In An Agreement

The object detection policy has given rise to a number of instruments of judicial interpretation: the interpretation of contracts in English law is an area of English contract law that deals with how the courts decide what an agreement means. According to settled case-law, the procedure is based on the objective opinion of a reasonable person in the context in which the parties concluded their agreement. This approach marks a break with earlier rigid interpretations of the 1970s, in which the courts paid more attention to the formal expression of the parties` intentions and looked more verbatim at what they had said. The Court is reluctant to allow a full party who has signed a document with an act of consultation to say that this is not what it meant. Otherwise, security and enforcement would be hampered by constant attempts to tarnish the problem by referring to pre-contractual negotiations. These considerations apply with particular force in the field of trade, where certainty is so important. In the cases reported, different expressions were used to describe the standard of proof required of the person requesting a correction. . . .
