beswick v beswick judgement

One effect of section 56 was to make clear that which may not havebeen plain in the authorities that those matters dealt with were not confinedto covenants etc. It is not necessary, however, to consider the amount of damages more closelysince this is a case in which, as the Court of Appeal rightly decided, themore appropriate remedy is that of specific performance. I would not venture to criticise it. In that case an annuity of £40 p.a. Perhaps more important is the fact that the section does not say that aperson may take the benefit of an agreement although he was not a partyto it: it says that he may do so although he was not named as a partyin the instrument which embodied the agreement. If application of that definition would result in giving to section 56 a meaning going beyond that of the old section, then, in my opinion, the context does require that the definition of "property" shall not be applied to that word in section 56. I am bound to say I do not quite understand that. Counsel for the Respondent has not felt able to support the view, expressedby Lord Denning M.R., that apart from section 56 of the Law of PropertyAct, 1925, B is entitled to sue C at Common Law. Lord Erskine in Alley v. Deschamps [1806], 13 Ves. Recently in Bagot's case (supra) the learned Chief Justice of Australia. But this ancient doctrine that you must be named as party to the indentureto take an immediate benefit by grant, or as a covenantee, was by the 17thcentury regarded as archaic for in 1673 we find it being very strictlyconstrued ; the rule was held only to apply to indenture inter partes. 615 at 621): " In my judgment, section 56 does not have this effect. This was followed by Drive Yourself Hire Co. v. Strutt [1954]1 Q.B. ViscountSimonds who at first instance had given consideration to the section (seeWhite v. Bijou Mansions [1937] Ch. 284." in Lloyd's v. Harper 16 C.D. In Keenan v. Handley the Court enforced an agreement providing thebenefit of an annuity in favour of a mother who was a party to the agreementand, after her death, to her child, who was not a party to it. In 1844 Parliament abrogated this rule by section 11 of the Transfer ofProperty Act, 1844, which enacted: " 11. I agree with the comment ofWindeyer J. in the case of Bagot's Executor and Trustee Co. Ltd. v. Coulls inthe High Court of Australia that the words of Lush L.J. As appears from the Speech of Viscount Simondsthe 1925 Act was preceded by two Law of Property Acts, one in 1922 and onein 1924 which by amendments paved the way for the consolidation of thelaw of property in the 1925 Act. ". In these circumstances the presumption is that such an Act isnot intended to alter the law, but this prima facie view must yield to plainwords to the contrary (Gray v. Inland Revenue Commissioners [1960] A.C.1.Viscount Simonds page 13). C has received all the property;justice demands that he pay the price and this can only be done in thecircumstances by equitable relief. In the first place, I do not accept the view that damages must be nominal.Lush L.J. Unsatisfactoryas I find the limited meaning given to the words by the above cases, it isa possible meaning. In White v. BijouMansions Ltd. [1937] Ch. If all of them are not satisfied thenthe section has no application and the parties are left to their remedies atcommon law. supported by consideration or under seal.

I draw the inference that it never occurred to thosedistinguished equity judges who tried that case that there could be anydifficulty in making an order upon C at the instance of A to pay B. Theorder in that case is to be found in that great Book of Authority, Seton onJudgments and Orders (see 7th edition volume 3 page 2212). The uncle died and the widow became his administratrix. who quotes the relevant passage fromthe judgment of Sargant J. This again shews the extent ofthe power of equity to assist the Common Law, limited only by canons ofcommon sense and the practical limitations on the power to oversee andadminister specific performance decrees. The legal position isthat prima facie the duty of Al is to carry out her intestate's contracts andcompel C to pay B; but the creditors may be pressing and the agreementmay be considered onerous; so it may be her duty to try and compromisethe agreement with C and save something for the estate even at the expenseof B. Whether they received them or not depended onwhether the other partners were willing to pay or if they did not pay whetherthe deceased partner's executor was willing to enforce the contract. Pitman, though not named as a party,signed sealed and delivered the deed. I agree with him in thinking that the Respondent is entitled to succeedon this branch of the case. Peter Beswick was a coal merchant. As I have already said, the question" is elementary.". Well, if Davies, senior, would have been entitled to sue in his" lifetime if the annuities were then payable, his executors would have" the same right of action after his death. damages. I consider it to be an established rule of law that where a contract" is made with A for the benefit of B, A can sue on the contract for the" benefit of B and recover all that B could have recovered if the" contract had been made with B himself.". Thepoint if valid applies to an action for specific performance by A just as muchas by A1 yet in the authorities I have quoted no such point was ever taken;in Drimmie v. Davies (supra) indeed the action was by executors. On this question we were referred to thewell known dictum of Lush L.J. On the principle. But I note, however, that in Lloyds v. Harper (supra) James andCotton L.JJ. 500 at 514 and White v. John Warwick & Co. [1953]1 W.L.R. The history of these cases was summed up by Grossman J. inRe Foster 159 L.T. Indeed, I believe" that it is admitted that such an action would lie, but that it would" only result in nominal damages. But how narrow this rule was, but equally, how well understood, willalso be shewn by those authorities. Thecondition as to payment of an annunity to the widow personally was valid.The estate (though not the widow personally) can enforce it. Then, after referring to the case of Adderley v. Dixon, he continued: " Applying this to the present case, leaving the plaintiff to proceed" at Law and to get damages at once for all the breaches that might occur" during the joint lives of her and the defendant, would, in effect, be" altering the entire nature of the contract that she entered into : it would" be compelling her to accept a certain sum, a sum to be ascertained by" the conjecture of a jury as to what was the value of the annuity. In Hohler v. Aston [1920] 2 Ch. It … Od. By express provision in the definition section a definition contained in it is not to be applied to the word defined if in the particular case the context otherwise requires. While in the circumstances it is not necessary to express any concludedopinion thereon, if the learned Lord Justice was expressing a view on thepurely common law remedy of damages I have some difficulty in going allthe way with him. ", As the preamble to the 1925 Act shows, it was an Act "to consolidate" the enactments relating to conveyancing and the law of property in England" and Wales ". I assume that A has not made himself a trustee for X, because it was not argued in this appeal that any trust had been created. On referring to section 56 it will be seenthat the definition section 205 is the section which creates the difficulty.Apart from this section it would have been proper, according to the ejusdemgeneris rule, to construe " or other property " in section 56 as referring toreal property to which its predecessor in section 5 of the 1845 Act was limited.It may be that the draftsman in incorporating the wide definition of" property " into section 56 had overlooked the result which it would haveon the effect of this section by extending it beyond its predecessor. Itrefers to any " agreement over or respecting land or other property ". Holding that the section has such an effect would involve holding that the invariable practice of Parliament has been departed from per incuriam so that something has got into this consolidation Act which neither the draftsman nor Parliament can have intended to be there. & C. 353 there was an. There is abundant authority to support that proposition. Check the source file (free) and then … Beswick v Beswick [1968] AC 58. One cannot deny that the view of Lord Denning, M.R., expressed soforcibly, not for the first time, in his judgment in this case, reinforced by theopinion of Danckwerts L.J., in this case, is of great weight notwithstandingthat it runs counter to the opinion of all the other judges who have beenfaced by the task of interpreting this remarkable section, viz. It wouldsubvert the law as set out in Tweddle v. Atkinson (1861) 1 B. If "land or other property" means the same thing as "tenements or hereditaments" in the Act of 1845 then this section simply continues the law as it was before the Act of 1925 was passed, for I do not think that the other differences in phraseology can be regarded as making any substantial change. . But when the money payment is not made once and for all but in thenature of an annuity there is an even greater need for equity to come to theassistance of the Common Law. House of Lords The facts are stated in the judgement of Lord Reid. andDanckwerts L.J. Rep. 176 a very familiartype of case where the parties in a firm agreed together to pay annuitiesto the dependents of a partner when he should die. Holmes L.J. So it is saidnominal damages are adequate and the remedy of specific performance oughtnot to be granted. . Absurd results would follow if a defendant wereentitled to lead evidence to show that it would pay the plaintiff better notto sue for specific performance of, say, the sale of a house because the plaintiffcould sell it for a higher price to someone else. On the other hand in Bagot'scase (supra) a survey of the cases from Tudor times led Windeyer J. to adifferent conclusion, namely that " the law was not in fact ' settled ' either" way during the two hundred years before 1861. REASONABLE NOTICE OF TERMS It is a concept under standard form of contract. I had thought from what Lord Simonds said in White's case that section 5 of the Act of 1845 did enable certain persons to take benefits which they could not have taken without it. I am compelled to the conclusion that Parliament certainly did not intendto effect the suggested innovation. It is argued that the Court should be deterred from making the order,because there will be technical difficulties in enforcing it. Section 56, like its pre-decessors, was only intended to sweep away the old common law rule thatin an indenture inter partes the covenantee must be named as a party to theindenture to take the benefit of an immediate grant or the benefit of a coven-ant ; it intended no more. In thepresent case I think it clear that the parties to the agreement intended thatthe Respondent should receive the weekly sums of £5 in her own behoofand should not be accountable to her deceased husband's estate for them.Indeed the contrary was not argued. It would mean that the appellant keeps the business which he bought and for which he has only paid a small part of the price which he agreed to pay. (as he then was). cit. Perhaps more important is the fact that the section does not say that a person may take the benefit of an agreement although he was not a party to it: it says that he may do so although he was not named as a party in the instrument which embodied the agreement. So an agreement between Aand B that A will use certain personal property for the benefit of X wouldbe within the scope of the section, but an agreement that if A performscertain services for B, B will pay a sum to X would not be within the scopeof the section. Arnie Beswick's accomplishments on and off the track have left an iundelible mark on drag racing. 5 Treitel, op. Section 56 was obviously intended to replace section 5 of the RealProperty Act 1845 (8 and 9 Vict. 438 which gave the orthodox view of the section. 5449) it impliedly rejected the revolutionary view, for it recommendedthat—, " Where a contract by its express terms purports to confer a benefit" directly on a third party, it shall be enforceable by the third party in" his own name.". And, if one had to contemplate a further long period of Parliamentary procrastination, this House might find it necessary to deal with this matter. and MPH records, his accolades include induction into the Super Stock Magazine A/FX and Funny Car Hall of Fame in 1995, recipient of the prestigious Driver of the Year Award in 1996 and induction into the Division 3 Hall of Fame. Re Sinclair [1938]Ch 199 is perhaps distinguishable on its facts for the insurance company paidthe money into Court and it was therefore difficult for the infant to showany title thereto but in so far as Sir Christopher Farwell held at the endof his judgment that if the money had been paid to the infant he wouldhold it as constructive trustee for the estate of the godfather, I disagree withhim. However, the definition section, if it isto be applied expressly, refers to property as including " any interest in" real or personal property". If A sues for damages for breach of contract by reasonof the failure to pay B he must prove his loss; that may be great ornominal according to circumstances. 482. Atkinson (sup. 5449): "That where a contract by its express terms purports to confer a benefit directly on a third party it shall be enforceable by the third party in his own name ..." (p. 31). You weren’t expected to. It is contended that the Order of the Court of Appeal is wrong and thereshould be no specific performance because the condition that the Defendantshould pay off two named creditors has been omitted, and there can be noenforcement of part of the contract. The first isKeenan v. Handley 12 W.R. 930 and on appeal 2 De G.J. A useful summary of the opinions contained in thecases is contained at page 621 where Wynn-Parry cited a passage from In reFoster [1938] 159 L.T. If the matter stopped there it would not be difficult to hold that section 56does not substantially extend or alter the provisions of section 5 of the1845 Act. in the Court of Appeal,was not expressed to be " inter partes " in any strict sense, a matter of funda-mental importance when I come to consider the impact of section 56 of theLaw of Property Act, 1925, upon this appeal. Thirdly, it is said that. If the section was mentioned it is not easyto see from the report that it played a great part in the case. If the definition is not applied thesection is a proper one to appear in such an Act because it can properlybe regarded as not substantially altering the pre-existing law. Cited – White v Bijou Mansions ChD ([1937] Ch 610) It is no partof the law that in order to sue on a contract one must establish that it is inone's interest to do so. But I do not find this difficult. I had thought fromwhat Lord Simonds said in White's case that section 5 of the 1845 Act didenable certain persons to take benefits which they could not have takenwithout it. I think Mr. " Stone's contention really amounts to this, that an agreement by A. " In return, the nephew promised him that he would, after the uncles's death, pay €5 per week to his widow. running with the land. The defendant" would thereby escape from paying what he had undertaken to pay by" making an illusory payment never contemplated by either party. In Smith and Snipes Hall Farm Ltd v River Douglas Catchment Board Denning L.J., after stating his view that a third person can sue on a contract to which he is not a party, referred to section 56 as a clear statutory recognition of this principle, with the consequence that Miller's case was wrongly decided. He died, and the nephew only paid his aunt once before stating that no contract existed between them.

Parliamentary Archives,HL/PO/JU/4/3/114 9, Lord ReidLord HodsonLord GuestLord PearceLord Upjohn, Before 1962 the Respondent's deceased husband carried on business as acoal merchant. I should not be prepared to give it my support without" a greater knowledge than I at present possess of its operation in other" systems of law. If the words of the Act are only capable of one meaningwe must give them that meaning no matter how they got there. I think, as he does, that thecontext does otherwise require a limited meaning to be given to the word" property " in the section. Such a principle would be repugnantto justice and fulfil no other object than that of aiding the wrongdoer. 615 Wynn-Parry J. took the view that section56 had not the effect of creating rights, but only of effecting the protectionof rights shown to exist (at page 622). I am not sure that any conflicts with the view which I have expressed: but if any does, for example. said, in rejecting the same argument as Simonds J. hadrejected: " before he can enforce it he must be a person who falls within the" scope and benefit of the covenant according to the true construction" of the document in question.". Yet theterms of section 56 (1) are far from clear and appear to be simply an enlarge-ment of a section passed 80 years before. do not refer to section 56. He agreed to sell his business to his nephew, the respondent, if he paid him a certain sum of money for as long as he lived, and then to pay his wife (the appellant) £5 per week for the rest of her life after he died. Opinion for Beswick v. Maguire, 748 A.2d 701 — Brought to you by Free Law Project, a non-profit dedicated to creating high quality open legal information. He agreed with the defendant to transfer his business’ goodwill and tools to the defendant. cannot be acceptedwithout qualification and regardless of context and also with his statement: " I can see no reason why in such cases the damages which A would" suffer upon B's breach of his contract to pay C $500 would be merely" nominal: I think that in accordance with the ordinary rules for the" assessment of damages for breach of contract they could be substan-" tial. It repealed section 5 ofthe Act of 1845 and replaced it by section 56 (1) in these terms: " a person may taken an immediate or other interest in land or other" property, or the benefit of any condition, right of entry, covenant or" agreement over or respecting land or other property, although he may" not be named as a party to the conveyance or other instrument: ...". Date of Delivery: 27.01.2017. The argument for the Appellant is that A's only remedy is to sue Bfor damages for B's breach of contract in failing to pay the £1,000 to X.Then the Appellant says that A can only recover nominal damages of 40s.because the fact that X has not received the money will generally causeno loss to A: he admits that there may be cases where A would sufferdamage if X did not receive the money but says that the present is notsuch a case. In any event on the facts of this case there is no suggestion thatthere are any unpaid creditors and B is sole next of kin, so the point isacademic. to solve this question. Peter Beswick was a coal merchant. Sir Garfield Berwick, in commenting on the report of the Court of Appeal's, " I would myself, with great respect, agree with the conclusion that" where A promises B for a consideration supplied by B to pay C that" B may obtain specific performance of A's promise, at least where" the nature of the consideration given would have allowed the debtor to" have obtained specific performance. If that were so, I shall assume that he is right in maintaining that the administratrix could then only recover nominal damages because his breach of contract has caused no loss to the estate of her deceased husband. Of course not; he, C, has no interest in the estate; he cannot plead apossible jus tertii which is no concern of his. But the view more commonly held in recent times has been that such a contract confers no right on X and that X could not sue for the £1,000. Before the Court of Appeal in Midland Silicones Ltd. v. ScruttonsLtd. I canfind no ground on which such a principle should exist. Thatcase seems to me dead in point and I do not accept the argument that themother was contracting as trustee for her son; such a relationship cannotbe spelt out of Captain Hundley's letter. So this obligation of B must be enforceable either by X or by A. I shall leave aside for the moment the question whether section 56 (1) of the Law of Property Act 1925, has any application to such a case, and consider the position at common law. The land issomething which existed before and independently of the agreement andthe same must apply to the other property.

By section 205 (l)(xx) " unless the context otherwise requires"..."' property' includes anything in action and any interest in real or" personal property ". Nor didLuxmoore J. so find in Re Ecclesiastical Commissioners for England'sConveyance [1936] 2 Ch. Held: A plaintiff is entitled to no more than nominal damages in respect of the defendant’s breach of a contract where the plaintiff himself has . I would not venture to criticise it, but I do not think it necessary for me to consider it if it leads to the conclusion that section 56 taken by itself would not assist the present respondent. In construing any Act of Parliament we are seeking the intention ofParliament and it is quite true that we must deduce that intention from thewords of the Act. in that case in his speech, it soexactly expresses my own view that I set it out again. 351. He has refused to do so andhe maintains that the Respondent's only right is to sue him for damagesfor breach of his contract. To sum up this matter: had C repudiated the contract in the lifetime ofA the latter would have had a cast iron case for specific performance. Kay J. said in Hart v. Hart 18 C.D. Mr. Paul Beswick and Terrence Ballantyne, instructed by Ballantyne, Beswick & L Co. for the Claimants. Sir Frederick Liddell, SirBenjamin Cherry and Sir Claud Schuster gave evidence. page 100 and of Uthwatt J. at [1943] Ch.366 unsatisfactory. I do not profess to have a full understanding of the old English law regarding deeds. In anyevent the fact that there is a small element of personal service in a contractof this nature does not destroy that quality of mutuality (otherwise plainlypresent) want of which may in general terms properly be a ground for refusinga decree of specific performance. Accordingly, in my view, section 56 does not have anyrelevance in this case. And even if they have not, a party is entitled to waive a conditionwhich is wholly in his favour; and its omission cannot be used by theDefendant as a ground for not performing his other parts of the contract.It is unnecessary, therefore, to consider in what circumstances a contractmay be enforced in part. Before further considering the meaning of section 56 (1) I must set out briefly the views which have been expressed about it in earlier cases. What then is A's position? That section provided: "That, under an indenture, executed after October 1, 1845, an immediate estate or interest, in any tenements or hereditaments, and the benefit of a condition or covenant, respecting any tenements or hereditaments, may be taken, although the taker thereof be not named a party to the same indenture. Having regard to the law previous to 1925 and to the expressions of judicialopinion since, I cannot think that Parliament intended to make such a clean-sweep of the previous law as the Respondent's construction of section 56would involve.
