Hire-purchase - Agreement - Sale of goods - Motor vehicle - W trading in cars - W undertaking fraudulent activity - Claimant seeking to establish whether it or defendants bearing loss - Burden on claimant to demonstrate parties manifesting intention to create legal relationship - Judge finding defendants contracting to sell vehicles to claimant - Whether claimant discharging burden of proof.
Hire-purchase Agreement. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, found that the judge had erred in finding that in each of the 12 claims before him the sending of the relevant invoice followed by the sending of a cheque in response thereto constituted a contract for the sale of the vehicle to which the invoice related. The claimant fell far short of discharging the burden which demonstrated that the parties had manifested an intention to create a legal relationship.
