Contract - Sale of land - Construction - Conditional agreement for sale of land by vendor depending upon grant of planning permission to purchaser - Purchaser assigning rights under agreement to defendant without vendor's knowledge - Grant of planning permission to defendant - Judge finding agreement not rendered unconditional where vendor unaware of defendant's identity - Whether judge in error.
On the true construction of a conditional agreement for the sale of land, the vendor's obligation under the contract had not been triggered by the grant of planning permission as the vendor had not been aware that the purchaser's interest had been assigned to the defendant, and the planning application had been made by the defendant rather than the original purchaser assumed in the contract.
