Sale of land Contract. The proceedings concerned the alleged purchase by the claimants of shares in rooms in a hotel block. The six claimants sought declarations that there had been no contract between them and the defendant company or, alternatively, alternatively recision of any contract, for the purchase of the leases, and for the refund of deposits paid by them to the defendant. The Chancery Division held that, among other things, valid contracts had existed between the defendant and four of the six claimants. The second and third defendants' contracts would not be considered valid, as they had never become parties to the proposed contracts.
