Chapter 2: LIABILITY FOR PRE-CONTRACTUAL STATEMENTS

A Practitioner’s Guide to the Project Lifecycle

Steven Baker, Lawrence Akka and Rachel Glass

Extract

During the course of negotiations leading up to the conclusion of a contract, and commonly in any invitation to tender and related documentation, the prospective parties exchange information as to their needs and capabilities in relation to the project. It is frequently intended that the other party will rely upon statements made during the process. On occasion, such statements turn out to be false. This chapter analyses the potential liability of a party for making false statements at the pre-contractual stage and the potential remedies available to the other party.
