Blog Bite: Can oral evidence be included if it contradicts the written evidence of the contract?

January 05, 2015

This article posted on our partner site discusses the main issue of whether extrinsic evidence should be considered if it contradicts the evidence of the contract. It was found that a collateral contract will not be admissible if it contradicts the main written contract. This is relevant for entire clause agreements because the court noted that there was no entire agreement clause, a term that no party can amend the agreement unless it is in writing was effectively an entire agreement clause.

This comes to you as a part of Clausehound’s exciting new collaboration with Mondaq!
