Any term in a contract trying to restrict liability for death or personal injury is regarded as unfair and therefore not valid.

It considers the different types of situations in which exemption clauses fall within it, under different sections (eg s2 negligence, s3 written standard terms of business, s6 and s7 goods contracts), and the.

Words15 Pages Introduction In the present essay the problem covered will be The Unfair Contract Terms Actknown as UCTA and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulationsknown as UTCCR. As things stand at present, consumers are faced with two pieces of legislation in a vital area of contracts.

Sensibly, the UK Parliament decided to tackle what was becoming the Wild West of contractual terms and passed the Unfair Contract Terms Act which made such attempts to evade liability automatically void. Generally speaking, the Act made it much harder (but not impossible) for businesses to impose other unfair terms on consumers.

An exclusion clause is a term in a contract purporting to exclude or restrict the liability of one or more parties to the contract for breach of obligation.

Exclusion clauses are controlled by common law and statute. The Unfair Contract Terms Act (UCTA ) and the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations (UTCCR ) confine the extent to which. The enactment of the Unfair Contract Terms Act (UCTA) was a key point to English Contract Law.

UCTA enabled courts to regulate unfair exclusion and limitation clauses by rendering some ineffective and by subjecting others to the reasonableness test. The Unfair Contract Terms Act is a British Act of Parliament (, c 50) which regulates contract s by restricting the operation and legality of some contract extends to nearly all forms of contract and one of its most important functions is limiting the applicability of disclaimer s of title is misleading as it creates obligation in tort and contract.

The Law of Contract offers a clear, non-technical explanation of the principles of contract law combined with a focus on case summaries throughout. The book's strengths lie in the authors' highly praised explanation of the law, their ability to demystify difficult concepts without losing academic rigour, and use of case summaries, quotations, and analysis to explain the law of contract.

The Unfair Contract Terms Act regulates clauses that exclude or limit terms implied by the common law or statute. Its general pattern is that if clauses restrict liability, particularly negligence, of one party, the clause must pass the "reasonableness test" in section 11 and Schedule looks at the ability of either party to get insurance, their bargaining power and their.The Unfair Contract Terms Act applies only to liability arising in the course of a business and in relation to liability arising towards other businesses.

It does not therefore provide comprehensive protection against unfair terms. Also it provides for specific instances of unfair terms. In particular, penalty clauses are outside its remit.UNFAIR CONTRACT TERMS ACT The Unfair Contract Terms Act is aimed at bridging the recognised gap between the classical theory of contract law and the social reality.

[1] The theory conceived of contract as an empty form that the parties might use to create mutual rights and obligations as they wished. Of course the parties.
