Inntrepreneur Pub Company v East Crown Ltd

15 September 2000
The issues

The effect of an entire agreement clause on the giving of a collateral warranty

The facts

NB – this case is now relevant to some credit hire cases and is already being used by one or two credit hire companies to argue their way out of the Defendant’s contention “Claimant was told he would not have to pay”).

The decision

An entire agreement cause did not merely render evidence of the giving of a collateral warranty inadmissible – it deprived what would otherwise have been valid collateral warranty of its legal effect.

I am not reporting it in any detail. You can read the case in the Times for yourself if you wish.


NB. However this case does not take into account the operation of U.C.T.A in cases where the consumer is dealing with a commercial entity (which is not the case here) nor does it take into account the interpretative effect of Zoan.

The disappearance of LIBOR

Companies should undertake a comprehensive review and audit to identify those products and legacy contracts that are LIBOR-linked and carry out an in-depth risk assessment of discontinuation. Where possible, companies should look at appointing an individual to oversee the programme.
