Rebuttal - contract law

Rebuttal means that it is expected the presumption is not true.

The legal definition of rebuttal is that it is expected that the presumption is not true.


Legal intent can be rebutted; in the case of Rose and Frank v Crompton (1925) there was an honourable pledge clause (rebuttal) written into a contract .  This was later confirmed in the case of Kleinwort Benson v Malaysia Mining Corporation (1989). In this case the courts found that there is no legal and contractual obligation but only a moral obligation or gentleman's agreement.

Contracts can be made unenforceable by Act of Parliament.  Section 29 of the Post Office Act 1969 illustrates that by accepting letters and parcels it does not create a contract between the post office and the the puplic who have posted the mail.
