What am I required to do in this assignment?

There are three parts to this assessment and all are equally weighted constituting 100% of the overall unit grade.

You must answer all three parts of this assessment.

PART 1

Sergio made the following promises:

(a)     To give his son Alexander £5,000 if he abandoned his career as a chef and qualified as a solicitor;

(b)     To pay his secretary Liam £500 for having been willing to give up his lunch hour when necessary during the previous three months;

(c)     To pay Natasha, who has a contract with a local newsagent to deliver newspaper in the area, £10 if she delivers it by 8am every day for one month and if she manages to put the newspaper through the letterbox without tearing.

Discuss with reference to case law whether the promises are binding or not.

PART 2

Two weeks ago, Samantha, went to her local bank, Extortionate PLC, inquiring about a loan which she needed for her new business start-up.

As Samantha was leaving the bank she tripped and fell down the stairs where the carpet had come away significantly at the sides. To break her fall Samantha put her hands out in front of her. She subsequently broke her wrist and injured her hands further on some exposed nails at the bottom of the stairs.

One of Samantha’s friends messaged her a few days later to tell her that she was not the only one to have fallen down the stairs and that it had been raised with Extortionate PLC before. She sent Samantha a link to the banks social media accounts where there were lots of clients claiming similar injuries.

Under the doctrine of tort consider whether Extortionate PLC is liable for Samantha’s injury.

PART 3
