The combined effect is that an owner/developer cannot retain any partial rights to bring an action, nor can it make a legal assignment of rights of action to several different purchasers or tenants. The assignment must be complete and to one party only. Obviously developers and clients are likely to be keen to retain the option of assigning the right to bring claims to a subsequent owner, but conversely the designer or contractor is more likely to want to restrict or preclude this right. For this reason most standard forms contain a restriction or prohibition on assignment.
2 Implied terms In addition to the interpretative rules outlined above, there are several mechanisms whereby terms, which the parties have not expressly set out, may be implied into a contract. A term can be implied ‘in fact’ or ‘in law’. Terms are implied in fact to give effect to the presumed but unexpressed intentions of the parties and will not be implied if they would contradict the express terms. They are implied on the basis of the particular circumstances of that contract and normally must survive a ‘test of necessity’; in other words, that without the implication the contract would be so unbusiness like that no sensible person would ever have agreed to it.
Normally contractual obligations are owed only to the client commissioning the design services, although collateral warranties, assignment, and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 may create liabilities to other parties (people other than the client) as well. In the UK there have traditionally been few legislative controls over the terms parties may agree (under the principle termed ‘freedom to contract’). This is in contrast to many other EU countries, where the obligations that may be agreed between parties are often highly regulated under the country’s Civil Code, so that the Code will be a primary reference in determining these obligations (see Chapters 17 and 18).
