Lease arrangement rectified

If two parties agree what the legal consequences of a contract should be, English courts might be able to rectify any defective provisions of the contract that are at variance with those shared aims.

However this did not seem to apply where one or more of the parties had deliberately added or omitted the relevant wording.

However a recent case has confirmed that the omission of a document left out could be rectified by the court where such omission was deliberate but based on the mistaken belief that the document was not actually necessary to meet the parties’ shared objectives for their lease contract.
