Contracts - Agreements to Agree

Nordlund Family Retreat Inc. v. Plominski (Ont CA, 2014)

In this case the Court of Appeal discusses the law applicable to cases of 'agreements to agree', ie. where an initial arrangement is made which is intended to be later embodied in a more formal written agreement. The case is useful reading on such situations and also on basic principles of contract formation regarding certainty of terms [see esp paras 52-59].
