Would you contemplate signing a contract if you had not read the terms and conditions?  The case of Fraine v Foy (2021) illustrates the consequences.

Even though it was Mr Foy's case that he had only been presented with the signatory page, the Judge reached a finding that Mr Foy had (1) signed the contract and (2) he had been afforded an opportunity to read and consider the terms of the contract.

As a result, Mr Foy was bound by the terms of the contract, and a sum of almost half a million pounds was due to Mr Fraine.

Before entering into a contract relationships with others - whether as part of a business investment, or like in this case, even as a loan between friends - you should seek independent legal advice.
