QUESTION #1 Francine, of Francine’s Used Car Dealership, offered to sell her used car to Beth at a price of $5,000 in a letter mailed October 1. The letter arrived at Beth’s office on October 3, but at the time it arrived Beth was out of town on a business trip. On October 7 Wendy made Francine’s an offer to buy the same car that Francine’s had previously offered to Beth. Wendy offered to pay $5,250 for the car. Francine’s accepted Wendy’s offer and the deal was recorded in writing and signed by both parties on October 8 . Beth returned from her business trip on October 21. After reading Francine’s offer, Beth mailed her acceptance back. On October 22, hearing that Beth was now back from her trip, Francine’s telephoned to revoke the offer. Francine’s received Beth’s letter of acceptance on October 24. a) 10 MARKS 15 MINUTES Assess Francine’s potential legal liability to Beth and Wendy, giving full reasons for your answer. b) 10 MARKS 15 MINUTES Assume that Francine’s and Beth have a contract. According to their contract Beth was to pay a deposit of $2500 and another $2500 when she came to pick up the car. The radio in the car did not work and part of the contract was that Francine’s would repair it before Beth picked up the car. Francine’s called Beth on October 30 to say the radio was fixed and the car was ready to go. That night the car was stolen from Francine’s garage and has not been found. Beth insists that Francine’s return her $2500. Francine’s insists that Beth pay the remaining $2500. Who is likely to win this dispute? c) 10 MARKS 15 MINUTES Assume the same facts as in part b) above but that the car was not tholen. Beth picked up the car on October 30 and paid the balance owing. On November 5 , Beth was driving out to UBC and suddenly noticed smoke coming out of the front of the car. She managed to make it to a garage where she was told that the engine needed to be replaced and the repairs would cost $3000.
