Contract Paper Scenario
Paul and Priscilla Petersen purchased a single-family home from Danny Davidson. Paul and Danny were fraternity brothers and long-term friends, so they decided to enter into this contract without a written agreement.
The oral agreement provided that Paul and Priscilla will purchase the home for $250,000. As there was nothing in writing, Danny did not disclose that he had had a dispute with his neighbor, Ned, about a boundary for the south end of his property. Danny also failed to disclose some soil subsidence in the front yard, although he claims he did not know about the soil problem.
Paul and Priscilla were excited about their new home. They upgraded the bathroom by adding a tub and new Italian tile, which cost $50,000. Paul and Priscilla also installed $15,000 of new landscaping, which is when they learned about the soil problem. As a result of the soil problem, their new bathroom developed cracks and began to sink. Priscilla convinced Paul that they should sue Danny for breach of contract, even though they were friends. Accordingly, Paul and Priscilla sued Danny for breach of contract.
