Do we have a legally binding contract?
Dixon, William M. (2004) Do we have a legally binding contract? The Queensland Lawyer, 24(5), pp. 235-237.
Legal advisers are often called upon to advise whether informal correspondence between clients may give rise to a binding contract. The decision of Mullins J in Teviot Downs Estate Pty Ltd v MTAA Superannuation Fund (Flagstone Creek and Spring Mountain Park) Property Pty Ltd  QSC 403 provides general guidance as to matters that may be relevant when faced with this thorny issue.

Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
