    of the Contract There is a further complication to Stephanie’s claim to the barge - did the agreement she made with Wangle constitute a valid land contract? There are formal requirements that must be met under the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989, s. 2 which states that a contract for the sale of land “can only be made in writing and only by incorporating all the terms which the parties have expressly agreed in one document or, where contracts are exchanged, in each. The minimum terms required are the parties, the property and consideration (Rossiter v Miller [1878] 3 App Cas 1124). The parties in this instance, Stephanie and Wangle, did not exchange identical documents but rather exchanged two separate letters. Stephanie’s letter did include the three minimum terms required and was signed by her; however, there is no indication that Wangle signed this document, as is required by the Law of Property (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1989 s 3 nor did he exchange an identical document signed by himself. The letter that he provided did not set out the terms and from the facts presented, does not appear to have signed the letter either. In Keay v Morris Homes (West Midlands) Ltd. [2012] Lord Justice Rimer stated that the effect of section 2 is merciless and that without all the expressly agreed terms and a signed document, there is no valid contract. The agreement between Stephanie and Wangle did not comply with section 2, and as the formalities of land…
