On October 16, 2018, the tenant served on April 25, 2019 a communication for the delivery of the lease. A conditional remission agreement was conditional on the tenant abandoning the blank property, but not on the condition that the tenant pay an unpaid sum for the work. The obligation to pay “the money due on completion” did not contain unpaid damages for compensation. So a remission agreement when paying “the money due on completion” did not require the tenant to pay such an amount. Until the completion date, the parties had not set an agreed amount due to the owner for construction defects. The lessor`s lawyers stated that payment of the full amount set out in the list of construction defects was necessary if the rebate were to take effect. In response to a request for an exact number, the landlord`s lawyers said: In 2013, Dreams plc entered the administration and the lease was transferred to the plaintiff tenant, Dreams Ltd. A remission agreement (the agreement) was then concluded between the new tenant and the lessor. The agreement gave each party the right to demand surrender with a period of six months. It also contained the following clauses: 20. Fourth, if common sense is a very important factor to be taken into account in the interpretation of a treaty, a court should reject the natural meaning of a provision as correct only because it seems that one of the parties agreed on this point very recklessly: and even ignore the benefit of the wisdom of retrospective. The purpose of the interpretation is to determine what the parties have agreed to, not what the court thinks they should have agreed to.
. As a result, when a judge interprets a contract, he or she should not rewrite it to help an ill-advised party or punish an intelligent party. “15. The purpose of interpreting a written contract is to determine the intention of the parties on the basis of `what a reasonable person, with all the substantive knowledge that would have been available to the parties, would have understood in order to use the language of the contract`, to quote Lord Hoffmann. And this, by focusing on the meaning of the relevant words. in their documentary, factual and commercial context. This importance must be assessed on the basis of (i) the natural and ordinary importance of the clause, (ii) all other relevant provisions of the lease, (iii) the overall purpose of the clause and the lease, (iv) the facts and circumstances known or adopted by the parties at the time of performance of the document, and (v) good business sense, but (vi) failure to comply with subjective evidence of a party`s intentions. . . .
