Something of value in the eyes of law); however, it is past consideration because Robert painted the house prior to Kim’s promise, and therefore it is not good consideration. He has not supported Kim’s promise with new consideration. If Kim had instead said, ‘Thank you, if you paint the door you have missed I will give you £100 as a present’, then Robert would provide fresh consideration to support the promise. In Eastwood v Kenyon (1840) 113 ER 482, the guardian of a girl borrowed money to finance her upbringing and education.

These will be explained below. Consideration must be sufficient ‘Consideration must be sufficient’ means that the consideration provided must be something of value in the eyes of the law. In White v Bluett (1853) 23 LJ Ex 36, the father was owed a sum of money by his son. The son was continually berating his father about how he managed his affairs. In order to silence his son, the father offered to write off the debt if the son would stop berating him. The court later held that the son could not enforce his father’s promise because his ceasing to berate his father was not something of value in the eyes of the law: in other words, it was not good consideration.

Traditionally, the party seeking to enforce the promise was unsuccessful. To find solutions to these problems we will look at the development of practical benefit and the doctrine of promissory estoppel. The law also requires the contracting parties to intend to enter into a legal relationship; without such intention, the agreement is not enforceable. Finally, we will look at the requirement that the parties have the capacity to contract.
