Barto v GPR Mgmt Services Pty Ltd: It is true that an employment contract does not immediately produce income but the creation of the contract is commercial conduct, it is directed to the creation of the contractual relationship.

How does the sale fit into the totality of D’s activities? (Lubidineuse, CC). How the land is used and will be used?
1. One unit is being sold by the owner occupier as a private sale: Directly apply O’Brien – there is no misleading or deceptive conduct because the sale of a home cannot be classified as a trade or commerce
2. Another unit is being sold by the real estate agent on behalf of an owner occupier. RA also claims the view can never be built out: RA is liable but the principal, is not because provided that the principal is not selling the property as part of the business in trade or commerce (Arguie v Bluntz)
3. Two units are owned by a vendor who lives in one and rents out another. Assures Betty and Jim that the view could never be built out: It is possible to suggest that the one who lives in has a private sale exemption (Arguie, O’Brien) therefore, not in trade or commerce.

    The area of law to be discussed would be implied 'terms of a contract which are not agreed by the parties.' They are terms which are related to 'contingencies which might affect the contract of employment in this case.' This is what 'parties intended but left unwritten in the gap of a contract.' There are five conditions by which a contract would be satisfied before a term would be implied. They are 'reasonable and equitable, necessary to give business efficacy so no term will be implied if contract is effective without it, obvious, clear expression and not contradict any express term of the contract.' The analysis would address the viability of imported terms, implied terms, crystallised customs and the decisions of various cases.…

    1. Generally, agents are under a duty to obey the lawful and reasonable instructions of the principal. Where the principal's instructions are clear, the agent does not normally have any discretion and must follow those instructions, unless an agent is a professional and the principal relies on the agent to exercise his professional skill and discretion in accomplishing the tasks he has been appointed to accomplish. However, if the principal's instructions are ambiguous or if the agent is not certain as to their meanings, the agent should clarify such instructions with the principal before acting. An agent is obligated to obey promptly and efficiently all lawful instructions of his principal. However, this duty plainly does not include an obligation to obey any unlawful instructions; for example, an instruction not to market the property to minorities or to misrepresent the condition of the property. Compliance with instructions the agent knows to be unlawful could constitute a breach of an agent’s duty of loyalty. The relationship between an…
