Abstract

This article examines the difficulties with the presumption/rebuttal model to assess intention to create legal relations in contract law. It explores the blurred boundaries between domestic and commercial agreements, proposing a new framework. This, we suggest, would mitigate the problems seen in the case law to date and ensure the doctrine is fit for the 21st century.
