Judgement for the case Bratton Seymour Service v Oxborough

C claimed that courts should imply a term into articles of association to effect that a company should contribute to upkeep of an amenity area in a housing development, so as to give articles business efficacy. Held:
·        Courts will not imply terms into articles from extrinsic evidence of surrounding circumstances.
Ø  This because such evidence is only known to a few people.
Ø  Thus would be prejudicial to third parties.
