Judgement for the case Errington v Errington

 P was the representative of X who had told Ds that if they paid off the mortgage on his house then they could have the house. They began to pay off the mortgage. P tried to revoke the offer, once X had died. The CA held that a unilateral contract could not be revoked once the offerees had commenced performance, provided their performance was not left “incomplete and underperformed”- Per Lord Denning
