Abstract

Joseph Mathew v Singh Chiranjeev [2010] 1 SLR 338 presented a rare opportunity for the Court of Appeal to address the complex provision as to formalities for contracts for the sale or disposition of land or interests in land that is s 6(d) of the Civil Law Act (Cap 43, 1999 Rev Ed). The case is doubly interesting (and important) because it also addresses how the statutory provision may be satisfied by electronic communications such as e-mail. The court also considers and rejects the case for consigning the doctrine of part performance to the history books.
