Transit systems, in which co-workers offer elevators inside and on the other of the work, are also used without the intention of creating legal relationships. It is thought that the situation is close to a friendship agreement and not a contractual commercial windfall. Commercial transactions confirm a strong presumption of a valid contract: these agreements, in which the parties act as if they were foreigners, are considered binding. However, the “honour clauses” in the “gentlemen`s agreements” are recognized as an honest intention to create legal relations, as in the Jones/Vernons pools (where the clause “This agreement is binding only in honour” was effective). You have to be careful not to be able to write a clause to try to exclude the jurisdiction of a court, because the clause is null and void, as in Baker/Jones.  If a contract has both an “honour clause” and a clause that attempts to exclude the jurisdiction of a court (as in Rose – Frank v Crompton) , the court may apply the blue pencil rule that excludes the insulting party. The court will then recognize the rest, if it still makes sense, and will remain in agreement with the parties` negotiations. The insulting clause was that the requirement of a willingness to establish legal relations in contract law must reflect common sense. If it is a commercial contract, the intent is presumed. Informal agreements with family and friends are presumed not to create intent and do not involve lawyers or courts. In assessing each case, the courts applied certain presumptions to different types of contracts; As a result, it was generally considered that national or social contracts had not been entered into with the intention of establishing legal relationships and it was considered that the trade agreements had such an intention.
However, the High Court of Australia recently indicated that conjecture in determining intent should not be taken into account – in any event, the intent must be demonstrated without the assistance of such presumptions. The courts have confirmed before the marital agreements between couples who will marry just before the marriage, which will happen in the event of a divorce from their property. Important: The law allows for both national and commercial presumptions about the intention to create legal relationships, to question, through the use of evidence, that there was an intention to create legal relations in the case of an internal agreement, or that there was no intention to establish legal relations in a trade agreement.
