Undue influence

Updated: Aug 20, 2021

A form of moral pressure. A contract will not be enforced by a court if it can be shown that the defendant was in a position that prevented him forming a free and unfettered judgement. Undue influence will not be presumed unless certain relations, e.g. parental or confidential, exist between the parties.
