Dominion Building Corp Ltd vThe King [1933] AC 533


P offered in writing to buy property from D. In the offer it specified that P did not need to be notified of acceptance, and that an Order of Council would constitute acceptance. An Order of Council was passed.


Is communicating acceptance required to have a binding contract?


No, it may be waived in the offer by specifying another means of acceptance.


While the language in the offer is not precise, it's straightforward meaning is that an Order in Council would be sufficient to constitute acceptance.


Appeal dismissed in favour of D.
