Resolved Question:

English Law of Contract. I am qualified as an Aromatherapist. If someone comes to me and wants a free massage. I give it. Is there still an offer made and consideration given? Can't find the law on this.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help youIn order for there to be a contract there must be consideration. As it is free the courts may consider this not to be consideration because there is nothing given.The court however may consider time as consideration - because the customer has given up time.It's an interesting point as to whether time counts as consideration Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?Alex
