contract, which allows parties to provide for the terms and conditions that will govern the relationship. The legal rights and obligations of contracting parties are regulated by the provisions of the Act. However, as emphasised in the case of Ooi Boon Long & Ors v Citibank NA (PC) [1984] , contracting parties should be able to expressly contract out of the provisions of the Act unless the provision in question expressly or impliedly prevents the parties from doing so. ( Whether to contract out from the whole Contracts Act 1950 or just part of the session are up to the party. ) However, this is not definite because there is another contradict case, Lee Poh Choo v South East Asia (SEA) in Housing Corporation Sdn Bhd , where the court held that the developer could not contract out of the Housing Development ( Control and Licensing ) Act 1966 ( “the Act” ) because: The CA 1950 is a general provision and the Housing Development Act 1966 is the specific provision.The general provision may not be able to cover all of the aspects.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
