    Post: Contract law

    Posted by Jenna on 5/10/10

    I'm stumped...I don't believe that novation can help her,
    because the crux of novation is assent, and the
    father-in-law doesn't want to pay the mortgage. However,
    what about third party beneficiary?

    Gladys and Sam married. When they bought a house, Sam's
    father signed the mortgage note with them, and made the
    monthly house payments. Several years later, Gladys moved
    out of the house and Sam's father stopped making the monthly
    payments. Shirley moved into the house with Sam, but they
    did not make any payments on the house mortgage. The
    mortgage company told Gladys to make the payments. Gladys
    took a business law course many years before and remembers
    the terms third-party beneficiary, and novation. Can either
    of these principles help her?
