Lisa agrees to sell her antique vase to Sam for £500. They both sign a written agreement, but before Sam makes the payment, Lisa finds out that the vase is worth £5,000. Lisa informs Sam that she will not sell the vase as agreed. 

What should Sam do?

Sam can demand that Lisa honours the contract because sufficient consideration has been promised. In contract law, consideration must be sufficient but need not be adequate. The promise to pay £500, even if the vase is worth £5,000, constitutes sufficient consideration, creating a binding contract. 

Key Point: Consideration must be something of value in the eyes of the law. As long as consideration is present, it is legally sufficient to support a contract, regardless of its adequacy.
