Examination Timing: 00H01M21S

John, a lawyer for Company X, negotiates a sale agreement to purchase the shares in Company Y. During the preparation of the final execution version, John amends one of its non-substantial provisions to reflect an agreed term, but this amendment does not have the intended effect. Both parties sign the document.

The contract is likely to be enforceable. If a mistake in a contract is not an essential or radical difference in its subject matter (Kyle Bay Ltd v Underwriters [2007] EWCA Civ 57), does not invalidate the transaction (Fender v National Westminster Bank Plc [2008] EWHC 2242), and is still capable of being performed (Great Peace Shipping Ltd v Tsavliris Salvage Ltd [2002] EWCA Civ 1407), then the contract will still be enforceable. 

Key Point: A mistake in a contract that does not fundamentally alter the nature of the agreement and still allows for performance does not render the contract void or voidable.
