(1) Subject to the provisions of this Act, a person who is not a party to a contract (a “ third party ”) may in his own right enforce a term of the contract if— (a) the contract expressly provides that he may, or (b) subject to subsection (2), the term purports to confer a benefit on him. The old general rule was that only a party to a contract could enforce its terms; anyone else (a “third party”) could not. The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 (“the Act”) changed this by enabling third parties, in certain cases, to enforce terms in contracts made in their favour. However, the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 may now allow a third party to enforce a term as if it were a party to the contract. This will be possible where: 1) the term to be enforced purports to confer a benefit on the third party, or 2) the term to be enforced expressly provides that it may be enforced by the third party.
