Before you enter into a heads of agreement, you should work out whether an objective third party would consider your agreement to agree to be an agreed agreement or merely an agreement to agree on an agreed agreement pending agreement or a duck.
This is the second blog I have done on heads of agreement. The reason I have decided to do another blog on the topic is because they keep being disputed in court and they continue to be an issue of contention in the business world.

In deciding whether the heads of agreement was merely an agreement to negotiate a contract or an enforceable contract, the Supreme Court looked at the objective intention of the parties at the time the agreement was entered into. Ultimately the Court decided that the heads of agreement constituted no more than an agreement to negotiate in good faith or, as like to call it, a duck.
