  • English law does not currently recognise a universal implied duty on contracting parties to perform their obligations in good faith. This differs from the position in many other countries, including France, Germany, the United States and Australia, which, to some extent or another, recognise some form of overriding principle that, in agreeing and performing contracts, the parties should act in good faith.
