(i) Contracts to pay money to a third party

1.5 A and B enter into an agreement under which A agrees to pay a sum of money to C. Both parties fully intend that C should take the benefit of A's promise. If A defaults, C cannot sue A because of the doctrine of privity. It does not help for B to sue A for damages since B would be unlikely to have suffered any damage himself. Sometimes, the Court may be able to prevent an injustice to C if B is prepared to sue A for specific performance and the Court is prepared to make an order compelling A to perform his promise.
