Entire agreement clauses are inserted into contracts to ensure that matters not included in the formal document are not held to be part of the agreement and, therefore, enforceable. Over time the courts have gradually eroded the effectiveness of such clauses and that has continued with the introduction of unfair contract terms legislation. The paper discussses the extent to which the inclusion of such clauses in written contracts is likely to be an effective way of achieving their stated purpose.
