The majority of abusive contracts are deemed unconscionable due to unequal bargaining power between the parties due to one party’s lack of knowledge, experience, or resources. A typical example, which we have mentioned before, would be where a “Loft Clearer” clears your grandpa’s loft for free and tells you, when you find out, “I have sent him a message when I have found something nice and will tell him where I found it and all he says is “Well done “.

Interestingly, in a forum thread titled Keeping Landowner Updated, a detectorist has just written “I have sent him a message when I have found something nice and will tell him where I found it and all he says is “Well Done “

We have no reason to suppose that detectorist isn’t upstanding but the question arises: out of 27,000 detectorists how many take advantage of the fact they themselves are judge, jury and sole eye-witness of what is “nice” and how many landowners are deprived of their property thanks to unconscionable abusive contracts, sealed with a handshake and a smile?
