Don operated a licensed nursing home facility elderly

Customer Question

Don operated a licensed nursing home facility for 25 elderly residents. Whenever he had an opening he would place a ad in the the local newspaper that read as follows: nursing home care provided, $500 per week. Peters 90 years old father was suffering from dementia and peter was no longer able to provide the consistent care his father needed. Peter saw Don's advertisment and called don to arrange a visit to dons nurisng home to inspect the facility.
Peter met with don inspected the facility, but said he needed to speak it over with his sister before he could finalize the deal. The next week Don placed an ad that it was full no vacancies. Peter rented a storage unit packed up his father, but did not read the ad in the newspaper that said it was full. He eventually moved his father into another nursing facility. Does Peter have an enforceable contract against don? why or why not?

Hello, my name is Greg.
No, there is not an enforcable contract in place in this situation as no written (or even verbal) agreement was formed. The visit ended with Peter needing to meet and discuss with his sister before he would be willing to finalize a deal. This meant that Don, without any deal in place, was free to continue to look to fill the room as he was not sure that point if it was going to be used for Peter's father.
