This definition includes benefits arising under a construction contract such as the right to payment, but not burdens such as the obligation to pay. The definition also includes claims for breach of contract.
By contrast, the Act does not apply in Scotland, and an assignation need not be in writing (unless it relates to land) but can be intimated, meaning that intimation is sufficient to create an assignee right that is effective and binding against the other parties. There is also no distinction between legal (statutory) and equitable assignments.
In 2011, the Scottish Law Commission stated that Scots and English law were broadly similar with regard to assignation, with contractual obligations not being assigned regardless of ‘delectus personae’ (selection of a party satisfactory for a position involving trust and confidence in the character and capabilities of that party).
