Why is this if() throwing an exception?

<?php if ($searchresult = $pages->find('general-terms-and-conditions')->toFile()): ?>

is throwing “Call to a member function toFile() on null”

$page->find() should return a page object and you cannot call a field method (toFile()) on a page object. Additionally it seems the the page doesn’t exist, therefore the null pointer exception.

OK. Sorry, my mistake.
