Since contract law is at the heart of most commercial relationships, it is one of the three or four main areas of legal concern and can involve variations in circumstances and complexities. The existence of a contract presupposes finding the following elements of fact: (a) an offer; (b) the acceptance of this offer, which leads to a meeting between the spirits; (c) a performance commitment; (d) valuable consideration (which in one way or another may be a promise or payment); (e) a date or event on which the performance is to be performed (fulfil the obligations); (f) the conditions of implementation, including the fulfilment of commitments; (g) power. A unilateral contract is a contract in which there is a promise to pay in return for the actual performance or to provide other consideration. (I`ll pay you $500 to fix my car by Thursday; the power is repairing the car until that date). A bilateral treaty is a treaty in which a promise is exchanged for a promise.

(I promise to fix your car by Thursday and you promise to pay $500 on Thursday). Contracts can be written or oral, but oral contracts are more difficult to prove, and in most jurisdictions the time to continue the contract is shorter (for example. B two years for oral versus four years for writing). In some cases, a contract may consist of several documents, such as. B a series of letters, orders, offers and counter-offers. There are a large number of types of contracts: “conditional” to an event that occurs; “joint and several”, in which several parties have a common performance promise, but each is responsible; “implicitly”, in which the courts find, on the basis of the circumstances, the existence of a contract. The parties may enter into a contract in order to satisfy all the requirements of others, to purchase all the products manufactured or to take an option to renew a contract. The variations are almost limitless. Contracts for illegal purposes are legally unenforceable. 2) v. to conclude a contract. (See: counterparty, contract of adhesion, unilateral treaty, bilateral treaty, oral treaty) In Latin contractus de contrahere, to subscribe (a relationship or agreement), com- with, together + trahere The terms of a contract in Anglo-American law are that there is an offer, an acceptance, a consideration and an intention to comply with legal obligations.

Scottish law does not require any consideration because of its civil origin. Contractual consent is usually discovered by an objective and non-subjective study of the parties` positions. The possibility that they have not actually agreed on the same thing – consensus ad idem – is dealt with according to the law on errors or errors. See also unfair contract terms. CONTRACT. This term, in its broader sense, includes any description of an agreement or obligation in which a party is bound by another party to pay a sum of money or to do or refrain from doing a particular act; or a contract is an act that contains a total obligation. In its strict sense, it is an agreement between two or more people who have something to do, with both parties being related* or related to each other. 1 pow. 6; Code of Lo. section 1754; Civ. code 1101; Poth.
