10 Essential Elements of a Valid Contract in Business Law

5 hours ago

1. Offer and acceptance: In a contract there must be at least two parties one of them making the offer and the other accepting it. There must thus be an offer by one party and its acceptance by the other.
2. Legal relationship: Parties to a contract must intend to constitute legal relationship. It arises when the parties know that if any one of them fails to fulfil his part of the promise, he would be liable for the failure of the contract.
3. Consensus-ad-idem: The parties to an agreement must have the mutual consent i.e. they must agree upon the same thing and in the same sense. This means that there must be consensus ad idem (i.e.
4. Competency of parties: The parties to an agreement must be competent to contract. In other words, they must be capable of entering into a contract. According to Sec 11 of the Act, “Every person is competent to contract who is of the age of majority according to the law to which he is subject to and who is of sound mind and is not disqualified from contracting by any law to which he is subject.”
5. Free consent: Another essential of a valid contract is the consent of parties, which should be free. Under Sec. 13, “Two or more parties are said to consent, when they agree upon the same thing in the same sense.”
6. Lawful consideration: Consideration is known as ‘something in return’. It is also essential for the validity of a contract. A promise to do something or to give something without anything in return would not be enforceable at law and, therefore, would not be valid.
7. Lawful objects: According to Sec. 10, an agreement may become a valid-contract only, if it is for a lawful consideration and lawful object.
8. Agreement not expressly declared void: An agreement to become a contract should not be an agreement which has been expressly declared void by any law in the country, as it would not be enforceable at law.
9. Certainty and possibility of performance: Agreements to form valid contracts must be certain, possible and they should not be uncertain, vague or impossible.
10. Legal formalities: The agreement may be oral or in writing. When the agreement is in writing it must comply with all legal formalities as to attestation, registration.

Contract Law – The WritePass Journal

1. In today’s economic climate businesses often exert commercial pressure during contract negotiation stages. This is a normal part of the process and parties to a contract generally know when pressure being exerted is lawful. Although there is a difference between commercial negotiation and illegitimate pressure, it is often difficult to distinguish between the two. Furthermore, because economic duress can arise from pressure that is not in itself unlawful, parties may be unaware that the pressure they are subjecting a party to a contract is actually economic duress. Despite this, if a court finds that one party to a contract has exerted illegitimate pressure on another party, the innocent party may be able to establish a claim of economic duress. Given how uncertain the economy is at present, hard bargaining is a common form of negotiation, though it is vital that businesses are aware of the risks when exerting pressure that is likely to be deemed illegitimate. It is unclear how this...
