What is an example of legality of contract?

Generally, a contract is a written agreement between 2 or more parties that is binding and legally enforceable. Generally there must be an offer made by one party and accepted by the other and something of value must be exchanged. In certain cases verbal contracts may be enforceable when the party who wishes to enforce has appropriate evidence.
A contract made for an illegal purpose is not enforceable. For example, a lease contract for an illegal apartment cannot be enforced in court.

Answer . If the offer or contract was prepared by a competent real estate agent or attorney, it should contain a number of stipulations that allow you to back out. For example, if the house is appraised for less than the offer price, if the home inspection reveals problems,if you fail to sell you…r current home or if your mortgage is not approved. Otherwise, if you fail to deliver on your end of the agreement, you will forfeit any earnest money and may be sued for damages. I would consult an attorney about your specific situation - this could get very expensive. (MORE)

Yes, both verbal and written agreements can be enforced by law. Verbal agreements are, however, difficult to prove without other evidence. Otherwise anyone could say that another person verbally agreed to something, even if they hadn't.. In addition, most states require some written documentation r…egarding the exchange of land. If there is no writing, the agreement for the sale or exchange of land will not be enforcable. (MORE)

Legality of object is one requirement for a contract to be enforceable. Any contract to do an illegal act is unenforceable even if the consideration has been paid. The court won't even make the other person give you your money back if you paid someone to commit a crime and that person later refused.… Technically, that is a breach of contract, but since the object of the contract (commission of a crime) is illegal, the contract is unenforceable in the courts.

No. WBS stands for Work Breakdown Structure. It is something that helps breakdown the whole projects scope into smaller and more manageable pieces. This is also a very important process in project management. To be able to actually execute the project, the project scope is broken down into manageab…le tasks by creating a work breakdown structure (WBS). In other words, a WBS is a deliverable-oriented hierarchy of the work that must be performed to accomplish the objectives of and create the deliverables for the project.

Oral contracts are both legal and binding. Its proving them that is rough. Another view: (in the US) I highly doubt that the above statement is true. An old rule of thumb is that a verbal contract is worth the paper it is written on.
as long as it is signed by the people involved then, yes it is legal.
The real deal is that a verbal contract already is legallybinding. Assuming that both parties later on tell the truth aboutwhat was said. I suppose if you wanted to add a more solidly "legally binding"aspect to it, you'd have that verbal contract witnessed by someimpeccably impartial third party.… Unrelated to either party byblood, marriage, friendship or financial ties, and of a professionknown for integrity, such as a priest or judge. But frankly, for all the trouble that would be, one might just aswell type the agreement, and both sign in front of a notary public,with each walking away with an original. (MORE)
It depends upon the jurisdiction. In many places a verbal contractis just as good as a written one in the eyes of the law - it is anenforceable agreement. However, it can be harder to prove the termsof a verbal agreement in court as both sides may (and usually will)have different recollections. The …plaintiff must show someconvincing evidence in order to prevail. However, in some countries contracts are not enforceable unlessthey are in writing (in some countries the rule only applies tocertain types of contract - for example, in England, verbalcontracts are enforceable except if they relate to the transfer ofland, where a written contract is required). Also be aware that insome countries (particularly South American and Eastern Europe)many contracts cannot be enforced unless they have been notarised,and clearly you can only notarise a written contract.

A contract is an agreement by which one party agrees to do certain things or provide certain services to another party, in exchange for consideration of some sort - usually money. A contract can be written or verbal, however it is always preferable to have a written contract, especially in case ther…e is a dispute. To be legally binding, the contract must describe the acts, services, materials, or other items to be supplied by the one party, the consideration to be paid by the other party, and the terms and conditions which will govern the relationship between the parties, such as how long the contract will be in effect, a procedure for termination, what happens if a party breaches the terms of the contract, etc. A written contract must then be signed by the parties in whatever manner is required under the laws of the country, state, province or territory which will govern the performance of the contract.

This question pertains to seeking legal advice, which is usually not a good idea to obtain via the internet. For the best answer to this question, you should seek qualified legal advice from a lawyer who is familiar with contract law in your area. The following answer should not be construed as lega…l advice, but just some things to consider. Many jurisdictions in the United States, for example, require that membership contracts include several different clauses to protect the consumer. One of which includes the right of the consumer to cancel the contract by written notice within a specific time frame (often 5 - 10 business days) from the signing of the contract with no reason needed. If that time has elapsed, then you might be required to honor the contract, unless another clause allows cancellation. One such clause might pertain to the health of the student, or injury preventing participation in physical activity. This usually requires a doctor's written statement. Another clause might be a transfer clause which would pertain to the customer moving beyond a reasonable distance from the place of business where the contract is held. Also, if the business moves to a location that makes travel an unreasonable burden Of course, if there is any way that the contract holder has violated the contract, and failed to provide services in a manner consistent with the agreement, then the contract might be determined as void in a court of law. Although this should not be interpreted as legal advice, as an experienced Martial Art instructor, I would say that the best thing to do, if no other options are available, is to talk to the school owner. Explain why you want to be released from the contract, and see if they are willing to do so out of courtesy. Many school owners rely on the commitment of regular payments from their customers so that they can keep their business operating, and cover their expenses and financial obligations (not to mention make a decent living off a reasonable profit). If there is a legitimate problem, and reason why you want to cancel, most fair-minded Instructors will find a way to compromise, or work something out to resolve the issue. If the school owner is too greedy and profit driven, you might have no other choice but to pay for the entire contract, and then choose to either avail yourself of the services, or write it off as a loss, and don't attend classes any more.

Yes, an unwritten contract can be legally binding if it can be proved that a contract exists between the parties. For instance, many tenants do not have a written lease or rental agreement with their landlords. But it's easy to prove that a contract exists because the tenant is renting the property …and the landlord is accepting rent from the tenant. What is harder to establish, however, is what the exact terms of an oral contract are. That's why it is always advisable to put it in writing so that there is no question that a contract exists and both parties are clear on what their rights and obligations are. (MORE)

Probably. But WHY isn't each page initialed? Is it an oversight? Or was the person who didn't "initial" it communicating some disagreement with the language of the contract? The really important thing is that it's signed. Some contracts have to be in writing and signed, per the Statute of Frauds or …the Uniform Commercial Code. Other contracts can be binding if done verbally or part verbally and part in writing, but if the written part has a space for somebody's signature and that person didn't sign it, how can you say there was a meeting of the minds and a real agreement? Not signing is a big problem. Not initialing each page is a smaller problem that is less likely to void the contract. (MORE)
