Agreements That Are Not Contracts

Written by

Any promise and series of promises that make mutual respect is an agree­ment.” Having com­plied with the def­i­n­i­tion of the agree­ment, it is clear that a “promise” is an agree­ment. For example, Mr. A. is declared in default by the court and the court has ordered that he be excluded from the con­tract. Now Mr. A buys an apart­ment in incre­ments and has not paid for it. The owner of the apart­ment cannot sue him because the con­tract was non-​​acute. (excluded from awarding con­tracts) ENFORCEABLE BY LAW:- in Indian Con­tract Act 2 (h) it says the agree­ment is enforce­able by law. If an agree­ment is legally applic­able, then it is CONTRACT, if not just an agreement.

All con­tracts are agree­ments, but not all agree­ments are con­tracts.” This state­ment can be under­stood from the Venn dia­gram above. The agree­ments, which are enforce­able under the law of the country, become con­tracts des­ig­nated by the inner circle. The outer circle refers to agree­ments that are not con­tracts. The shady part includes agree­ments that are not enforce­able by law and are referred to as non-​​legal agree­ments. FAMILY RIGHT:- Family law is not treated as in the case of: Bal­four v/​s Bal­four:- In this case, the accused who entered Govt., Job in Ceylon went to Eng­land with his wife on love. For health rea­sons, the woman was unable to return to Ceylon. The hus­band promised to pay his wife 30 ponds a month as child sup­port for the period she was to live. The hus­band did not pay that amount.

The wife filed a com­plaint against her hus­band for the money. The court found that this agree­ment was not applic­able by law. A con­tract is a legally binding agree­ment that exists between two or more par­ties to do or not to do some­thing. An agree­ment begins with an offer and ends for com­pen­sa­tion, but a con­tract must achieve another objec­tive, that is, applic­a­bility. As a result of this vio­la­tion, the aggrieved person can appeal against the cul­prit. So we can say that all con­tracts are an agree­ment, but not all agree­ments are con­tracts.
