Valid Contracts Explained
A contract may be defined as an agreement between two or more parties that is binding in law. This means that the agreement generates rights and obligations that may be enforced in the courts. The normal method for enforcement is an action for damages for breach of contract, though in some cases the courts may compel performance by the party in default.Get Legal Advice
