Contract Creation and Management
The scenario presented is on contractual conflicts. In summary, a software development company and a hotel company entered into a business partnership to develop an electronic reservation system for the hotel company. The groundwork of the plan changed and obfuscated what was expected by both parties. These changes were not communicated well enough, both internally and externally, to accommodate these changes (University of Phoenix, 2002).
This case presented how a contract between parties was prepared, but what was required was

In this scenario, Delilah and I have an agency relationship. An agency relationship is where a principal engages an agent to carry out various duties on his or her behalf. This relationship involves delegating decision making powers to the agent by the principle; which means trust is a fundamental requirement for it to succeed. The agreement is that Delilah will negotiate the contract for wood pulp with the third parties. When determining the liability of the contracts made by the agent, the liability is based on whether or not the identity of the principal was made known to the third party

The company was incorporated on 1st May. On 10th June the company commenced business whereby the company’s directors, on behalf of the company, purchased the shop from Jacob. Advise the directors the legal position of the company.
In Malaysia the law allows a company to ratify a contract entered before its incorporation. Section 35(1) states that any contract entered into by a company prior to its formation or by any person on behalf of the company prior to its formation may be ratified by the company after its incorporation. In the case above, the contract between the company and Jacob may be ratified. Once the contract is ratified, it is binding on the company and

Weekly Reflection – Common Contracts vs. UCC Article 2
Contracts are used on a daily basis. For example, agreeing to terms and conditions to download an app on a mobile device occurs daily and is considered a contract. It is important to read and know what one is agreeing too; in this case apps are able to retrieve personal data from the authorized device. Both parties need to be in agreement with the terms of the contract in order for the contract to be made. If someone agrees and then adds to what was stated, it is not a valid contract (Melvin, 2011). The contract laws are governed by the common law and the Uniform Commercial Code known as the UCC.

1. Does a contract to convey real property exist between Heikkila and McLaughlin?
A contract to convey real property does not exist between Heikkila and McLaughlin because in this case a contract has not been put together at all. Now, David McLaughlin only submitted written offers to purchase three of the parcels and by the way, these are only “offers”. Not an actually contract or agreement. Heikkila has every right to withdraw from Mr. David McLaughlin to sell. I mean, he did not break any laws and there was no contract in place whatsoever. This is just a case of trying to

is also obligated to return Jeremy’s down payment and any additional money he paid each month. By law, when a minor chooses to disaffirm a contract, the adult must place the minor in status quo; the position the minor was in before entering the contract (Cheeseman, 2010). This is the only legal remedy to the situation. Equitably, the company could offer Jeremy a job, which would give him the ability to pay for the car however if Jeremy still chooses to disaffirm the contract, he has the legal right to do so. The salesman should have verified Jeremy’s age rather than making an assumption and required an adult cosigner to validate the contract.

In conclusion, this is a case of the illusory promise. Mr. Brodsky didn’t give valid consideration in order to make Mr. Culbertson’s promise enforceable. The analysis of the common law and the UCC rules, which can be applied to this case, has proved that Mr. Brodsky had no chance to win that argument. Since, there is no valid consideration, the option contract has no right to be considered an enforceable contract.
Mr. Culbertson prevails.

ACL s.23 states that a consumer’s contract is unfair if:
* It causes a significant imbalance in the parties’ rights and obligations,
* It is not reasonably necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the business; and
* It would cause detriment to the consumer.
The car hire contract is considered as a standard form of consumer contract because Ash paid a deposit of $500 and signed the document. The terms in the contract referring to “the customer must return the vehicle by no later than the agreed time. Any failure whatsoever to comply with the

that mandates that exact remedy. This is not how equitable remedies are. Equitable remedies typically are decided on a case-by-case basis. Essentially when it comes to this type of remedy, it comes down to what is fair and right. An example of a legal remedy would be damages for a breach in contract. This means that any person and/or party involved in a contract can recover the damages if another person or party breaches. Typically the damages are equal to the damages and the law stipulates that this remedy is appropriate.

A contract is an agreement that creates obligations that are enforceable by the law. A contract can either be written or spoken. There are elements to a contract that make it valid and binding. This is defined as a clear manifestation of willingness to enter an agreement made by another person with full understanding that their assent to the bargain is an invitation and is concluded. As to whether there was an offer in this case, yes there is an offer. When the salesman offered the buyers time for a test drive and they finally chose and agreed to buy the blue car it was a clear offer.

to Andrea that she has signed; the letter makes reference to a car Andrea has for sale and Andrea’s desired price. When Andrea later delivers the car to Sandy, Sandy returns the car, claiming she does not want the car and that they did not have a contract, so she is not bound to keep the car. Andrea, however, claims they do have a contract and wants to enforce said contract for the price of the car.

On March 24th, she called Bernie to inform him that she is pulling out of the deal. Bernie lets her know he is keeping her deposit in accordance with their agreement. Vivian is claiming there was no mutuality of the contract and therefore it is void.
The issue in this case is under applicable law in Virginia, is whether there was mutuality of consideration in Bernie and Vivian’s transaction.

The general rule is that silence cannot amount to acceptance. The rationale behind this is based on the idea that acceptance must take some form of objective manifestation of the intention of the offeree (i.e. the party to which an offer has been made) to accept the terms of the contract. Such intention is usually best expressed though some form of positive action. This is so as to ensure that no one can enforce a contract upon an unwilling party.

One of the first questions that you need to determine, after reaching the conclusion that your dispute is subject to arbitration, is what law will control the procedural elements of the arbitration. Which direction the determination takes is largely dependent on how carefully the contract was drafted. The world that we are living in is nothing compared to what it was 20 years ago. With all the new technologies and innovations mankind is discovering our world is never and will never stay the same. The same mind set applies to law, rather its statewide, nationwide or internationally. Arbitration can be used in just about anything, for example

A contract is a legally binding agreement. Every consumer transaction is a contract. A contract for goods and services is the main consumer contract; it involves one party (the supplier) supplying goods or a service to another party (consumer) in exchange for money. Contracts are governed under the Trade Practices Amendment (Australian Consumer Law) Act 2010 (Cwlth). The terms of a contract include express terms and implied terms. Implied terms are terms which apply automatically to any contract and don’t have to be stated within the contract.

At times a person may feel there is not choice but to provide the guarantee; it is to help a family member with a new business, or your company needs the loan to continue an expansion programme.
