Past thinking: doing something voluntarily for someone is not a reflection. A Lake B lawn has to be cut, so it does it voluntarily. B comes home from work and is happy that B A gives $30 for cutting the lawn. The following week, A cut B`s lawn again without B to order it. A now asks for 30 dollars for the cutting of the lawn and B refuses to do so. An assertion that they have a contract, because A took into account by mowing the lawn, when it was voluntary. A, that`s not true. B is not required to take into account A. There is no contract.
If B however had asked A to mow the lawn, but had not set the price, A would probably be able to apply the contract after mowing the lawn, because B asked for it. Understanding the consideration is important in many day-to-day situations, including those where (1) a debtor and a creditor enter into a subsequent agreement, (2) an obligation already exists, (3) a promise is illusory and (4) creditors accept a composition. If the law has requirements for one type of contract, they are usually that the agreement is registered in writing and signed by one or both parties or their agent. For a contract to be applicable, courts generally require three things: mutual consent (agreement of the terms of the contract), a valid offer and valid acceptance and consideration. Contracts are therefore concluded in phone calls, Skype calls, Skype INs, personal conversations, emails, SMS, WhatsApp messages, telegram messages or signal messages – you call it. A disputed debt occurs when the parties have agreed on the price or royalty (liquidated), but then argued about their fairness and then settled. In the case of litigation, the parties considered an agreement to accept a fixed amount as payment for the amount owed. Suppose, in the case of a gallbladder, the patient agrees in advance to pay 8,000 $US. Eight months after the operation and as a result of nausea and vomiting, the patient undergoes a second surgery; surgeons discover a surgical sponge embedded in the patient`s intestines. The patient refuses to pay the entire bill of the original physician; They pay $6,000 paid by the patient.
This is a binding agreement because subsequent facts have emerged to legitimize the patient`s dispute over his obligation to pay the full bill. As long as the dispute is effectively well founded and is not surpassed, as long as the lender to the promise acts in good faith, consideration is given to when a disputed debt will be settled. It is a question of whether the new fact is new and difficult enough to make an existing obligation an unforeseen difficulty. If Peter encounters only a small bag of quicksand – say two gallons of value – he should take care of it as part of his already agreed work. When he touches as much quicksand as filling an Olympic swimming pool, it`s clearly unforeseen, and he should have a supplement to deal with it. At some point, between the two amounts of quicksand, there is enough of this thing, so Peter`s obligation to remove it is outside the original agreement and further reflection would be needed in exchange for its removal. Examples of promises that are enforceable without consideration are: when a worker signs an employment contract and is then invited by his employer to perform illegal work, such as. B The smuggling of prohibited goods across a border, the agreement is immediately invalidated because the object is against the law. The illusory promise poses a particular problem in exclusivity agreements, achievements and needs contracts. In commercial cases, the courts do not readily accept that a company accepts an agreement that it considers unfair or that it includes inappropriate conditions.
