Agreement Or Promise Meaning

The non-performance of a promise in a contract is an offence for which the other party may claim benefits and/or damages. 2) to conclude, act, refrain or make a payment or delivery. (See: contract, consideration) [30] Mutual agreement or consent is obviously essential to a valid contract, but the law attributes to a person an intention that corresponds to the reasonable meaning of his or her words and actions. If his words and actions, measured on a reasonable scale, manifest the intention to agree, it does not matter what the true but unspoken state of his mind may be. 17 S.J.J., contracts, § 32, p. 361; 12 Am. Jur., contracts, § 19, p. 515. .
