A treaty can fail for illegal purposes that are less frightening than murder or discrimination. You will remember the previous lesson that each state enacted a law called fraud law and based on an old English statute of the same name. Both the old and the new status of fraud say that a contract that conveys an interest in real estate must be written. If real estate contracts are not available in writing, the courts will not apply them. (The only exception to the writing requirement is a lease that lasts less than a year.) Let us conclude this lesson by talking about the difference between bilateral and unilateral treaties. A bilateral contract exists when a contract imposes obligations on both parties. When we think of a treaty, we usually think of a bilateral treaty. Imagine Bob agreeing to sell her watch to Sally for $100, and she agrees to buy it. Bob and Sally both have contractual obligations. Bob has to give Sally his watch, and in return, she has to give him $100. If one party refuses to fulfill its contractual obligation, the other party may continue to perform the contract.

Closing can be a confusing process, because in most cases, several contracts are concluded simultaneously: once the buyer has chosen the property to acquire, a sales contract is negotiated and signed. Contract law in general is dealt with in Chapter 8 « Contracts »; Our discussion will focus on certain aspects of the real estate contract. Fraud law requires that contracts for the sale of real estate be written. The letter must contain some information. We can enter into a contract in five essential ways. A contract may end in another, less frequent way, but the five we will talk about are the main methods of contract execution. When a party is injured and the party does not break, a court may bring a large number of appeals to the hurtful party or, if necessary, to both parties. The Tribunal`s objective in the application of the remedies is to rebalance the contractual relationship and not to sanction the aggrieved party.

Sometimes an offer indicates a method of acceptance. If the offer indicates a method of acceptance, the person accepting the offer must use the specified method or there will be no binding contract. For example, imagine an offer: « Send your approval Tuesday at 12:00 p.m.m in writing to our office. » A call at 11:.m. or a written reception at 1 p.m.m. does not create a binding contract, as acceptance does not meet the requirements of the offer. It goes without saying that the person who made the offer can ignore late acceptance while accepting a binding contract.
