Contract Law Problems

What is Contract Law?

Contract Law is a body of law that presides over verbal and written agreements linked with trading of merchandise and services, money, and properties. It contains topics for example, the nature of contractual obligations, limitation of action, freedom of contract, privacy of contract, termination of contract, and covers also agency relationships, commercial paper, and contracts of employment. Listed below are five of the top Contract Law Questions that have been answered by Experts.

In the state of California are internet/phone business service providers required to put their Automatic Renewal clause in their contracts where it is readable?

The state of CA Code 1945.5 is the correct code that the individual is trying to find. This pertains just to the housing leases. An automatic renewal clause in CA except for housing leases, are still officially permitted, and is interpreted in standard contract law.

If an individual had a roofing job in the state of Texas where they spent an additional $6,000, does this individual have a case in receiving this money?

If there is a contract not honored, the individual would have a good claim. The owner of the home could file a lawsuit in TX small claims for up to ten thousand dollars.

Are there any precedents for a rejection of a contract via the mailbox rule? Alternatively, does the mailbox rule only apply to an acceptance?

Revocation is effective on receiving, not on send out. Restatement § 42: “An offered power of acceptance is terminated when the offeree receives from the offeror a manifestation of an intention not to enter into the proposed contract.”

“Rejection or counter-offer by mail or telegram does not terminate the power of acceptance until received by the offeror”.


Restatement § 40: The lawful result of rejection lies in the possible outcome on the offeror. If the offeree says that he wants to refuse the offer, it is extremely possible that the offeror would alter their plans. The offeror cannot adjust their plans until they are alert of the rejection.

If someone has an agreement with a Martial Arts studio if an individual got Hepatitis B and the studio states they are not in violation of their contract, what are the legal remedies in this case?

As long as the individual has a doctor’s note stating that the individual can pass the virus to other people in the martial arts setting, then at that time the owner of the company has to release the individual from their agreement. Seeing as it has become impracticable for the individual to fulfill the contract. If the individual had an auto payment make certain that, they terminate it quickly or he would possibly keep on trying to obtain the payment. The majority of studios would not take legal action on their contract it presents them with a bad name if they are taking legal action against their clientele.

Someone owning 100% of two companies signed a contract between the companies and being the only Director of both companies, is there any case law that would be used in this situation in case of conflict of interest?

There is no case law that could be used in this situation. Seeing how there is completely nothing astonishing about the individual doing this, each company is a legal entity. There is no company code that prohibits businesses that are owned by the same individual, from manufacturing arrangements with another.
