Create Legal Obligation through Offer & Acceptance :

Create Legal Obligation through Offer & Acceptance The agreement must comply with necessary formalities as to writing, registration, stamping etc, if any required in order to make it enforceable by law. Example An oral agreement for sale of immovable property is unenforceable because the law requires that such agreement must be in writing and registered.

Lawful Consideration & Object :

Lawful Consideration & Object Consideration means something in return. Without consideration a promise can’t be enforceable by law. However, consideration need not be in money or in kind. It may be of an act, abstinence, a promise to do or not to something. But consideration should be lawful. Example Sudhir agrees to sell his car to Sahil for Rs 1,00,000/- Here Sahil promise to pay Rs 1,00,000/- is the consideration for Sudhir to sell the car and Sudhir promise is consideration for Sahil. X promises to drop prosecution which he has initiated against Y for robbery and Y promises to restore the value of things taken. The agreement in not void because the consideration is unlawful.

Capacity :

X lets a flat on hire to Y, unsocial element. Knowingly that it would be used for immoral purposes. The agreement is void because its object is for immoral purpose.
