However, in certain circumstances, certain commitments that are not considered contracts may be applied to a limited extent. If, to its detriment, a party has relied in reasonable confidence on the assurances/promises of the other party, the court may apply an appropriate doctrine of not guilty in order to grant damage of trust to the non-injurious party in order to compensate the party for the amount resulting from the party`s reasonable confidence in the agreement. The consideration can be anything of value (for example.B. Goods, money, services or promises of any of these) that each party gives in return to support its side of the bargain. Reciprocal promises are mutual consideration.  If only one party offers consideration, the agreement is a “mere promise” and is not enforceable. n. 1) Payment or money. (2) An essential element of contract law, consideration, is an advantage that must be negotiated between the parties and is the main reason for the conclusion of a contract by a party.
The consideration must be of value (at least for the parties) and is exchanged for the performance or promise of performance of the other party (this performance is itself a consideration). In a contract, one counterparty (business) is exchanged for another counterparty. Not making a plot can be a thought, like, “I`m going to pay you $1,000 not to build a road next to my fence.” Sometimes the consideration is “nominal”, which means that it is only indicated for the form, for example.B. “$10 in return for the transfer of ownership”, which is used to hide the actual amount that is paid. Contracts may be unenforceable or void due to “breaches of consideration”, if the intended consideration is worse than expected, damaged or destroyed, or if the performance is not correct (for example. B if the mechanic does not operate the car properly). Acts that are illegal or immoral that they are contrary to established public order cannot be used as a counterparty to enforceable contracts. Examples: prostitution, a game where it is forbidden to hire someone to break a skater`s knee or for someone to break a deal (convincing someone to withdraw from a promise.) (See the contract) COUNTERPARTY, contracts.
Compensation paid or any inconvenience suffered by the party from which it originates. Or it is the reason that pushes the contractor to conclude the contract. 2 bl. Com. 443. Viner defines it as a meritorious thing or opportunity that requires mutual compensation in the act or law. Abr. tit. Reflect, A. A counterparty of one type or another is so absolutely necessary to enter into a good contract that a Nudum pactum or an agreement to do or pay anything on the one hand without the other party being compensated is legally invalid and that a man cannot be compelled to perform it.

Negotiable instruments, such as promissy notes and promissy notes, are tainted by a first-hand proof of a counterparty. 2 bl. Com. 445. 3. The consideration must be a certain advantage for the party whose promise is made or for a third person in its proceeding; or a disadvantage that is maintained at the instance of the party that promises, by the party for who who benefit the promise is made. 4 east, 455;1 taunts. 523 Chitty on Contr. 7 Dr.
