To define the subject matter of the contract, the first step is to understand that a contract is a promise between two or more parties.3 min of reading Case law has largely smoothed, but not completely, the impact of the underlying legal concepts. For example, if one party grants the other party an option in one section and the strike price and exercise period in other sections, it would be inconceivable that the option would be exercisable without an exercise price or indefinitely. However, it is recommended to establish at least an explicit link between the main obligations of an agreement. In the event of a breach of contract, the party who was the subject of the breach is entitled to financial compensation to compensate for the loss, whether in terms of money, time or other considerations. In real estate purchase contracts, an object clause is used to note a contractual condition. A sale of real estate may be subject to the sale of another property. If the sale of the other property does not take place within the agreed deadlines, the contract loses its validity. The purpose of Article 2 will generally be to establish an exception to the main rule set out in Article 1. The expression “subject to” therefore justifies the hierarchical priority between the two clauses to the extent that there is an overlap between the two. The seller may see a benefit of a clause if they can continue to show the property to potential buyers. This allows the seller to keep control over who will buy the property.

Conversely, the buyer benefits from the clause if his purchase of the house depends on the sale of another property. The buyer can set the purchase price and conditions while extending his deadline for the sale of his other property. Subject means to be conditioned or dependent on something. For example, if an asset is transferred without clear title or charge, with its knowledge and consent to the liabilities associated with the property, that acquisition of the property is called an acquisition subject to the liabilities associated with the property. This transfer is subject to the consent of the creditor. If the seller receives another offer within the specified period, the seller may ask the buyer to delete the clause. If the buyer agrees, the seller can then accept another offer. This can lead to better terms and conditions for the seller. The buyer can also stick to the original terms of the contract and continue the process of selling their property, which means that the seller will have to wait until the contract term expires before accepting another offer. Subject to the terms of this License, each Contributor hereby grants you a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, free, royalty-free, and irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, create derivative works from, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute the Work and such Derivative Works as a source or object. The term “subject” is used quite often in contracts.

He tells the reader that he should compare the current clause he is reading (clause 1) with another clause elsewhere in the contract (clause 2). Article 2 can be on the same page, a page later or on a previous page. Either way, “whatever” is actually the opposite of “subject.” Let`s rewrite the above examples with “independent of” instead of “subject.” Sometimes the same term can be found in a contract, but formulated much more broadly. For example, if the person drafting the contract does not have time to specify the specific clause numbers for which the exception is specified, the phrase may be called “Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement.” may be found. In this case, the exception applies to the entire agreement. This expression can be used in clear English as “Despite everything that is contrary in this agreement…” ” can be written. Subject to the terms of this Agreement. The phrase “Subject to the terms of this Agreement (or also subject to the terms of this Agreement”) is often superfluous because it is too broad. It is clear that the rights and obligations of the parties must be identified by considering the agreement as a whole and not each individual clause. But aspects of property law come into play in this regard. This would be the case, in particular, in the case of a sale and transfer of a right or property from a contract governed by the law of a jurisdiction of the Roman legal tradition or German law (because Germany applies the so-called abstract system for a transfer of ownership): the seller will want to ensure that the transfer of the right or goods (e.B included in section 2.1 of the purchase contract) is subject to on conditions.

on the proper performance of all other material obligations. If conditionality does not exist, non-performance by the buyer leaves the seller with the transfer of the goods or rights and a claim for payment of the purchase price. If conditionality is determined and the buyer violates its obligations, the seller is considered (retrospectively) as the owner and is entitled to damages. Subject: The term `subject to` is used when an exception to a rule or provision contained in another clause of the contract is to be introduced. The sale of a home may also include a clause if the purchase of the home depends on the buyer selling a property to finance the purchase. If the buyer is unable to sell the property, the sale is not complete and will invalidate the contract. If a clause is included in the contract, the seller commits to that buyer for a certain period of time and cannot accept any other offer during that period. If a subject of the contract is added to a letter, e-mail or other form of communication, it is indicated that the communication is not legally binding until it has been agreed by all parties. It may also appear to be subject to a lease or license. Rules of good practice. The words Subject to. should not be used to supplement a provision or simply to link two or more clauses.

In addition, the undercutting of a clause compared to other provisions should be specific (i.e. . . . . . .
