Contracts, Generally

A “contract” is essentially an agreement between two or more persons or businesses in which each side promises to do something to the benefit of the other. For example, a painter paints your house and you agree to pay the painter a sum of money for that service. Some contracts may be oral (not in writing), others may be written, and some contracts must in writing to be enforceable. There are many different types of contracts.
