WConsideration
  • Consideration is the concept of legal value in connection with contracts. It is anything of value promised to another when making a contract.
  • In common law it is a prerequisite that both parties offer consideration before a contract can be thought of as binding.
  • However, even if a court decides there is no contract, there might be a possible recovery under quantum meruit (sometimes referred to as a quasi-contract) or promissory estoppel.
  • If A signs a contract to buy a car from B for $5,000, A's consideration is the $5,000, and B's consideration is the car.
