Accord As In Agreement

Agreement and satisfaction are the payment of unseated debt. For example, a contractor is responsible for building a garage for an owner for 35,000 $US. The contract required $17,500 prior to construction, us$10,000 in various construction phases and a final payment of $7,500 at completion. Once completed, the owner of the house complained of a lower quality of work and refused to make the final payment. After a mutual agreement, the owner accepted $4000 as a full payment. A new contract was created through offer, acceptance and consideration. The idea is that for a saving of $3,500, the owner abandons what is rightfully his, a well-built garage. The owner gives up his right at full price to avoid the suit for a lower performance. If the agreement and satisfaction have arrived, the owner has waived his right to bring a lower-quality action, and the owner has waived his right to sue for the full $7,500, which is due under the original contract. ACCORD, under contract. A satisfied satisfaction between the injured party and the injured party, which, if carried out, is a blockage for all acts on that account. 3 Bl. Com.

Thus, if the consideration for the promise not to sue goes to another, the defendant is a stranger to the agreement, and the fact that the undertaking was given to him will be unnecessary. 592; 6, John.

Compliance with satisfaction when two effects have been achieved; It is the payment of the debt; and it is a type of sale of the business that the debtor gave to the creditor for satisfaction; but it differs insofar as it is not valid until the delivery of the item, and there is no guarantee for the thing thus sold, except perhaps the title; For in this context, there can be no doubt that if the debtor would give the goods of another to an agreement and to satisfaction, there would be no satisfaction.
