What is voiding a contract?

The term contract can be generally defined as any agreement between two sides, say a buyer and seller for instance. The contract can be valid according to legislation in Canada, only if certain conditions are met and will result in voiding the contract if the concerned legislation or terms and conditions be not met or violated. Dealing with the same example of contracts between buyers and sellers, the details of purchase and order of the goods or the services need to be recorded to make a contract. The agreements made between the buyer and the seller may be oral or in written form and result from an in and out detailed communication between both the parties. Terms are important for any contract as there are basic factors related to the term of the contract that is highly capable of voiding the contract.

All the concerned documents of the particular contract need a mention necessarily of the terms that have been accepted by both the Canadian seller and the buyer. Any variation in the term details in any kind of document, say for example in an invoice, is strictly leading a way to voiding the contract. The term that has been decided by both the parties and recorded cannot be changed or extended or even shortened unless both the parties mutually want a change with the consent of one another. Any shipment that needs to be performed needs extra documents of attestation. Suppose there is a seller who is desirous of a shipment to be done, he needs to seek the attestation or approval of the buyer and get it in a genuinely written, stating that there are no objections from the buyer’s side.

Say there are a set of goods that have been placed an order for, the delivery of the goods or the services desired should compulsorily be within the specified time period of the contract as per the agreement. Delivery is said to be done on time only when the goods reach the buyer and there is no room for any grace time that the buyer will prefer to grant. The buyer in case of late delivery has all the rights to refuse to accept any or even all the goods that have been ordered and this can leave a room for voiding the contract partly or at once.

The buyer in a contract in Canada can have the goods returned back to the seller if there is no satisfaction and if the party is not so sure about any parameter of the good, like the quality. And the costs in this case need to be taken care of by the seller and the buyer will not have to even spend on the transporting cost. There are warranties that play a role, and the parameters for warranty is mainly the design, quality and quantity of goods that have been ordered and that should be delivered as per every single requirement of the buyer. Descriptions and certain specifications by the buyer need to be resorted to, and dissatisfaction, if any, will have to be repaired by the seller if it is within the accepted warranty period.
