The status clearly limits a debtor`s attempts to settle unpaid debts through unilateral conduct. Regardless of this, a creditor must be careful when receiving a cheque or other tradable instrument for a reduced amount, with language on it or on a cover letter where that the approval or deposit of the cheque or instrument constitutes an agreement of the creditor to accept the cheque in full. In the analysis of such a model of facts, a creditor or debtor will have little indication of Oregon jurisprudence, given that there is a rarity in Oregon jurisprudence, which reads the current version of ORS 73.0311, amended in 1997. On the other hand, there is a replacement contract where the parties „agree to replace the new agreement with the underlying obligation.“ McDowell, 345 or. 283. (referring to 6 Corbin on contracts 1293 to 185)). The Tribunal found that an alternative contract departs from an enforcement agreement because the parties intend that the conclusion of the new agreement will immediately respect the underlying undertaking. McDowell, 345 Gold. 283 (citing Eagle Industries, Inc. v.
Thompson, 321 Gold. 398, 408-12, 900 P.2d 475 (1995)). Stack then sent a cheque for $13,000 to Gelles, half the amount owed, and indicated in a letter that the payment represented the final payment on the contract. Gelles took the cheque and complained for the other half. Gelles lost in court on the basis that the deposit of the cheque was a „concordance and satisfaction“ with the dispute between the parties. 2. An enforcement agreement is an agreement that suspends the obligations under the original contract, but does not replace the original contract. For example, when a person is prosecuted for an alleged misconduct, that person bears the burden of proof of affirmative defence of compliance and satisfaction. The satisfaction of an agreement satisfies both the agreement and the initial contractual obligation. That is, if Thelma Louise gives her house on the beach and Louise accepts it, the agreement is fulfilled and thelma is therefore the original obligation to pay Louise $100,000. Agreement: An agreement in which the current contract promises the contractor to fulfill a different obligation from that which it is contractually bound and which commits to accept the other obligation instead of the benefit owed to it under the current contract.
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. In addition, the Tribunal found that the defendants had not invoked a replacement contract because the defendants „did not claim that in entering into the transaction agreement, they had quashed the underlying undertaking – an allegation necessary to assert a replacement contract.“ McDowell, 348 Gold. 283-84 (referring to Abrahamso v.
Brett, 143 Gold. 14, 24, 21 p. 2d 229 (1933)). Teaching adequacy and satisfaction is a common legal theory. But there are two related legal lessons – enforcement agreements and replacement contracts – that are less well known and less tormented. The distinction between these three theories is important in litigation for the purpose of evidence, and also in determining whether there is a right to a jury for a defence or claim.
