The idea of consideration stems from the idea that commitments or promises must be part of an agreement between all parties and prove that they bought a promise by performing an act in return. You may find that you can`t challenge a friend`s claim in court because you don`t have a legal document that you can appeal against. Even if you have a document, it still contains an agreement that is not useful in the event of a dispute. An important aspect of the use of documents concerns the period during which an appeal for breach of an obligation contained in the act may be invoked. You may have noticed that some formal business documents are called an « agreement, » while others are a « document. » Have you ever wondered what the difference is? Is it just different names for a contract or do they have different requirements and effects? Thus, some contracts are legally required to appear on paper and perform in different forms. A document imposes additional restrictions on execution/signature to be considered legitimate and must contain more than one signature and one witness. There are also contrasts in the legal prescription windows for each, and the act has one of the longer deadlines. In 400 George Street (Qld) Pty Ltd v BG International Ltd  QCA 245, the Queensland Court of Appeal found that the words used in the document « exported as an act » and « by the performance of that act » clearly expressed the intention that the document was an act and not an agreement. You can see the following types of documents during your daily life: Typically, the transfer of real estate is registered with a land registry in the UK. In most U.S., documents must be filed with the recorder, who acts as a cadastre to be registered.
An undocumented document may be valid proof of ownership between the parties, but it cannot affect third party claims until it is disclosed or registered. A local law may impose a time limit from which unregistered acts are annulled in respect of third parties, at least as regards acts of intervention. If the expressions used in the document are « performed as an instrument » or « by the execution of this document », this shows that the document was an act and not an agreement, although this may not be sufficient in itself. If the act is taken as a co-owner with right of survival (JTWROS) or a common tenant (TIC), any co-owner can submit a request for division to terminate the rental contract. Holders of a JTWROS certificate always take ownership equally; Therefore, when the partnership is dissolved by division, the proceeds must be distributed equitably among all the co-owners, regardless of the amount that each co-owner contributed to the purchase price of the property. No credit would be allowed for possible additional payments to the purchase price. For example, if A and B jointly contribute to the property as JTWROS and A 80% of the purchase price, A and B would still receive equal distributions for the partition. On the other hand, holders of an ICT certificate can obtain credit for unequal contributions to the purchase price during division. During each division, credits may be granted to any co-owner who may have contributed more than his share to the cost of real estate after taking over the deed on the land.
credits may be granted for services and maintenance; However, improvement credits may not be authorised unless the improvements have actually added substantial added value to the property. As the extinction of the royal line would be one of the reasons for the annexation of a principality by the British, adoption was also granted to some sovereigns. Conceived as a reward for his loyalty to British rule in India, especially after the Indian Rebellion of 1857, such acts gave a sovereign the right to adopt selected heirs from local noble families in the absence of a direct affair.  Among the rulers who benefited from the adoption were Takht Singh, Jaswant Singh of Bharatpur as well as the rulers of the state of Nagod, Samthar and Chaube Jagirs. . . .
