Legal Word Of The Day

“Implied Contract”

Such a contract as the law presumes a man to have promised to perform.
The word ‘implied’ may be more appropriate to contracts implied by law, but it is sometimes used to designate what may be called tacit contracts, that is, contracts where the proposal or the acceptance or both are signified, not by words, but by acts or conduct. But before there can be such a tacit or implied contract, the acts or the conduct relied upon must be of such nature that it can only give rise to the inference that there must have been an implied offer and acceptance.

An express contract is one to which the minds of the parties have assented, while implied contracts are those implied by law from the facts and circumstances of the transaction, although they are even against the consent of the party to be bound. The distinction between an express contract and an implied one is that in one the liability arises directly from the contract, while in the other the contract is implied, or arises from the liability.
