1. Agreement: An arrangement of understanding and intention between two or more parties in relation to their duties and rights with regard to some past or future acts.

2. Void Contract: Any contract that meets any of the following conditions: is completed successfully, violates law/fairness, is rendered ineligible by changes in the law, or is illegal from the time it was made.

3. Offer: To present for certain action/acceptance, to make a proposal, to proffer.

4. Stranger to a contract: Someone who is not a party to the contract, a third person, who cannot sue for the contract.

5. Parties competent to enter into a contract: Someone who is competent and has the right to enter into a contract (with regard to a particular action or fact or service); this does not include minors, persons of unsound mind, or persons disqualified by the law to which they are subject.

6. Undue Influence: Influence by which a person/party is forced to do something or undergo any agreement/service against their own free will. 

7. Quasi Contracts: An agreement regarding the obligation of parties involved, but no actual contract exists; used for equitable purposes and not contractual work.

8. Contingent contract: A contract where parties' actions are contingent on fulfillment or violation of certain conditions, for example, a buyer paying an amount if the contract is completed within the given time.

9. Performance of contract: Execution or completion of the terms of the contract releasing the parties from their responsibilities as agreed upon in the contract. 

10: Demand performance: The promisee can demand the performance of the promise made in the contract. Legal representatives of the promisee can also demand performance in case of the promisee's death.
