When two or more parties discuss the terms of a joint contract, the act of approval of the terms is considered «mutual consent.» This meeting of minds does not in itself create a binding agreement, but it is a necessary factor in any legally binding treaty. This term applies to both written and oral agreements and, although it is generally easier to enforce a written contract, the courts consider whether the validity of an oral contract has been the subject of mutual consent. Traditionally, mutual consent is called «meeting spirits.» This means that the parties to a contract must agree on the details of the transaction. Mutual consent is demonstrated by «supply» and «acceptance.» Express Contract: a contract in which mutual consent expressly expresses itself, either orally or in writing. Please note that the court is not interested in what the parties actually thought. He is only interested in what a reasonable person would have thought in the same circumstances. For example, if mutual consent is expressed explicitly, neither orally nor in writing, the resulting contract is an explicit contract. In order for a contract to be concluded, a mutual agreement must be reached, which is only an agreement between the two parties to conclude a contract. In deciding whether or not there is mutual consent, the courts use a «reasonable» objective procedure, in which the court examines the exchanges between the parties that led to the conclusion of the contract and then determines what reasonable persons in the place of the parties would have considered the importance of the exchange.
