Contract law Edit
Third parties generally are allowed to enforce the terms of a contract made for their benefit. "A contract, made expressly for the benefit of a third party, may be enforced by him at any time before the parties thereto rescind it." To qualify as a contract beneficiary, "the contracting parties must have intended to benefit that individual, an intent which must appear in the terms of the agreement." "If the terms of the contract necessarily require the promisor to confer a benefit on a third person," that person may enforce that benefit.
