Contract law Edit

Third parties generally are allowed to enforce the terms of a contract made for their benefit.[1] "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."[2] 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."[3] "If the terms of the contract necessarily require the promisor to confer a benefit on a third person," that person may enforce that benefit.[4]
