A treaty is a legally binding agreement. Enforceable in court: a contract is generally only valid if it is signed by both parties. However, if both parties agree on the terms of the contract, perhaps by e-mail or even orally, and then act in a manner that indicates the intent to accept the terms of that agreement, they could be bound by a contract. In the case of a contract for the sale, transfer, option or lease of land to make the contract mandatory and effective, it must be signed both in writing and by both parties. What happens if you accept a contract with another party and you do, but the other party has not signed it? Even with the best of intentions, this kind of error can easily occur in the commercial world. In many cases, both parties will meet their contractual obligations without any problems.

broke with the District Court. For unwritten contracts, the limitation period is five years. For written contracts, the statute of limitations is ten years. In that case, it was a written, albeit unsigned, contract in the form of an engagement letter. Is an unsigned contract, therefore, for the purposes of the current limitation period, a written or unwritten contract? In commercial disputes, it is not uncommon for courts to be asked to decide whether an unsigned contract is binding.
