Contracts are fundamental to the Anglo-American legal system and involve reciprocal promises to act. There is an extensive body of law regarding contract drafting and enforceability.
Contracts are a means to an end and are used in a wide variety of business transactions.
For instance, in the real estate context, an apartment lease is a simple contract while a "contract for deed" is a contract to sell a house.
