Legislation that defines Cyprus Contract Law – Cap. 149 if the Laws of Cyprus – bears remarkable similarities with the Contract Law in India. This is because at the time that the legislation was enacted, in 1957, Cyprus was under the British colonial rule. Based on significant similarities, the Indian Contract Law is used as a tool in assisting in interpretation of the Cyprus Contract Law.

Duxbury, Robert (2011) Contract law. 2nd ed. London: Sweet & Maxwell.

Transactions, agreements, exchanges of goods and services… they are in the base of every civilization. Humans have used exchanging methods to acquire what they needed in exchange for what they have for thousands of years. Nowadays, these exchanges are regulated by contracts, which are mutually accepted, legally binding agreements between the interested parties.

As any other essential part of human’s life and interaction, it is necessary to have certain rules that ensure that one party is not going to benefit from that exchange by prejudicing the other party. For this reason, contracts are regulated by Contract Law, the part of the legal system that stablishes the obligations and rights of any agreement, oral or written, as well as the limitations and freedom included on them. Contract law is used for a wide variety of things, from tenancy contracts to even an employment contract.

In the following chapter, we will be able to see how Contract Law works.
