  1. contract under seal

    A contract under seal, also known as a deed, is a specific type of legally binding agreement or contract that is acknowledged, formally executed, and physically sealed by the parties involved. Unlike ordinary contracts, a contract under seal does not require consideration (meaning that the obligations can be one-sided) and typically has a longer statute of limitations. The seal represents a deliberate intention to establish a legal obligation, making this type of contract more enforceable. Despite its name, modern law often allows a signature or even the wording of the document to replace the physical seal.
