    Terms and Conditions

    Hi all,
    I have rent a car. On the back of the contract there was a writing. I know what it was. However the title took my attention. It was Terms and Conditions both of which have the same meaning,or else?
    Thanks for help.

    I think, in general English they look have similar meanings. However, in legal terminology, they have vitally different meanings.

    In the common law(law of England and Wales), the terms of a contract are either conditions, warranties, or innominate terms. Depending on which of these categories the term belongs to, the effect of a breach of contracts differs. For example, if a condition is breached, the aggrieved party is entitled to treat the contract as repudiated, however it can only claim damages(compensation) if a warranty(another kind of terms) is not complied with.

    Simply, in the contracts conditions are kind of terms which are more important than the other terms.

    Red face Re: Terms and Conditions

    Hi Fırat,
    It seems you are a lawyer. Because you made my thread clear. In Turkish dictionaries terms and conditions are explained " şartlar" , namely the same meaning. I wish you gave it Turkish. Cos I have not understand yet.
    Thanx.

    A term can mean the period of time allowed for the contract to be fulfilled.
