    correct?

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether the word "perform" is correctly used:

    to perform the subject of the contract

    Or is there any better verb? Like execute, realize etc.?

    Thanks a lot!

    If this legal English then we should have more than just a few words of a phrase to work with.

    The parties will cooperate in making decisions necessary for timely performance of the subject of the Contract

    The period of performance of the subject of the Contract will commence on the day of signing this Contract

    The Contractor undertakes to perform the subject of this Contract within 10 months from the first day of the term of this Contract

    Re: correct?

    The performance of this Contract will commence as of the day on which it has been signed by both/all parties.

    The Contractor undertakes to perform the services agreed within this Contract within ten months from the date of the said Contract.

    It is agreed that this Contract shall be executed on the xxx day of month year, and that the performance of its terms and conditions will take place after that date.

    [In law "to execute" something means to make it legal by signing or sealing it.]

    Is it not possible to use the phrase "subject of the contract"?

    Re: correct?

    I have never done so and would not see it as a good phrase to use. A contract is a summary of terms and conditions relating to an activity.

    I would say the "subject of the contract" is redundant. It is not necessary...I am assuming the subject is the title of the contract
