Question
Dear Sir,
Can You please explain the conditions of Contract?

Answer
Hi Nihmath,

Conditions of Contract are terms and conditions that set the rights and obligations of the contracting parties, when a contract is awarded or entered into. These include 'general conditions' which are common to all types of contracts, as well as 'special conditions' which are peculiar to a specific contract (such as, contract change conditions, payment conditions, price variation clauses, penalties).

Source: Business Dictionary

In addition, Conditions of Contract is being placed as a clear guidance in the determination of each party's responsibilities, obligations, etc. to avoid unnecessary disputes between parties in the future.

Without the Conditions of Contract, each party would or may think that a certain task is under the obligation of other party, thus the dispute will arise.
