A support contract is usually a one-time contract which, taking into account the party whose benefit is exploited by the contract, enters into the main or principal contract, which sets additional conditions for the same purpose as the main contract. [1] For example, an ancillary contract is entered into when one party pays the other party a certain amount for entry into another contract. An ancillary contract may be entered into between one of the parties and a third party. A support contract is a contract by which the contracting parties enter into or promise another contract. The two treaties are therefore linked and can be applied, even if they are not a constructive part of the original treaty. [2] In JJ Savage and Sons Pty Ltd v. Blakney, a mere expression of opinion was not deemed sufficient to be kept as a promise. In Crown Melbourne Limited v Cosmopolitan Hotel (Vic) Pty Ltd, a statement from a landlord to the tenants considered when negotiating a lease agreement that they are “supported during the extension” would not bind the lessor to offer another five-year lease. [3] In the English case Barry v Davies, it was found that an auctioneer and a buyer had entered into a secondary contract. [13] It has been found that, although the main contract does not concern the incense, the benefits granted to the bid represent a good consideration for the increase in the price of the offer.

[13] The project must have specifically or implicitly requested the main contract and its declaration of forgiveness must have motivated the inclusion of the other party in the main contract. [4] According to Lord Denning MR, a support contract is considered binding “when a person gives a commitment or assurance to another who intends to react by entering into a contract.” [5] Ancillary contracts are an exception to the practice of contractual doctrine[9], which states that a contract cannot impose obligations or rights on a party not related to the contract. [10] However, in cases where a security contract is entered into between a third party and one of the contracting parties, the Court may authorize rights or obligations to the non-contracting party, as outlined in the previous unauthorized Donoghue/Stevenson case. [11] A party to an existing contract may attempt to demonstrate the existence of a security contract if its right to the infringement fails because the statement on which it was based is not considered to be the duration of the principal contract. It was decided that the explanation must have been so successful. [2] In the event of a breach of a security contract, corrective action may be taken. A security contract, if forged between the same parties as the main contract, must not be contrary to the main contract. In other words, if the term was agreed before the formal contract was concluded (but was still in place and could not be executed before the end of the second term), the first term will remain eligible.

[6] In essence, security contracts cannot contradict an element of the main contract or the rights that flow from it. [7] It can also be illustrated as follows: A support contract is a contract that pushes a person to enter into a separate “primary” contract.
