: A quasi contract is a fictional contract created by courts for equilable,not contractual purposes. A quasi contract is not an actual contract, but is alegal substitute for a conterformed to impose

equity between two parties theconcept of a quasi contract that show have been formed, even through inactually it was net. It is used when a court finds it appropriate to crecite anobligation upon a non

: All contracts are agree ment to all agreement n ot contracts. Acontract is a legally binding agreement relationship that exist between two ormore parties to do obstain from perfoming certain acts. An agreement is form of ceios reference
