Contract Law: Vitiating factor

August 13, 2023

A vitiating factor is an occurrence that taints the consent of the agreement to a contract which renders a contract voidable. If there is a vitiating factor, the contract will still come into existence but it could be set aside with retrospective effect in the future through the remedy of rescission. However, until recission occurs, the contract will continue to operate as normal.
