“An agreement not enforceable by law is said to be void”. [Sec. 2(g)]. Thus a void agreement does not give rise to any legal consequences and is void ab-initio. In the eye of law, such an agreement is no agreement at all from its very inception.
We have already dealt with the following types of void agreements in the preceding chapters, and will not therefore discuss them here again:
1. Agreements by a minor or a person of unsound mind (Sec. 11).
2. Agreements made under a bilateral mistake of fact material to the agreement (Sec. 20).
3. Agreements of which the consideration or object is unlawful (Sec. 23).
4. Agreements of which the consideration or object is unlawful in part and the illegal part cannot be separated from the legal part (Sec. 24).
5. Agreements made without consideration (Sec. 25).
