A collateral contract is one in which the consideration for a promise is the making of another contract.



Three elements must be established:


  • A statement must be made to induce entry into the contract
  • The statement must be relied upon
  • The statement relied upon must be promissory in nature.



Where the main contract precedes the collateral contract there can be no contract as past consideration is not good consideration.
