The form of the acts has been considerably altered by law and the common law requirement of the waterproofing of the facts (which was once essential to the validity of the facts) is no longer mandatory. Waterproofing meant that a party would attach its wax seal to the facts and perform an act that explicitly or implicitly recognized that the seal belonged to them (for example. B by explicit indications). Historically, seals have been affixed to written contracts in order to rehabilitate the parties` intention to be legally bound to the terms and conditions contained in them. Originally, the dishes required that these seals be made from wax. However, over time, the formality of this requirement has loosened and the courts have begun to accept alternative means of “sealing” a written instrument, including the waterproofing of paper. Today, these jurisdictions, which recognize sealed documents, only have to include the word “SEAL” in the signature line. The delivery is made either by effective surrender to the other party or by the intention that the deed will be effective even if it is held by the party party. It is the only formal contract because it infers its validity from the form in which it is expressed and not because of the agreement or consideration.
The reasons for this particular treatment of sealed contracts can be included in the legal formalities related to the waterproofing of a document with a wax seal. First, the legal formality of putting a seal on a document was evidence of a contract. Second, the need to use a label – widely recognized as legally important – has helped to give the parties the importance of the agreement. This element of consultation is important in the context of many legal theories, why pledges are generally not enforceable in the same way as contracts: there is a concern that pledges may sometimes be made under pressure (for example. B family members) without proper advice, which is why a requirement of the legal formality of the seal could replace a reflection to make charitable pledges enforceable. Third, the use of a label clearly demonstrated that the parties intended to proceed with a transaction.  Another important formal aspect of the process of executing an act is “delivery.” In this context, delivery does not have physical significance. It does, however, require that the legal person who performs the act clearly intend to be linked to the instrument acting as an act.
