Every person having legal capacity has a right to contract on equal terms without discrimination because of any Code ground.

A contract is a legal agreement. It can be a written or verbal agreement.

The right to enter into a contract on equal terms covers all steps in the contract, including the offer, acceptance, price or even rejection of a contract. The Code covers all types of contracts, including contracts to buy a house, condominium or other type of residential accommodation, and contracts for buying a business, such as office or retail space.

For example, an automobile manufacturer cannot refuse to enter into a contract with the owner of a car dealership because the owner is gay.
