Definition of "Quasi-contract"

Gregory Bedford Trophy Homes Realty

Legal obligation to pay for a benefit received as if a contract has actually occurred. This may arise in a few cases so that an equitable situation occurs. An example is when a homeowner allows repairs to be performed knowing that a reasonable fee will be charged. It would be unfair for the homeowner to have unjust enrichment at the suffering of the one performing the work.
