Vitiation

  • Any act or omission which negates an agreement.  E.g. home insurance can become void if a property is left unoccupied for longer than a specific period of time.  Such omission to secure a tenancy could vitiate the insurance.
  • Were a student to enter a contract without the legal capacity to do so, e.g. because he is under age, this vitiating factor will make any agreement null and void.
