A contingency is a part of the agreement that must be met, otherwise the other party can cancel the contract. For example, a buyer interested in a home may place an offer that is contingent upon the building being cleared by a certified home inspector. If it isn’t cleared, the contingency has not been met and the buyer can negate the agreement.
