Voidable contracts may arise through misrepresentation, some instances of mistake, nondisclosure, and duress (see economic duress; undue influence). Certain proprietary contracts entered into by minors are also voidable (see capacity to contract). The setting aside of a voidable contract is effected by rescission.
