First things first, there should be an offer, acceptance and a valid consideration as pre-requisite to form a contract. And one thing you should be clear with is, company get it's legal existence only after its incorporation till that it cannot enter in to contracts. Meanwhile, promoter acts on behalf of company in fiduciary relation(as a parent to child to be born) All contracts which are entered by promoter should be with in the scope of objects clause of memorandum of association.if not, promoter will be personally liable. If third party doesn't want to make a contract with the company he can anytime rescind the contract after company's incorporation. However, fresh contracts will be entered into by company after incorporation as it has legal existence now on the name of company. So third party has option to rescind when forming a fresh contract with company(with its name).

In your example company can specifically enforce the contract if it is within the objects clause of company Provided that the company has accepted the contract after incorporation and has communicated such acceptance to the other party to the contract. For this you can verify sec 15(h) of specific relief act 1963 Hope it helps!!!

Novation of existing contract by change of parties to contract with consent of all the parties. If third party, promoter and company accepts to change the contracting parties of sale of land then he will be liable to company. If third party refuses to sell land to the company then third party is liable to sell land to promoter. Promoter can purchase the land on his name and transfer it to company However all these conditions will made clear In the agreement when it is made
