Agreeing to do something in a legal or contractual context is generally used to assume an obligation:
for example, "the contractor agrees to perform the work in good and workmanlike quality"

Consent, on the other hand, is an acknowledgement that the other person will do something and the subject will permit it. For Example, "The Seller consents to the registration of Buyer's title of ownership to the property in the Land Register".

If the term "agree" is used, the action will be performed by the person who agreed, when "consent" is used, the action will be performed by the other person and will be condoned by the first.

I hope this answers your question.

Have a good day!
