Hi Deepak,

 

You need to enable Field history tracking of Account object and then you can add the Account History related list in the Account detail page. so that you can change the Account owner change in the Account History related list.

Hi Deepak,

 

To prevent the Account owner change in Contract,

there is a Activate button on the detail page of the contract. If you activate the contract by clicking the Activate button, the button will disappear. Now if you go and change the Account owner in Account record, the corresponding will not be reflected in Contract  owner field and also if the status of the Contract is Activated, only the Contract history is working.

 

For reference,
