We assist our clients save money in the medium and long term by drafting bespoke terms and conditions helping them to communicate clearly with their potential client and avoid unnecessary disputes. We also issue the correct paperwork along with the Terms and Conditions to ensure our clients integrate the contract into their sales process.

Understandably, small business can often believe that they don’t need a contract, or they are too busy to have one done. A contract won’t always stop disputes happening, but a well drafted set of terms and conditions will help to prevent them. It allows the business owner to manage risks better if the clients understand the contract.

Unsigned documentation – does it need to be signed to be enforceable?

If your contract is unenforceable then it means the business can end up losing out.

Email or a verbal agreements still count as a contract, but there can be a number of problems like proving what the terms of the contract are if it has been agreed verbally, or what terms are enforceable if it is through email. If there has been no signature it can prove difficult to determine whether the terms were actually agreed.

It’s understandable that businesses feel they may not always need a contract. If it is a repeat client, friend or known associate there can be a mutual feeling of trust, so it appears like there would be no need for anything to be put in writing formally.

A changes of client contact or peoples personal circumstances can lead to them reacting differently. Without a contract existing relationship run the risk of turning sour. A contract outlines what has been agreed and helps the business and client to stay protected. It allows both parties to understand what to do in any given situation, and helps to remedy any problems – therefore protecting the relationship.

It is certain that some agreements will lead to problems and by not having a signed contract it can lead to expensive legal battles.
