Frequently Asked Questions
What is a legally binding contract and how does it protect the interests of the parties involved?
A legally binding contract is an agreement between individuals or legal entities, where one party agrees to provide certain products or services in exchange for money or other products or services.
This contract is enforceable by law, providing assurance to the contracting parties that their interests will be legally protected. It ensures that their agreement will be honored and gives them the right to claim damages if the other party fails to honor the agreement.
To create a legally enforceable contract, there must be an offer, acceptance, and exchange of consideration between the parties involved. The individual entering into the contract must have the legal capacity to do so. For example, a minor, with a few exceptions, does not have the legal capacity to be part of a contract.
A legally binding contract can be either written or oral. However, depending on the transaction type, certain contracts may need to be written to be considered legally enforceable. Contractual terms with unclear or unknown meanings to non-attorneys can impact the damages and remedies available in the event of a contract breach.
