Contracts can be a tricky business. Different rules can apply depending on the circumstances surrounding the contract. Special care should be taken to ensure that a contract is legally enforceable when the parties enter into the contract. All too often, two parties that think they have created a binding contract haven’t in fact done so. Even more common are situations in which two parties have a binding contract but there is an ambiguity in the contract or the parties did not address something in the contract that they did not anticipate being an issue. Another recurring problem is that one or more parties think they did not have a binding contract while the other party thinks there was a contract. This is especially common when the parties do not have a single document reflecting their agreement, but instead rely on a series of documents or communications.
