Some documents that are simply signed through the usual course of business are still contracts. These include purchase orders, receipts, and sales agreements, among others. For any such agreements, it is critical that you understand your end of the bargain and the legal consequences of it. Otherwise, you could be held legally accountable for something you did not expect.

How Can I Ensure a Contract is Good?

Reading a document before you sign it is obviously the cardinal rule. The clauses outlining your duties under the contract are especially worthy of special attention. However, documents can often be too long for a worthwhile read, or so commonplace that reading each one is not practical. Luckily, there are other way to make sure the contract is correct. A Elba, Alabama attorney can look over a contract before you sign it, as well as review any standardized documents that you deal with on a routine basis. In so doing, the lawyer will ensure that the legal effect of the documents matches your intent.

What if I Don't Understand a Contract in Alabama?

Although contracts are expressed in words, the agreement itself is what matters. Regardless of the language, parties to a contract are generally legally bound only according to their understanding of the contract. Since it's your understanding that matters, relying on the other party's explanation of the contract terms can lead to problems. In Elba, you can find a neutral third party that is qualified to review and explain the contract. Negotiations in some particular fields, such as finance, can require unique expertise; but no matter how complicated the situation, the objective of contract law in Alabama is to give legal effect to the intent of the parties involved.
