A contract in Alabama is an agreement about something of value between two or more parties who intend the agreement to have legal effect. It may be oral or written, as long as all parties agree to the contractual terms. A written contract is usually preferred by most businesses, because that make the agreements more reliable. Contracts may involve legal principles, so they are best formed with a clear understanding of the law.

Negotiating a Contract in Irondale

Along with particular clauses that should be included in every Irondale contract for it to be valid, it is important to adequately discuss each term to make sure that the intent of each party is understood by the other.

Using a Form Contract

It may save you time to use a form contract instead of drafting your own. Even so, you may want an attorney in Irondale, Alabama to add or remove clauses, or to simply make the contract language more clear. If the parties attempt to use a form contract without an attorney's advice, there may be risks. First, parties using form contracts often do not read all the clauses, and can therefore be unaware of their obligations under the contract. Second, using a contract that someone else has written can obligate the parties to a contract clause that they do not understand. An attorney can ensure that a written contract matches the intent of the parties, both with form contracts and in negotiations. In Irondale, many lawyers specialize in Alabama contract law.
