Using a Form Contract

Using a form contract as a baseline for your agreement may save you time. Attorneys practicing California law in Guadalupe can be helpful in selecting the right form, and can also revise the contract to make it the best fit for your individual situation. Using a form contract without the assistance of an attorney may pose problems. First, parties using form contracts often do not read all the terms, and can therefore be unaware of their obligations under the contract. Second, form contracts often use words and language understood only within the legal community. This may cause parties to agree to a term they don't really understand. With either a negotiated contract or a form, an attorney can ensure that the written document matches the intent of each party. Attorneys in Guadalupe often specialize in California contract law.
