Did You Know?
A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between two or more parties that creates an obligation to do or not do particular things. It need not be in writing with certain exceptions (land transfers, contracts to transfer debt obligations, etc.)
Written contracts provide proof of what was agreed upon and encourage parties to think through what they are agreeing to perhaps minimizing misunderstandings.
