Most people believe that a contract needs to be in writing and must be signed before it can be binding. However, the courts take a different view. As far as the courts are concerned, a contract can be entered into verbally. It can be proved by looking at the discussions between the parties as well as any emails, invoices or letters and what actions they have taken in carrying out the contract.
Some of the types of contractual disputes we have dealt with include:
- Disputes with builders
- Disputes with someone supplying goods to you
- Disputes with someone providing a service
