Those Pesky “Gentlemen’s Agreements”

August 6, 2010



Head on over to Construction Law Musings today to read my guest post on why you should never rely on a “gentlemen’s agreement” for a construction project.  Handshakes are well and good, but put it in writing.  Same goes for any agreement, really.  Read, review, and understand your contracts, settlement agreements, and warranty deeds.

 A written document almost always trumps oral “understandings,” so why chance your business to anything less?
