Contracts 101 – Remember, in any valid contract in Arkansas you must have three things:
1. An offer to purchase or to have services performed. This must be clearly spelled out in order to have a valid Arkansas contract.
2. Acceptance – when both parties to the contract agree on the contract and what it is supposed to accomplish. This is not just a signature but it’s a mutual understanding of the contract and the intent to move forward under that contract.
3. Consideration – the value that the parties are exchanging under the contract. This could be money for services, services for products, or products for money. In any of these situations, it is always imperative that the contract clearly spells out what type of consideration is being given.
These are the basics of contract law in Arkansas. For more details and specific provisions that can be included in your contract, please contact the Story Law Firm.
