Signed Contract Assistance
One of the areas that we can help with in Wake Forest is the issue of signed contracts. Several types of contracts must be signed to be enforceable in North Carolina. This is referred to as the doctrine of “statute of frauds”. These include:
- An ownership or other interest in real property
- Leases for real property lasting longer than 3 years
- Surety agreements
- Mortgages and deeds of trust
- Easement agreements of more than one year
- Merchants sale of goods greater than $500
- Covenants not to compete
Contract Law and Contract Defense Introduction
Besides the handful of agreements that are subject to North Carolina’s “statute of frauds”, nearly every other agreement may be carried out either orally or in written form.
North Carolina does recognize each type of contract. An individual does not need written documentation recording an agreement to begin a breach of contract civil lawsuit in Wake Forest. You will be able to take someone to court if a party fails to make a payment that was mutually agreed upon.
