Not all contracts need to be in writing to be binding, nor do all written contracts need to be signed to be binding.
Contractual disputes commonly involve determining:
- What terms have been incorporated into the contract, e.g. whether representations made pre contract have been incorporated into the contract or representations made post contract have varied the contract
- Whose Terms and Conditions apply, e.g. you may have ordered goods on your Terms and Conditions but the supplier says their Terms and Conditions apply
- Have the terms been complied with, e.g. has the work been done or the goods delivered by a certain date?
- Whether a party to the contract is entitled to terminate the contract if the other party is in breach, e.g. an invoice has not been paid – does this entitle you to stop work?
- Are penalty provisions enforceable, e.g. work has not been completed on time and penalty provision requires a specified payment for the delay – can you insist on payment or do you have to pay?
- Whether limitation of liability or exclusion of liability provisions are valid, e.g. can such clauses be relied upon to avoid an otherwise valid claim?
