Q: 

Verbal contract legally binding In Michigan?

A:  Verbal contracts are legally binding. However, an old saying, "a verbal contract is worth the paper it is printed on", is accurate. Unless you had someone else overhear the conversation and/or promised action and payment, you will have an uphill battle... he said/she said. Sorry. First, it is a gross overstatement to say that verbal contracts are enforceable. All states have categories of agreements that MUST BE IN WRITING to be enforced (called the "statute of frauds"). For example, in Michigan, no action may be brought against a financial institution to enforce any alleged promise or commitment unless the promise or commitment was "in...

Q: 

Why is the mis conception a legal binding contract like marriage belongs to a church?

A:  a little off topic, but i found out yesterday that the Puritans saw marriage as a legal, government sanctioned thing. they banned all religiosity from any marriage preformed and they werent allowed to have weddings in a church for several decades. You mean because I had to get a license from a state, pay money to the state, and sign a bunch of state paperwork, it belongs to the state? ;) Why should it belong to the government? Because it''s a legally binding contract between two parties negotiating property and inheritance rights on current and future possessions, including the taxation of that property. I like that idea okmanders. separate the union for the two oh good i hate to be off topic! i figure if even...

Depending on the state you''re in verbal contracts can...

Q: 

Is an oral contract legally binding?

A:  The agreement you entered into may be considered a contract and your rights and obligations and whether you will be able to recover in a breach of contract action will depend on the terms of the contract and the court''s interpretation of the same.

Q: 

Is an oral contract legally binding?

A:  The statute of frauds is a law in every state which requires that certain documents be in writing, such as real property titles and transfers, leases for more than a year, wills, and sale of goods that have a price of $500 or more. The purpose of the law is to protect against false claims for payment from contracts that were not agreed upon. If a contract provides for the sale of goods with a price of $500.00 or more, this type of contract must ordinarily be in writing and signed by the “party to be charged” (e.g., the party who is being sued for breach of contract). It has been held that a typed signature at bottom of vendor''s...

Q: 

contract for a Secured Loan - Is It Legal?

A:  Your daughter needs to have a lawyer look over her documents. We can''t tell her what her rights and remedies may be under a contract we have never seen. If information has been filled into blanks on the contract after she signed it, and she still has her copies showing the empty blanks, make sure she hangs on to her copies. Fair enough. I probably gave too much information, I should have kept my questions more basic. My biggest question and concern is the blank DMV Vehicle transfer documents and whether or not they can be used to take the car at any time. He had our daughter sign one form as the seller, along with the Power of Attorney - and another as the Buyer. The forms do include a Dealer ID#, but he has told...
