When did you last make a contract? You don’t have to look far back—perhaps yesterday, or even this morning. Did you buy a sandwich? Place a coin in a soda machine? Get a haircut? These transactions involve entering into a contract.
Of course, there are more complicated contracts: the agreements signed when renting a home, buying a smart phone, or obtaining a credit card, for example.
Big or small, contracts are part of our daily lives. This issue of The PLEA will explain contracts, and help you understand your rights and responsibilities when entering into a contract.
