Sales Contracts

A sales contract is a legal and binding agreement or a bond that implicates an exchange of merchandise, services or property that occurs between a seller or a vendor and a buyer or purchaser. This exchange takes place for a mutually approved value in money or an equivalent of money that is paid or is promised to be paid within a given time mutually decided by the seller and buyer. Sales contracts are a particular type of legal contract.

Sales contracts stem from an evident ancient practice of exchange in many countries all over the world. Although sales exchanges have existed as far bacl as can be remembered, a legal contract came about because of the possibility of one being cheated or deceived in these exchanges. When these exchanges are governed by a statutory law, it makes it binding for both the seller and buyer to abide by the contract, come what may. The sales contract laws are designed to make dealings between vendors and customers uncomplicated, forthright and simple to understand.

The best way for an individual to enter into a legal and binding sales contract is to approach a lawyer who specializes in sales contracts and get legal advice as to the procedure of entering into the contract. Sales contracts are beneficial to both the seller and the buyer, as there are provisions made by the law to handle any breach of contract by either side. If the seller breaches the contract by not giving the commodity or merchandise or property that was promised at the time of exchange, there are provisions to make the seller pay for the breach of contract. Similarly, if the buyer doesn't pay the amount agreed on in the contract, payment must be made for the breach of contract.
