The Pre-Inspection Agreement Is Weegy

As a general rule, you do not have to sign your pre-inspection agreement if it appears from the context that you agree with the conditions it provides. For example, if your agreement is on your header or if it is written in such a way that it is clear that you have drafted it, your signature is not necessary to show your agreement. If you send the agreement electronically, you have already shown your agreement and your signature is not necessary. Many inspectors use pre-printed agreements. These are often printed on the inspector`s header or bear the inspector`s logo. In any event, it is clear from the context that the inspector has prepared the agreement and agrees with the conditions set out therein. It is therefore not necessary for the inspector to sign the agreement. Many people mistakenly think that both sides must sign the treaty in order for it to be implemented. It`s not true. The question is not whether both parties have signed the contract, but whether both parties have accepted its terms.

In modern commerce, we often form contracts when one party signs a pre-printed document that the other party has prepared. For example, if you are applying for a loan, sign a pre-printed contract. The lender does not sign the agreement, because the lender`s agreement on the terms is clear. In other words, an enforceable contract requires a manifestation of mutual consent in the form of an offer by one party and its acceptance by the other.

The fact that one of the parties has not signed a written memorandum of understanding does not matter.

Once the parties have agreed on the essential terms, there is a binding agreement and the omission or even deliberate refusal of a party to sign the contract does not render it unenforceable. May v. Anderson, 119 pp.3d at 1254 (Nev. 2005). . . . .
