Contract formation is one of the oldest forms of human interaction. This is due to the oral contract that made Adam and Eve agree with God to live in the Garden of Eden (which, of course, led to the first violation of contractual actions – a very severe judgment) that led to Neanderthal contracts created by grunts and gestures. The advent of written communication brought the signature originally made with a kind of primitive tool to „make a sign“ with an „X“ or another coarse qualifier on a wall or other surface. This went as far as signing a document that became too elegant. Sealed wax, seal rings and pen pencils, which have been used for centuries, often followed by bacchanalian eating, drinking and cavorting to celebrate the compliance of the agreement. This, in turn, allowed simple ink signatures to flourish. Both the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, which applies to all intergovernmental and foreign transactions, and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act („UETA“), a version adopted by California and the majority of states, provide that no legal effect is denied to a contract and signature simply because they are in electronic form. Under these laws, the sender`s printed name at the end of an email, in the signature block of the email or even in the „De“ line may be a sufficient electronic signature to attach it to a contract established by this email exchange. Courts across the country are increasingly imposing contracts that are created by exchanging emails that appear informal and are not signed in the traditional sense. A recent decision in New York stated that „given the now widespread use of e-mails as a form of written communication in both personal and business affairs, It would be unreasonable to conclude that e-mail messages are unable to meet the criteria (the New York version of UETA) simply because they cannot be signed in a traditional way“ or at the end of an email in a more narrative form: if the agreement does not offer the breaching party the opportunity to heal the offence, the non-breaker may terminate contract 1.
A lawyer can help you determine whether you are within your right to terminate the contract directly or whether you should offer the opportunity to cure the violation. This document is simple and simple to complete as it only requires the basic details about the contract and the violation. It is written to inform the person who caused the contract problem and expressly reserves all the legal rights of the uninjured party – meaning that if further action were to be pursued, the non-injurious party can generally move forward with the legal proceedings. Notification to the other party is an important step in resolving potential problems caused by a breach of contract. Even if a communication may not solve everything, it is an important step to take, especially in respecting your legal and moving rights.
