Contracts

As with any business transaction, be sure to read all agreements, guarantees and instructions before signing.  Do not be pressured into signing an agreement before you are ready and that you have read and understand all terms and conditions.  Make sure all oral promises are put in writing. 

Be wary of vaguely worded provisions, exclusions or limitations which could pose a problem later.  Never sign a contract with sections left blank.  You may also wish to have your legal advisor review the contract before signing.
