The Law & Verbal Agreements

Verbal Agreements Legal Binding

Many people are not aware that verbal agreements are in many cases as legally binding as written contracts. Verbal contracts can be upheld by a court if someone decides to breach the agreement, although without written terms and conditions it may be difficult to prove.

Conditions of a Verbal Agreement

Under law there are two basic terms that constitute a binding agreement. The verbal agreement will be binding if there was an agreement on the services to be performed and an agreement was reached on remuneration for this service. This agreement can be reached by a verbal exchange in person, via telephone or via an email.

There are certain contracts and agreements that must be made in writing and these will include the sale of property, tenancy agreements, copyright transfer, and contracts for consumer credit. In some cases, verbal agreements will not be upheld in court, not because of the lack of a written agreement but because the terms of the verbal agreement were not clarified.

Written Agreements

For any agreement concerning an exchange of services it is a wise idea to have some form of contract or written statement. The contract or statement should include the terms and conditions of the agreement and is particularly helpful if a dispute between the parties occurs.

Complete Verbal Agreements

In order for a verbal agreement to be legally binding the agreement must have reached completeness. This means that all terms and conditions have been reached and agreed regarding services and terms of pay. Agreements will be incomplete when there are still further terms and conditions to be agreed. Agreements in principle will not usually be upheld in court and will not usually be considered complete verbal agreements.

Verbal Agreements and Disputes

If either party has decided to break a contract then the matter can be taken to the legal courts. In most cases the dispute may rest on the justification of the terms of the verbal agreement. There are a few ways that a judge will try and establish the terms of the agreement. These could include investigating what actually happened in practice. This can include the services that were actually undertaken and if any money whatsoever was paid for any services.

Enforcing a Verbal Agreement

Apart from taking the matter to court there are other ways to enforce a verbal agreement. If money is owed then the matter can be passed on to a collection agency to try to enforce the matter for you. The disgruntled party can also apply pressure themselves by sending letter, emails and making telephone calls to the person who is in breach of contract. Copies of all emails and letters should be kept in case the matter does reach the law courts.

Payment before Service

One way of avoiding this sort of dispute ever occurring may be to ask for some form of payment before supplying a service. Although the customer may not always agree to this it may be an option to consider. In some cases if a person is going to breach a contract and withhold payment then the odds are they may never have intended to pay for the service in the first place. In many cases though a customer may not like the idea of paying for a service until the job is completed for fear of non completion.

Threatening court action for breach of a verbal contract may not actually help the matter at all if one party intended not to carry through on the agreement. However the law does consider complete verbal agreements as Legally Binding and the matter can be brought to the law courts for a judge to make the final decision.

Hi I have recently been fired. I had a verbal agreement before I was fired of how much pay I would get for my wage including commission. This was met with performance. I was paid my wage ( including pay in lieu of notice) however not my commission. I only signed the agreement in which I was terminated from the verbal agreement. I would like to know if I am still entitled to the commission. I worked extremely hard for it. I was never told that if I was to be fired I wouldn't receive it. In addition I repeatedly asked for a written contract (for around 2 months) And a day before I was fired I was given it. Does this mean anything? I also read the contract after and it suggest that the commission scheme is run by the company in absolute discretion. Which means I have no rights to claim it back. But this was never mentioned to me. And I am scared they will use it against me.Please may I be given some advice.

bolo12 - Your Question:
We are an animal charity run by trustees with an employed manager.The manager was employed on a verbal contract more than 20 years ago, but the last of the trustees present at that time passed away some years ago.As the current trustees have no knowledge of what was verbally agreed, is that verbal contract still legally binding?The charity has grown considerably over the years and we have tried to negotiate with our manager to vary his terms of employment, but he will only stick by his original verbal agreement, the details of which are now only known by him and on which he is not very forthcoming.Therefore is there anything we can do?

Our Response:
You would have to seek legal advice regarding this. The verbal contract could still be legally binding due to the fact it was agreed more than 20 years ago. Therefore, I advise you look through past records to check if there is anything written down regarding his employment. However, a charity should produce a written agreement, but in trying to implement this you would have to tread cautiously as if changes are made without consent it may entitle your manager to resign and bring a claim for unfair constructive dismissal. If you have any doubts you may also wish to give ACAS a call.

Mehdi - Your Question:
2 years ago I made an agreement with my neighbour(who is a builder) to redo the external rendering of my house. I have email records of the detailed work I requested alongwith his replies/quote. The builder didn't officially invoice me but I paid the full amount for the work in cash as requested. I did not get him to sign any receipts. During the works, while the render was being removed on the front 1st floor bay window the single brick bay wall was structurally damaged/collapsed inwards in several places. The builder repaired the wall and redid the external and internal redecoration in july 2014. Since winter last year there is significant damp and water penetration/mould. Since Jan16 I have informed him that the work was not done to a reasonable standard. The existing damp proof membrane in the wall has clearly been damaged. I secretly recorded my last mobile phone conversation with him wherein he acknowledges the wall was damaged and receipt of payment. However he claims this is condensation due to my having a PC there. Do I have sufficient evidence to take him to court successfully?

Our Response:
I can only suggest you seek legal advice here. Paying cash and getting no receipts are a tricky thing to prove. A trip to a solicitor for some advice and perhaps a letter to him threatening court may jolt your builder into re-doing the work and save the hassle of court.

@Ab Fab - ring them up and ask if they record the calls for training and monitoring purposes - if the adviser said what you stated then they they have broken the agreement and this could be your get-out clause.
Charlie56 - 23-May-16 @ 11:19 AM
At my business premises I have been with my energy supplier for 12years always paying a fixed amount each month by direct debit. I have recently changed supplier as the broker said I would be saving quite a lot of money, I asked her several times during the call if I could continue to pay in the same way as I like to know what I'm paying each month, & she said yes. She read the verbal contract over the phone @ which point I said I agree & can you confirm that I can pay fixed amount each month she answered yes. Now I'm receiving really high bills, my new supplier didn't ask or come & take a meter reading so now they are saying I owe quite a lot for just one month. I said I wished I'd never changed, she said your in a 3yr contract & the broker should never have said that to you as we don't work like that. I have received my contract but haven't signed it, is there any way I could get out of it & go back to my previous supplier. Many thanks

Ginger - Your Question:
Hello, I had a verbal agreement to purchase 30 possibly more hanging baskets from a local nursery at a discounted price because of the quantity I was getting, I told the owner of the nursery that I would be back in two days to pay for them with a check, he was agreeing on the terms. When I went to pay for the product he refused to sell them to me, he said that after discussing it with his wife, that he wouldn't be making enough money for his efforts. I then attempted to renegotiate an different price and he still refused to sell to me. Just out of curiosity I asked if he would sell the product at full price, and he still refused to sell. I had to at the last minute find somewhere else to buy the baskets, costing me a much higher price because I didn't pre-order them can I sue the owner for breaking this verbal agreement, for damages ? It was a difference of $9 per basket. Plus all my anguish and running around?

Our Response:
I'm afraid we cannot answer this question fully as we are a UK-based site with knowledge of only UK consumer law. However, as a rule a retailer as the choice whether or not they wish to sell an item to a person regardless of a verbal agreement.

Lou1se - Your Question:
Hi I upped my contract hours a few months back from 16 hours to 24 after previously being on a flexi. At the time I was planning on upping my flexi but my manager convinced me just up my hours and he would honour what I could work (I have 2 small children) we agreed I'd work all day Tuesday one eve (mon-thu) and alternative weekends one on one off. This is solely down to childcare. I've just been put in all day on bank holiday Monday and he's told me that we have no official agreement and he said I would be expected to work bank holiday. My question is what are my rights if he decides that he will no longer honour our agreement? He's already put me in on one off my weekends off which I agreed to as a favour. He can be very petty and I just wanted to know where I stand if I refuse. I work for a very all known high street brand and wondered what my rights are ? I do have some text discussing our agreement and have worked these hours since Feb and can prove it.

Our Response:
You would need to refer to the terms of your contract and what you have agreed to when signing it. You don't say whether your contract was renewed when you decided to increase your hours. Regardless of whether your employers says verbally he will honour your working patterns, if the contract says otherwise, then it is the contract terms that will stand.

I work with room reservations and program registration.This is a question in regard to the paragraph that covers liability, hold harmless, cancellation and refund policy, etc., at the bottom of the form. When they book over the internet they click the "I agree" box, in person you have the actual signature. When taking a booking over the phone, is payment considered acceptance? If not, what is considered acceptance for phone transactions?
Curious - 5-May-16 @ 4:24 PM
I am somewhat confused by this article. If verbal contracts are legally binding, how is it that if, say, a masseuse, therapist, personal trainer, etc, makes a verbal contract for a session with a client, also clearly stating their cancellation policy, and that session was booked over the phone, then the client CAN cancel the appointment last minute, or simply not turn up, completely ignoring the cancellation policy (even if it were in writing).This is, apparently, the law in England because any service that is offered and booked *not on premises* is entitled to a 14 day "cooling off period" regardless of subsequent oral/verbal or written "cancellation fee" for missed or abandoned appointments. At least that's what the Citizen's Advice Bureau are telling me. I would be very interested to hear your view on this.

Hi, I went in for a dental check up and I was advised to go to the hygienist to get a thorough clean before having a tooth removed. The hygienist only works Tuesdays and as I was paying for my check up, I was advised that in order to make an appointment with the hygienist I would have to pay up front. Due to the Hygienist being ill on the Tuesday set, they rearranged the appointment meaning I had to rearrange things with work. In the mean time I had another appointment cancelled by them for the tooth removal and that had to be moved too. I went today for the hygienist and set off well before my appointment, but due to traffic I was unable to make it in time. My girlfriend rang up on my behalf, as I did not have the number, to let them know I was going to be late, but by the time I got in to town, I was well over the grace period, so I had my girlfriend call them again to try to rearrange the appointment. She was told that I would loose my "deposit" as they referred to it and if I re booked I would have to pay again. At no point when I was paying in the first place was I told that if I couldn't attend for what ever reason I would forfeit the money I have paid. Should I have been told this as part of the verbal contract? or are they able to assume that it is implied and that I should understand that that is a condition of me paying up front? Thanks.

I asked a friend to assist me do my school project work. Six months after completion of the project work, we had some misunderstandings which, in the actual sense, does not relate to the project work. He later sued me at court for entering into a verbal agreement of paying a sum of USD 2,000.00 to him in relation to my project work. This verbal agreement that he was talking about is never true. What possible defense do I have?

We had ordered a new kitchen for approximately £12000. Mid February 2016 we paied a deposit of £500. The company sent confirmation of order 23 February. On the 9 Match having considered the cost we decided to cancel the order and sent a letter to confirm cancellation. There was no response so we sent a recorded delivery copy of the letter on 24 Match. The company replied on the 2 April saying we still need to pay £580 for costs incurred, should we pay this as they are threatening legal action. In my opinion the money paid to date should cover the costs. Any advice on how to answer this demand.

I am currently living in Dubai and I have been informed by the HR manager of a UK University in Dubai that I have been chosen to fill in the role that I have applied for. I was informed over the phone and during our conversation the HR manager has also informed me that before she can send my contract the Chairman would need to approved it first. The HR manager went for a vacation and her assistant cannot follow-up with the chairman. My question is, can I take legal action should they decide not to approve my contract? It has been three weeks now since I have been informed that I have been chosen to fill in the position. I do regularly follow-up with the assistant who by the way refuses to follow-up on the status of my contract with the chairman.

I attended my local catalogue store today 01/04/2016 to complain about a delivery of a replacement wardrobe that failed to arrive on the time and date specified by the store manager. The assistant manager checked, and no delivery had been arranged by the manager. I agreed to accept another delivery date and as a gesture goodwill a ten pound voucher was offered to me. I intended to purchase some sports equipment on a buy one get one half price basis, however, only one item was in stock. I asked the sales assistant to contact the assistant manager as I had experienced the same inconvenience the week before. When the assistant manager arrived the sales assistant explained it was buy one and get the other half price, but I would have return to the store the following day. I expressed my dissatisfaction and the assistant manger clearly stated I could have the half price one for"Free" no misinterpretation. I even shook the hand of the assistant manager before he walked off. The sales assistant asked for payment, which included the "Free" item and was unwilling to commit herself to complying with what had been agreed. I challenged her and she went back to speak with the assistant manger. The sales assistant returned and said when I return to the store the following day ask for the assistant manager. My fear is he will renege on the verbal contract agreed by acting disingenuous but there was a witness, the sales assistant. Undoubtably the CCTV camera overlooking the cashier will confirm a handshake took place. Is this a verbal contract within law?

I have an employee who is asking for loss on the sale of his home to relocate per the company's request. We are obliged to provide him some monetary relief but I need to draft a binding agreement that states we shall pay this?? but he must remain in the employ of our company for ?? years. Is this possible and what would the wording be if we decided to terminate his employ before the end of the 2 years.

A few months ago my ex employer offered to send me and a few other people to California to work in a new office. We talked about the terms in his office. The deal was that we went to California and he would take care of the rent that we were paying in the apartment. I left in August. A week ago I got a call saying I owed almost 3k for the apartment. My other roommates are unwilling to help me cover for it, and my ex-employer told me "Im not paying for your F*** up's". I have another 3 people that were in the office when the terms were being stated. Do I have a good chance of winning in court? I might have messages and group chats that also say that he was going to pay for the apartment.

How long is a verbal agreement valid for?I made a verbal agreement with someone for $60k he said that if we get all the things together to start what was to be done that we would get the full amount. He gave us $4k we got everything done in 10 months when it came to the point to collect the other $56K he said no that we weren't getting anything else. I told him that since he made a verbal agreement that that is a binding contract. He said no judge would believe us and that we have to prove that he said that in court. His daughter and wife were the other people that were there when he said that and his daughter is the one that has sent him a demand letter. Now he says that if we take this to court that he would counter sue us for something that he promised. We have a lawyer but I want to know what the limit is and does he have a right to counter sue us because of a promise that he has made?

Dan- Your Question:
I would like to know if my Verbal Contract is liable in a court of law. I received a text message from an employer stating that they need my labour at £70 a day plus transport for removing carpets at hotels through an independent company which I agreed upon. however my emplyoer is now on the Fence saying £50 a day plus travel at the end of the Job will I be able to claim my original wage and am I eligible to sue the company if this agreement is not met? Kind regards Daniel

Our Response:
There is no right answer to this, as it may be that after the first offer, your employer discovered there was less work that originally anticipated. If the difference is only £20, it is certainly not worth taking the matter further. I would either ask for the reason why he has reduced the payment from the original offer, and if you still think it is unfair try and re-negotiate the terms.

I got into a verbal contract, with my employer, over a car. I work 49 hours a week, I get paid for 40 of them. The nine hours (straight pay) was going towards my "car payment". I have it written down as such. And every week, I would document how many hours were going towards the car payment. I was given a price of $4500.00, and I paid $4700.00+. She has decided now, that the car is her dad's, and she couldn't sell it, and she wants it back, and I will NOT be getting any compensation for it at all. She has turned everything around that she gave me a $4500.00 cash price, but I couldn't afford it, and she still continued to take all of my over time. Are there any grounds that I could take her to court, to either, get the car signed over to me, or get my money back, at least half?

debs - Your Question:
Hi. My husband and I separated 9 yrs ago. We have 2 children and have always maintained a very amicable relationship. When we separated we remortgaged the house and he took £30,000 out of the equity in order to put a deposit down on a new flat. We agreed that that was me buying him out and that he would have no further claim on anything to do with our house , financially. His words were " I have taken all that I want from the house, it's yours now ". the £30,000 represented 50% of the estimated equity in the property. I have maintained the property 100% on my own, I have updated and landscaped the garden, adding value to the house. Due to my low income his name has remained on the mortgage, as I do not earn enough to be the sole mortgagee. Whilst this may have caused me ex inconvenience at times, it has not prevented him from getting finance subsequently. In a recent conversation about Wills and my wishes for the estate , he indicated that , despite accepting that he had paid nothing into the house for 9 years , that he feels that, should I ever sell the house, that he should reap some of the profit from the equity as it stands now. This has really unnerved me as I'd been safe , n the knowledge that the house was MINE. IF he did decide to go for a portion of my equity , would I have a valid case with regards to our verbal contract that was made when we split? Thanks for any advice

Our Response:
In this case you would have to seek legal advice. Should the matter go to court, then the court would take your claims into consideration. However, if he is still paying towards his share of the mortage, then he may have a case. It's difficult to be able to advise without knowing the full details and you say he hasn't paid into the house for nine years, yet you also say you do not earn enough to be the sole mortgagee, so is he still contributing? It will help you if you can do your best to prove this was a cut and dry financial agreement and he hasn't contributed since you made the equity split.
