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.

I've received a call from a debt collecting agency saying they have undertaken a claim from a publication agency for an advert I supposedly took out with them in 2015. I've never received any information by post/email and I genuinely have no recollection of any contact with them. The only confirmation they have is a recording of an alleged phone call when I'm supposed to have confirmed the order. The debt collector says if I don't pay immediately that will charge me 50% interest per day. The invoice is for £199. How do I stand? Thanks in advance for your help.. Rob

Hi, thank you for your response to my question on the January 10th. I have read the mooring agreement that was given to us the day after we arrived and it does state that 3 months notice is required. But as we weren'tgiven the agreement until after we arrivedwe didn't know about the notice period. Also when I was given the mooring agreement it wasn't stated that that's what it was. It was handed to me by a secretary and she said it was their bank details if we wanted to set up a standing order. If we'd known about the notice period we would have tried to renegotiate a different arrangement or not taken the mooring at all. The Citizens Advice Bureau say it's my fault and I should have asked for the mooring agreement and basically I don't have a leg to stand on and the marina manager can use the courts/bailiffs to get the money for the 3 months notice period. Can they do this?When I spoke to the manager he just repeated that it's 3 months notice. Thanks in advance.

What about blackmail.. If a written statement is given that Photos and other items obtained for the use and intent of insult and abuse are not to be used if certain conditions are met - then after are share on media or within social community after they get what thay want. What is the value of holding a written agreement and what can be the consequence ?!

Hi I live on a narrowboat and in November 2016 my partner arranged for 2 months mooring at a marina which he paid for in full in advance. The mooring started from the 01/12/2016 and as we understood could be reviewed at the end of January. On the 4th of January I spoke to the manager and said that we would definitely be leaving at the end of January to be told that we can't leave without giving 3 months notice and if we left we would still be liable to pay for the 3 months.We didn't even know there was a mooring agreement until the day after we arrived. We also feel it is unreasonable to ask for a 3 month notice period when we specified that we wanted 2 months short term mooring. How do I handle this? Thanks.

Our Response:
I'm afraid you would really need to read the terms and conditions of your mooring agreement, which should have been issued to you at the time. Complaining directly should be your first course of action and if you are not satisfied with the result, then you should complain to the Waterways Ombudsman, link here, only if you are convinced you are in the right. If you have not received paperwork, then really it is up to you to try to solve the issue with the mooring company directly. The mooring company has no recourse to charge you a default if no paperwork was issued.

I entered into a 12 month contract leasing a taxi,there was a clauae in the contract saying if I cancel the contract before the end of the 12 months I would have to pay for the remainder term however the lessor as decided to pull out early. Are they allowed? There is nothing in the contract about them pulling out, can they cancel it early? There reason for doing so is it not making them enough money.

I agreed a new contract on the phonewith EE. As they were processing it they cut me off and when I rang back they said the bloke had made a mistake and they couldn't actually agree that deal. Now they won't honour it. Surely as both of us had agreed it is legally binding?

Hi, I had a few items that were ordered and should have been delivered at a certain time but didn't.This happened on several occasions, I spoke with several different people and had correspondence via email and text and had been offered goodwill gestures which they haven't adhered to. Two amounts of £50.00 and £80.00.They are now saying these amounts were sent in error. But I had these offered by email and text so I have them written in black and white. They are now offering me a £30.00 gift voucher! As I have what they originally said in writing do they have to honour it?

Siya - Your Question:
Hi everyonePlease assist, I was in the employ of a consulting company for a 3months fixed-term contract.In the beginning of my contract, the manager and myself sat down to view the contract and salary packages. We had it all on paper and signed. She then verbally explained to me that I will receive commission for every placements I make. The salary was not attractive at first and I had no problem with it, provided that I receive commission. I have now received a notification that my contract is comming to an end, and will not be renewed. My worry is that I have only been paid my Basic salary without any commission for candidates that I have placed. She was smart enough not to mentioned any thing regarding commission on my contract of employment, however this was agreed upon verbally. I've had a conversation with her regarding my commission but she told me that I won't receive commission for my candidates because my contract of employment says nothing about commission.Kindly advise on how do I claim for my commission in this regard

Our Response:
You would have to ring ACAS regarding this, especially as your commission package was not mentioned in the contract. However, if other employees are paid the same way, then you may have a case to answer if your employer decides to withhold money owed through commission.

My partner entered into an agreement with two friends to buy an apartment abroad.All the legal fees etc. were split 50% my partner and 25% each the other two (a married couple).Contracts were due to be exchanged this Monday but six days before we got a message stating that they had changed their minds and were backing out of the deal, no explanation.My partner has paid out her 50% of the fees. As stated in the Legal Contract from the Law Firm, "the withdrawing party are responsible for all fees outstanding or due", can my partner chase the other two for her share of the fees already paid as they withdrew from the deal without even discussing it with us first so she has lost a substantial amount through no fault of her own.

Well just spent 2 hours explaining a problem and then submitted but no acknowledgement so no clue if you got it or not?!

Our Response:
We have received your comment. Unfortunately, we can only give very general guidance to point you in the right direction, which would be in your case to seek legal advice. By putting down the deposit you have entered into a legally binding contract. If the company has sent you the contract, then you would do well to read the terms. It is highly unlikely you will receive your deposit back and the dealership still 'may' be able to pursue you for the amount outstanding through court. Much depends upon the goodwill of the dealership to allow you to terminate the contract and whether it thinks it would have a chance at gaining the money through court.

Hello. Incidentally I am absolutely sober as I write this. On the night of 4th December whilst it was late at night in Australia and I was under the influence of alcohol and I saw an ad for a car that had been for sale for some months in the UK and I got carried away and rang the dealership and offered to buy the car at the advertised price.No negotiation. The dealer asked me for GBP1000 deposit which I agreed to. .all this done over the phone. Then within 12 hours and now with a clear head it hit me that GBP30,000 was AUD50,000, and that was without shipping costs.I emailed the dealer saying I had made a grave error of judgement and I could not proceed and apologised. Dealer didn't answer email so I rang and spoke in lieu of the dealer to an employee who said no worries he understood completely and would get The Boss to call me. A call that never came.In response to my email saying I was not going ahead, in the same email chain he completely ignored my email and sent back words to the effect that it was well done on my purchase and find attached my invoice for GBP30,0000. I responded politely but distinctly last night simply saying that he appears to have overlooked the content of my email below saying I was not proceeding, highlighting the relevant bits regarding me not going ahead in bright yellow background.In my bank in Australia it is a "pending payment" went physically to the bank today and tried to delete the pending payment. Told cant do. But once it becomes a real payment on December 12th they say I fillout a "dispute form" and they will get my GBP1000 back. Don't worry. Then I get home tonight to read an email from UK dealer to say that my GBP1000 is gone and they will legally pursue me for the remainder unless I agree to buy a car from them within the next 2 years. I have and will not respond, as during any proceedings all this is admissible duringDiscovery. I wonder whether l'll get my GBP1,000back or its truly lost? I believe the dealer won't go me for the full GBP30,000 because it will be a he said she said argument.But my threatening email now tonight makes me extremely upset and distressed that my bank's no worries attitude about my deposit is optimistic.It took 6 people in a huddle at the bank today to tell me their way forward.None of it in writing of course. I'm a 57yo male recently unemployed, and while AUD1709 loss of holding deposit won't break the bank, being unemployed it now is a material sum of money to me. I have no possibility of getting legal aid and for such a relatively low sum of money to engage a lawyer seems mad, and as for legal friends I'm too ashamed and embarrassed over what's happened to admit it to them. I feel so stupid. The questions?Is my deposit gone or no worries as the bank says? Am I right to assume the UK dealer won't pursue me for the whole GBP30,000 in the courts unless I agree to his ludicrous demands for me to buy an as yet unknown car at an unknown price in the ne

Hi there i have been in the process of buying a house, the price was agreed by the estate agent, who also turns out to have a vested interest in the sale!!We agreed the price, i signed the contract but my solicitor hadn't sent the contractor to the vendors solicitor instead he requested a portfolio which seemed missing.it seems that he possibly knowingly agreed to sale under the knowledge that the site maps were incorrect and part of my house is built on land he does not own.He said this can take months... my solicitor is not happy with the whole thing and the vendor has offered me to rent the house in the interim till it is resolved however he has stipulated that after 12 months if the issue is not resolved he can retract the house or i can walk away.I have spent over £6K on the house with fitted made to measure furniture, concrete etc, he had given me the house key to move my stuff in as we had verbally agreed it was only gonna take a week or two to be resolved, it turns out now the land has gone to the crown.I have gave up my last property and stayed with family, i have 4 children and now i don't know where i stand...i have invested so much money into the property.Can the vendor legally withdraw his offer of sale agreed to me??

I recently took a client to Bristol Small Claims Court for unpaid commission. The client accepted that he owed the money to my company and even paid the first £300 of an agreed stage payment arrangement "pending settlement of a probate matter", or so he said. He renaged on the rest of the payments so I took court action with a supporting email trail over 12 month period wherein the client admitted owing the money and then he decided hey ho why should I pay?. It was never in doubt that he owed the money.Despite this, the judge said my client didn't sign a contract so dismissed my case. How can that be right ?

Ihad to quite the job I was earning 200kd monthly to this present job because I new I will have a 20 or 30kd increase. First week of September He told me I was terminated and he will give me till the 2th of December to get a new job. Also he has never increased the salary.

He also told me my visa will be cancelled under his company but the ministry will give me 3 months to fine a job. Please what can I do?.

Hi. I just wanted because someone wanted to sue me. We agreed to buy a business last year but I did not have the money yet. So this person said he will put the money out first and signed the agreement that said non-refundable security deposit. 1 month later, he wanted to back out and wanted me to pay him the money. I signed the agreement only as witness and not the purchaser. Does this person has the right to collect money from me or sue me or do I have the right to sue this person for harassing me and forcing me to pay the money?

John is the director of a construction company. He decided to have the office building completely redecorated. Chris, the Director of Chris Interiors, agreed to do the work for £6,000. John paid £1,000 in advance and agreed to pay the balance on satisfactory completion of the work. John also employs a new project manager, Peter, to take over for six months while he visits his relatives in the United States. Peter agreed to start on 1 June and not to work for any other construction company during his six months’ contract. When Chris finished the redecoration, John complained that the painting was substandard. John demanded Chris to repaint all the walls and he refused to pay any more money. Chris is now threatening legal action. Peter has written to John saying he will not be working for him because he has been offered a better job by his rival company at the end of the road.

Peter has written to John saying he will not be working for him because he has been offered a better job by his rival company at the end of the road. The legal position of John and Peter Can John stop him working for his rival? 1. Consider specific performance. 2. Consider an injunction. 3. Consider damages if Peter does not work for John and he has to pay a replacement project manager more than he would have paid Peter.

Hi, I'm in a position where the verbal contract I entered into was substantively different to the written contract I was given to sign. What a sales consultant described as a 'refundable retainer reimbursed on sale of my business' verbally, turned into a 'non-refundable deposit totally independant of any commission charges' on the written contract. What they do by sleight of hand is to move the deposit amount across and add it on to the minimum agreed sale price, so everything looks above board and proper. Of course, though the sale price is a moveable feast, so in essence they keep the deposit and indeed, if they get lucky and the actual sale price is above the minimum sale price stipulated then they also take commission on it. It's all smoke and mirrors but I understand the concept of good faith in UK contracts is pretty poor. I'm stuck.

Hello, I am a freelance teacher in Ireland and I have been working with a company for nearly a year. They promised to send a written contract for several months and never did...they also started treating my like an employee by telling me what to do and how to do it (changing my schedule and demanding me to work more than I agreed to). They said they were going to send a self-employment contract once again and I waited...they also asked me (verbally) to get rid of my other clients so that I could only focus all of my time on them. I agreed to this as long as they promised me some kind of consistent work for a year and they said yes and that they would send me a contract the next day...they of course didn't send it and then just days before they were going to pay me for next month's classes, they completely bailed. I had already dropped my other clients after they asked me to (since we had a verbal agreement that I would be guaranteed consistent work). They now will not return my phone calls or emails and are avoiding me. They also took over my teaching account and deleted my own account off of it so that I had to open a new account and no longer had access to those students who were in my account. We did have a verbal agreement that IF they ever stopped working with me in the future, that it would not be sudden and that they would phase out my classes gradually so that I would not be left in a bad financial situation (since I promised to get rid of my other clients). I do not have this agreement in writing though. What are my rights? Can I get compensation? I was also thinking of filing under employment instead of self-employment when I do my taxes since I felt that they didn't treat me as a self-employed individual. I also had students complain to me that they felt exploited by this company. Is there anywhere I can report them to? Sorry for so many details and questions, but I feel very betrayed and want compensation and am not sure what my rights are or how I would even get compensation.

HIggs - Your Question:
Can anyone help me with this I worked on a project under a gentlemen's agreement and now the main contractor is not paying me and it's says I am liable for lads I have no written contract and he never informed me throughout the project of any penalty clause ,Thanks

Our Response:
You would have to seek legal advice regarding this to see if you have a case to take the matter to court/small claims court. There will be a contract in place, due to the fact you have carried out work. However, trying to prove who is responsible for your workers may be more difficult and if you as the sub-contractor has employed other workers, then paying them may fall to you. Any evidence you have either via email/text or payments through your bank account will help justify a contract.

As a member of a sailing club, I was asked by the commodore - an officer of the club - to source and provide several printed fabric banners for club use during a specific, repeating event. The sizes, style and other details were agreed at a meeting between us and, apart from an injunction to 'keep the price down and let me know the costs', there was no limit placed nor specific sum agreed. After collecting multiple quotes, and with time very short, I acquired the relevant goods from a commercial supplier and, in good faith, paid that supplier myself. The goods were taken to the club and displayed for members, including the commodore, to approve and agree their use. The costs were communicated then, acceptance of the goods was agreed, and directions given by the commodore to me for the location and means of display. This was done as he directed, the banners were displayed on the club premises for a week, and after the end of the event they were removed by the commodore and retained. I subsequently provided a letter of request for payment to the commodore, submitting copies of the £319 invoices I'd paid the commercial supplier. After a delay, I was sent an email of refusal to pay, but offering an 'ex gratia' sum of £100. There is no element of profit to me. The costs were demonstrably less than other suppliers. Does a contract exist and - in event of intransigence - can I seek recourse at law, or otherwise?
