All verbal contracts or agreements have the possibility of becoming “WORTHLESS.” While most states may have some sort of wordage on a verbal contract, the lesson should always be that the verbal version must not be counted on to protect ones interests because every verbal agreement may be changed with a written contract.
The verbal contract will always be suspect since there may be a written version “hiding in the weeds” just waiting to pop out and derail what the verbal contract was supposed to fix.
The lesson therefore, should always be, especially where money is involved always have a written contract drafted by an attorney licensed in the state where the contract is written. State laws can influence the verbiage of the agreement.
