When we enter into a contract to buy a property from someone we do not think to ourselves “Oh I hope he is honest and knows right from wrong”…No we expect them to be honest and thrustworthy and know right from wrong.
I’m sorry bettyboo, maybe i misunderstand what your trying to say here. You enter into a contract because you can’t trust people. Because if they were honest and know right from wrong, then a verbal agreement would be enough.
A contract is there to make sure both parties live up to the agreement and what penalties are in place if not.
