Memorandum Of Understanding Vs Letter Of Agreement

Most businessmen, government authorities, legal entities and individuals often use these two entities in their daily lives to deal with another party in order to achieve a common goal. The parties must understand clearly that, if they want their decisions to be binding on each other, they can enter into an agreement that gives the parties their essential rights and can enforce them in court. If the parties do not want a legally binding person, they can engage in the MOU. In general, no party is exposed to liability during the negotiation period under the common law; Responsibility arises only when the parties have executed a formal and written contract. If the written document makes it clear that it is not binding, this rule does not create any liability. A MOU or LOI is often used by buyers and sellers to conclude their agreement on the essential terms of a transaction, such as price, closing date, financing, diligence and other important transaction points. The agreement or THE LOI may offer a certain level of comfort, that the parameters of a workable deal are present and that the parties can continue to conclude a contract and possibly the due diligence of the transaction. The details, constituents and remaining issues that are excluded from the agreement or the LOI are generally dealt with by the parties and their lawyers during the drafting of the contract. Although an agreement or law is almost everywhere designed as non-binding, it often contains binding provisions on confidentiality and marketing or negotiation of exclusivity.

The binding and non-binding hybrid nature of an agreement or law raises the question: when is a soft or non-binding law mandatory? Let`s take a look at the loi jurisprudence. A model law contains a broad disclaimer indicating that the parties are not bound by its terms, unless a separate binding agreement has been negotiated and implemented by the parties. However, despite the existence of complete disclaimers, some courts have held that a LOI can justify a “meeting of minds” under an enforceable contract sufficient to obtain damages for the offences. This also applies if one of the parties had a subjective belief that it never intended to be bound by the LOI. The rationale for this conclusion arises from the Tribunal`s use of an objective test rather than a subjective review procedure to determine the existence of a binding contract: the interpretation of an offer or acceptance is not what the party claiming or intending to say, but what a reasonable person would have found useful in the parties` position. In determining whether a law is binding on the parties, Florida courts will generally consider several factors in determining whether “a meeting of spirits” has taken place, including: (1) the nature of the contract at issue; (2) the number of agreed terms in relation to all conditions to be included; (3) the amount of information to be ironed; (4) relations between the parties; and (5) the degree of formality of similar contracts in relation to the LOI.
