Is A Verbal Agreement Legally Binding In Nevada
April 10, 2021

Any ambiguity in a written contract must be interpreted vis-à-vis the party who prepared the agreement or chose the language used. See Consolidated v. Consolidated Realty – Management Co., 99 Nev. 635, 668 pp. 2d 284 (1983). Parties to an existing contract can enter into a valid agreement regarding its removal, removal or modification. However, it must be done with the mutual agreement of the parties. See Holland v. Crummer Corp., 78 Nev. 1, 638 pp. 2d 63 (1962). If the circumstances indicate that the parties are considering a certain type of contract, no binding contract is entered into if the procedure is not followed. See Shetakis Distributing Co.

v. Centel Communications Co., 104 Nev. 258, 756 pp. 2d 1186 (1988). Are there other situations in which such agreements are legally binding, other than that they are notarized? For example, if I had signed a contract myself and someone else had signed it, would they be held responsible for its terms? An agreement by a worker not to compete with his employer after the termination of the employment relationship imposes a restriction on trade and is not enforced on his terms, unless it is appropriate. If the public interest is not directly affected, it is examined whether it imposes greater restraint on the worker, which is reasonably necessary to protect the business and the goodwill of the employer. See Hansen v. Edwards, 83 Nev. 189, 426 P.2d 792 (1967).

Oral contracts are not recommended by most lawyers because they have difficulty proving violations and applying conditions. Relying solely on someone else`s word, it can be easy for the other party to commit fraud against you without being very afraid of the consequences. In addition, Nevada`s statute of limitations for receiving a breach of contract for a verbal agreement is four years instead of six years for a written contract. In practice, oral contracts can be difficult to prove in court if there is a dispute over the terms of the agreement or even whether there has ever been a final agreement — especially if a party expected the final agreement to be written.
