Hinckley, MN asked in Contracts and Consumer Law for Minnesota


I and noticed today my copy of said contract has no signatures and my typed name on the contract is not correct. Should I not have a copy of the contract containing the signatures of both parties?

A: From your answer it seems the contract was prepared by the seller. Since you have the goods you are acting in accordance with the contract and so are they. That is a manifestation of mutual assent to the terms. So signatures are not needed (although that is certainly not the best ordinary course practice) to bind you and should not prevent a suit for breach if either party does not perform.
