Brookline, MA asked in Contracts for Massachusetts

Q: Signed contract is dated a year out 11/19 for an agreement today 1/19. Is it valid? Or may we cancel with no violations?

Wedding planner contract where she is not satisfying conditions and we have located venues and negotiation amounts. The contract was signed on the day of 11/2018 but contract has a date of 11/2019. May we drop the planner with no cancel fees, since contract is not binding do to that date error? Or able to negotiate a legitimate contract where planner can agree to payment for what she currently accomplished? (Vendors through her) the date of 11/19 was possibly a typo but fortunate for us. Thank you

A: If she is not performing the duties under the contract, that might qualify as breach of contract. It's key to have a lawyer review the contract. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself.
