A: This type of language in a contract is technically acceptable. However, it may create issues down the road depending on the subject matter on the agreement, whether it’s related to a condition which impacts a party’s requirement to perform, or an array of other things. For a fuller assessment, you’ll want to consult with an attorney who practices in the area the contract covers about whether this language may leave you open to liabilities or potentially unforeseen circumstances.
