Document overview Document Overview

A document sent by a party looking to build a final contract is called a Letter of Intent. This letter is also known as a Letter of Understanding and is sent to the other potential party and contains the bare bones of the whole agreement.

Note that a Letter of Intent isn't the actual contract - in other words, it's not the piece of paper that will create the underlying agreement - it's just the first step for a party to open negotiations about a contract that has already been discussed.

This Letter of Intent is quite easy, as it only needs to contain the necessary information that will end up being the building blocks of the contract

A completed document should be printed and signed.  

Applicable law Applicable law

Letters of Intent are a precedent to contracts in the United States, but they are not binding agreements. This Letter of Intent especially makes clear that neither party is agreeing to be bound, and that the Letter of Intent is just the beginning of negotiations.

That said, both Federal and state-specific laws govern contracts, depending on the contents and subject matter of the contract. State laws govern general contract principles like formation and mutual understanding. Federal laws may restrict what services can be contracted for (for example, you may not contract for anything illegal) and certain broad categories, like contracting for something that looks more like an employment relationship.
