In most types of transactions, a detailed legal contract is a must to finalise the interests of both parties as well as their responsibilities before closing a deal. In the world of business, such a contract is referred to as a sales and purchase agreement (SPA).
An SPA provides a framework for how a transaction should go. It also specifies exactly what is being bought and sold and what is excluded from the sale. An SPA allows participating parties to negotiate and agree upon a proper price. It also serves as a record for deposits made by the buyer and when the final place is going to take place.
A number of risks surround the creation of SPA, but none is as precarious as that of unintended ambiguity wherein certain terms, words, or phrases are subject to more than one interpretation. When that happens, the translated financial provisions of the SPA may not be the same as what was originally agreed by both parties, resulting to significant loss and future disagreements.
