Agreement Template / December 3, 2018 / Alissa Mcmahon
If the tenancy agreement is set but one or both of the parties do not agree on certain provisions in the tenancy agreement revisions are possible. In this scenario both parties should be extremely careful that proper wording is included especially if both parties have no education on law whatsoever. Putting down simple thoughts and compromised policies may not transcribe to proper legal wording. There are however straightforward alterations that both parties can change themselves. One example is the housing of pets in the property. Legally it is advised that any alterations done in the agreement should be signed or initialed by both parties as proof that they both agree to the alterations before the actual policy takes place. A tenancy agreement template is not universally perfect for everyone.
Then insert some wide ranging exceptions to this definition of confidential information that make the agreement a fair one. Typically you would tell the party that is going to receive your confidential data that they dont have to protect any of your materials if they happen to be already out there in the public domain are previously in the receiving partys possession (which means they developed the same thing on their own) or were given to the receiving party by a third party. These kinds of exceptions are important because its not fair to require the receiving party to lock up your materials if they really arent confidential to you. At the same time anything that doesnt fall within one of these exceptions really should be kept confidential because no one else is in possession of it.
Obviously a basic form contract is unlikely to cover all the bases for things like international joint ventures multi-level sales agency relationships or insurance services. These are agreements where the costs of an attorney are justified. Another downside to using an employment agreement template is the potential for building inflexibility into your business. In particular employment law changes may invalidate or make an existing agreement out of date. If you use the same job template for hundreds of employees and the law changes you may need to go back and have them re-sign new contracts. This wont always benefit the company though it is a small risk to take to get the significant legal protections afforded by even the simplest of contracts.
