Signing contracts – read it all, especially the fine print.
Whenever you are asked to sign a document or a contract you should read it all, including any “fine print” to ensure you understand what you are signing. Never be afraid to ask for help to understand a document. This may include asking a lawyer for advice.
Contracts are legal documents that require you to do or not to do something. If you do not follow a contract that you have signed, you may be liable for damages or there may be other consequences. If the other party to the contract does not follow through with their obligations you might have similar remedies available to you.
