372 pages of legal mumbo jumbo
haha. the writing in even a simple contract show that the legal profession have really outdone themselves at causing general confusion, vague terms, and sometimes re-defining the meanings of ordinary words. there've been cases of contracts referring to non existent documents etc.
no wonder they have no idea what they're signing.
and even through all that, simple errors are easily made.
for example, what happened to me. when an incorrect addition to a title deed, by the sellers lawyer, (because of some confusion due to 2 properties both being on one arb document at one time). i called those lawyers and said to them that the contract clearly stated that i would be owner of both properties, but they assured me that the document was correct and was for only one property. twice i checked, with same outcome.
then after all signed and done, i got a (rather nervous) phone call from seller's lawyer saying they had made an error and accidentally (legally) sold us 2 properties for the price of one. HAHAHA. i couldn't help laughing, and told them i'd informed them twice etc (via email and phone call). most amusing. but we are honest people and i said. i told you so. and ok to 'amend' the contract to make it right. However, they were very lucky because it was already a done deal, and i legally owned an extra property. mistake or not. dumbasses.
and the contract had so much mumbo jumbo in it that it made me laugh.
hope you enjoyed my little story. which is true btw. aaahh, t'is friday after all. hehe.
