Adhesion Contract

By on August 17, 2019

An adhesion contract is a legal agreement between at least two parties which is one-sided favoring one party, usually the party that drafted it.

Terms of such contracts can sometimes be so grossly unfair that it beggers belief that anyone on the wrong end of the terms would sign it.

However, it must be noted that a lot of times, the predatory terms are hidden in fine print.

Courts are known to refuse enforcement of contract provisions when an agreement has been deemed as an adhesion contract.

Sometimes also referred to as a take-ti-or-leave-it contract, some common contracts that are often found to be so include:

  • Mortgage loan contracts
  • Franchise agreements
  • Leases with billion-dollar landlords
  • Life insurance policies
  • etc

While this might offer some protection to victims, it is always best to know exactly what you are getting into before signing contract agreements.

There is never any guarantee that an unfair contract can be deemed as an adhesion contract.
