Deeds of Agreement

An agreement contains provisions that will protect our interests as much as possible. The formation of a contract requires certain steps or elements before it will be legally binding. They are: offer, acceptance, consideration and in some cases the formality of a written document.

To write a deed of agreement we may consider the following rules:

  • Find the following questions: Who, what, where, when, why, and how?
  • Take time to write an agreement to minimize error.
  • Use simple clear language. But one can use technical language if each of the parties understands it.
  • Each of the provisions in the agreement should use active voice, be direct and to the point.
  • Write out dates, numbers, payment amounts and proper nouns, so there will be no confusion in the agreement.
  • Try to use short separately numbered paragraphs.
  • Alternate the parties agreements or concessions in separate paragraphs dealing with one issue only.
  • Be specific as to details such as time, place, method of payment etc.
  • Agreements can be organized chronologically by task or by legal issue.
  • Use headlines to keep every point clear.
  • Use correct punctuation, spelling and layout.

The following components should be included in a deed of agreement for proper execution:

  1. Description of the deed ( Headline/Caption of the Deed)
  2. Date
  3. Description of the parties
  4. Recitals. For example: WHEREAS the parties to this deed is desirous to………….
  5. Description of subject matter, transfer or conveyance, price consideration etc.
  6. Testatum that is the operative part of a deed. For example: NOW THIS DEED THEREFORE WITNESSES as follows: …………….
  7. Description of the conditions or terms that are agreed by the parties.
  8. Testimonium. For example: IN WITNESS WHEREOF the parties hereto have signed this deed of agreement on the date first mentioned above…..
  9. Signature and attestation.
