Missouri contract law is codified in Title 28 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. This section, titled Contracts and Contractual Relations, contains six chapters that explain how contracts are to be handled between parties and by state courts. If you or your business have a contractual dispute with another party and some part of the dispute concerns conduct that took place within the state, you can use Missouri contract law to resolve the issue by filing a complaint in state court.
One of the most important points for business owners to know is that Missouri contract law has a one year statute of frauds. This means that any contract that extends beyond a year must be in writing and must be signed by the parties to be enforceable. Verbal contracts are only enforceable if the term of the contract is less than one year.
The only exceptions are agreements that Missouri contract law specifically requires to be in writing, regardless of the term of the contract. For example, extensions of credit that use co-signers must be in writing and must be signed by the third-party guarantors to be enforceable. Assignments of leases or other interests in real property must also be in writing. Read more about Missouri contract law from the links on this Business.com page.
