A letter of agreement can clarify a relationship and the understanding of the parties or outline the expectations of each in the performance of a service or activity. As an indicator of the parties’ intent, this letter sometimes assumes the importance of a contract and is subject to a higher level of judicial scrutiny and interpretation; thus, the letter must be drafted to clearly and unambiguously identify what each party agrees to or expects and what their responsibilities are. The letter should also state the length of the agreement as well as the jurisdiction that governs it. The parties may want to consider whether to state quantifiable details such as costs, payments or deadlines.
