Do verbal agreements hold up in court?
If you have entered into a verbal agreement and it hasn’t been put in writing, it is still enforceable.
Verbal agreements are just as legally enforceable as a written ones. However, you may run into problems when you need to prove the agreement existed.
You have the right to pursue your claim, but you will need to prove the agreement existed and the terms of the agreement. This can be difficult if there is nothing in writing.
Advice Before Court:
We recommend booking a one hour conference with your civil lawyer before going to court. You will get expert advice on what you should do, the likely outcome and any preparation you need to do beforehand. You will also get a fixed quote on the cost for you to be represented in your local court on the day.
If you prefer, you can meet your lawyer at your local court without the need for a conference beforehand. Some examples of when this will suit you are adjournments, simple pleas or when your case is listed for directions from the court (not a final hearing). And if you are not on bail, you may not even need to attend.
