Agreements to buy and sell
- Agreement for the supply of goods (non-retail) - £249
Use this document to create an agreement for selling goods to another trade party. This document cannot be used by anyone selling to consumers (i.e. persons not acting in the ordinary course of business). The agreement covers such issues as time for payment, consequences of non payment, rights of cancellation, etc. so that the terms and conditions of this agreement are clear.
- Buyer's notice to end a contract - £29
If you need to terminate a contract you have made with a seller of goods because the seller has breached any term which is fundamental to the contract, you can use this document to send notice to the seller that you are ending the contract. The breach must be so serious as to affect the very nature and performance of the contract itself. The document will allow you to seek compensation for your losses. In Scotland the term 'material' is used instead of 'fundamental', but both terms have the same meaning.
- Circular letter introducing conditions of sale or purchase - £30
When introducing new or replacement conditions of sale or purchase to a customer or supplier, you can use this document to create the necessary covering letter for the conditions of sale or purchase. This document creates two letters, one for the customer/supplier to keep, and one for them to sign and return to you acknowledging receipt. By acknowledging receipt, you will have evidence that they have received the conditions as if they do not receive these conditions, they will not be bound by them.
- Letter giving notice of termination of contract - £29
Some contracts will contain an express clause allowing a party to bring the contract to an end by giving written notice. Normally the contract will continue to run for a limited period after the notice is given, eg. if the contract says 'terminable on 14 days' written notice', then a notice of termination given on 3 February 2008 will bring the contract to an end on 17 February 2008. This document enables you to draft such a letter. NOTE:This document is inappropriate for use in employment contract situations.
- Notice of cancellation of order - £29
Use this document to give notice of your cancellation of an order made for the supply of goods or services where cancellation is permitted under the terms of any applicable contract. This document can only be used where the applicable contract permits cancellation.
- Purchase order - £29
This document is a purchase order with standard terms and conditions for the supply of goods. It has been drafted from the point of view of a purchaser of goods (as opposed to the seller) and is designed to protect the interests of the purchaser. The effect of a successful incorporation of these terms and conditions into any contract for the supply of goods would be that both purchaser and seller would be bound by the obligations set out.
- Sale of goods contract - £99
This document records the sale of goods by a private individual (i.e. a person not acting in the ordinary course of business). The agreement will record the price of the goods and make a formal acknowledgement that either the moneys have been paid for the item, or that a deposit has been paid and acknowledge the amount still outstanding. It allows any warranties or guarantees to be entered, if applicable.
- Terms and conditions for the reverse of a goods invoice - £125
This document contains a set of terms and conditions that are suitable for someone who sells goods to other businesses. A large volume of sales business is done in reliance upon standard terms and conditions of sale. These are commonly found on the reverse side of a seller’s invoice. It is very important to take the time to read the form in its entirety to ensure that it is appropriate for use in your individual situation. Please note that you cannot use this document if you are selling goods to consumers.
- Terms and conditions for website selling consumer goods and/or services - £149
- Assignment of debt and notice - £39
If you wish to assign the payment of a debt that is owed to you to another person (the assignee), you can use this document to do so. Once this debt has been assigned and the debtor has been notified of this assignment, the debtor will pay the debt to the assignee. This document will also create the required notice to the debtor, informing him/her that the debt has been assigned.
- Assignment of the benefit of a contract - £29
Use this document to assign the benefit (i.e. to transfer the benefit) of the rights you have under a contract. Most rights are capable of being assigned - for example, rights to benefits under insurance policies, rights to repayment of a loan, rights to purchase property and so on. However, it is important to note that you cannot assign any rights under a contract if the contract expressly prohibits that.
- Notice of assignment - £29
Use this document to create the notice required when a contract has been assigned. You must give notice to the other contracting party of the assignment. Without this notice, they are under no obligation to pay you (the person to whom the contract is assigned) and could continue to pay the person whom they first signed the contract with. You would not be able to claim any of the money.

- Notice of dissolution of partnership agreement - £45
Use this document to bring a partnership to an end where either the partnership agreement specifies that the partnership can be dissolved upon the service of notice or where the partnership agreement does not say that it cannot be dissolved by notice and the partnership has been entered into for an undefined time.
