Mosey on over to Spanplan to check out a recent Q & A that I did on legal issues facing Wedding business professionals. Enjoy!
Question Originally Appearing on AVVO
Question (from anonymous in Oregon):
“I have a dj business. to make a contract legit what do i need to do?: need to know if both parties have to sign in front of a notary?”
Response (from Attorney Rob Schenk):
Contracts do not need to be notarized to be legally enforceable.
A well written contract will set forth the material terms of service that you will perform, and the terms of price and payment. I highly recommend that you contact an attorney in order to have a contract that does the job.
With DJs, there will be issues of playlists, announcements, hours per set, etc., so I recommend you retain an entertainment or business attorney that has drafted these types of contracts before.
Moral of the Story: Attorneys help make contracts legit.
