We will always do our best to act in our mutual interest, but sometimes it’s best to have a few things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what, and what happens if things go astray.

You won’t find complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text in this contract. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. We do want what’s best for the clarity and safety of both parties, both now and in the future.
