Vendor Contracts - Legally binding in another Country
Posted 13 October 2008 - 04:20 PM
One of my vendors that I was going to book with, when I ask for a contract to look over, they said they don't do contracts, just a deposit.
He mentioned that "Unless the contract was in Spanish and notarized it would hold no value here"
Does anyone know this to be true?

Regarding the legality - what is the liklihood you will pursue legal action against a vendor in Mexico? Think of how much that would cost - you would have to hire an attorney licensed in Mexico. This is one of the risks of doing business in another country.
Personally, I would not send a deposit without the terms clearly laid out - including cost (in USD or the current exchange rate?), services provided, cancellation policy, etc. If they want to call it a "contract" or a "term sheet", I dont think it matters.
Can you research the vendor either online or on the forum to make sure they have a good reputation for being honest and fair? That would influence my poll vote.

That way if they don't deliver a high resolution disc of images, you won't get stuck if they say "oh that was never included" and you know it was...get what I mean?

You've been given some good advice here, and I would like to just reiterate what others have said - it's definitely a good idea to have a contract. If for nothing else, it will at least help you to have some peace of mind to know that you are both on the same page as far as what the vendor has promised in the way of goods and services, the total cost, etc.
Hope your big day goes smoothly, and is all you have hoped it would be.
