Are You Properly Formalizing Your Business Intentions in a Proper Letter of Intent? Not having a properly drafted letter of intent may lead to loss of business as well as ambiguity in setting out the proposed terms of an intended sale. After all, when thinking of buying a business, the intentions to buy should be clearly set out at the very beginning.
There is no filtering through legally written clauses and other such unnecessary information at this stage in the project. When the letter of intent spells out each detail clearly, the seller can come back with alternate terms of which he or she would be more accepting. This negotiation can go back and forth without the rewriting of lengthy pages that either party may misconstrue.
