While drafting a business letter of intent, there's a number of issues you need to consider _ 1 _ It's best mentioned that it is a non_binding document. Information surrounding the issue should be restricted to the absolute minimum whilst remaining in accordance with the document. The other party or parties may become impatient & seek legal advice if you don't stick to the rules.
LOI's are the legal equivalent of "almost pregnant." Letters of Intent emphatically state that. They state that they are not formal agreements, and then often proceed to set forth agreed terms of the proposed transaction. Given this paradox, if the deal goes sour, one party can argue [in court] that those agreed_upon points were, in fact, agreed upon _ or, in fact, a binding contract. And, in some cases, furthermore, that the party relied on the LOI and has monetary damages based on such reliance."
