When signing contracts should I initial every page of the contract?

This answer was rated:

When signing contracts should I initial every page of the contract? I read somewhere that I should do that to prevent changes being made to parts of the contract after it is executed.

BartEsq :

Welcome! Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Customer:

Great

BartEsq :

For the most part, contracts are enforceable against the party that signs the contract. In your case, the other party would usually have you initial specific clauses or pages just to ensure that you read it and cant claim a contract defense called unconsionability.

Customer:

We are both signing the contract.

BartEsq :

But if you are concerned about the other party changing the contract or specific clause, initialling the pages or clause is a good way to ensure they dont try to change a clause or page.

Customer:

Okay so it is sort of up to me

BartEsq :

Correct.

Customer:

Okay thank you

BartEsq :
