I need help creating a waiver. A couple continues to threaten taking legal action against me over the fact that they were not happy with the age the puppies were going to leave, and the fact they had to sign a puppy contract. They demanded their Non Refundable; only if no pups were born, be returned to them. I told them that I would make up a waiver as they ignored my evidence and continued to send me rude, and sometimes threatening emails. They agreed to sign it, I'm just not quite sure about how to go about it. It needs to state that they may not take any legal action against me for no good reason, or hold me accountable for anything, and they requested that it only he binding upon return of deposit.
