Thank you for the prompt reply.
What exactly constitutes a "meeting of the minds?" Must it be in person?
If the grantor were to approach the company online (much like I did on this website) to view the company's services and the contract (offer), and the company sent the grantor the physical contract through snail mail in writing and gave them the option, but not the obligation, to review the contract with an attorney (consideration), and required that it be signed and sealed in the presence of a notary public (acceptance), would that constitute due consideration and a "meeting of the minds?"
Should the company offer the grantor the option to respond to any concerns within the contract first?
