Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
What sort of contract is this? Has money changed hands yet? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
Thank you very much.
Typically, you would sign a document along the following lines:
"MEMORANDUM TO MEMORIALIZE RESCISSION OF CONTRACT
Whereas, Party A and Party B signed a contract on [DATE] ("The Contract") for the purpose of a salon apprenticeship followed by a guarantee of 6 months employment.
Whereas, The Contract was based on a false material fact regarding the guarantee of employment.
The parties hereby agree to rescind The Contract effective immediately and The Contract shall have no further force or effect. All monies paid by Party A to Party B shall be returned within seven calendar days from the date of this Memorandum.
Please understand that this is only a general suggestion for how something like this would typically be drafted. It is up to you to tailor as necessary to fit your particular circumstances.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
Absolutely. There is no one specific way to go about rescinding a contract in any state. Doing so is simply a matter of properly identifying the contract, the parties, the material mistaken fact, the rescission, and any specific details that need to be addressed (i.e. returning money paid). It's something that's governed by general principles of contract law, nothing more or less.
Again if there is anything more I can do for you just let me know. It's my pleasure....
You are very welcome! Have a pleasant evening.
