Week 3 Individual Paper
When an individual is looking to receive a specific product or service from another individual a contract is a viable piece of the puzzle. When you look at the different aspects of how a contract comes about both parties have to be aware of all the outlying terms and conditions.
Mary displayed an offer to Liam and Mike to paint her house for a specific amount of $2500.00 dollars. When she spoke the terms of what service she wanted to receive from these two individuals she was speaking aloud an offer. A contract is formed when four viable steps are taken; offer, acceptance, intent of legal ...view middle of the document...

If Liam and Mike would have made contact with her then she would have been able to tell them that she had changed her mind with the terms and would rather not enter a legal contract with them. Liam and Mike had one thing in their favor which is that the offered was expressed in front of a witness that could stand up for these two individuals if they decided to take action in court. Liam and Mike have the burden of proof that they would have to take before a judge and make them believe that Mary offered them a contract and with having a witness this would help their case before the court (Melvin, 2011).
In this case, I would say that Mary should win the case before the judge that Liam and Mike should have not started painting her house until they had made contact with her and the legal agreement was made between all parties. If I was the judge presiding over this case I would make Mary pay the gentleman a small fee for the trouble that they may have incurred for the misunderstanding? On the same note, Mary should always think her ideas and offers through completely before telling other parties and involving their services or products. I understand that Bill’s offer was more appealing to her and it would save her money but she shouldn’t be able to walk away from the situation completely innocent because of her own actions. If I was Liam and Mike, this would definitely make it to court because of all the expense they were out for half way painting the house and the loss of working hours for another customer.
