Memorandum of Understanding
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is an agreement that documents the common purposes of two or more parties when they do not wish to presume legally binding obligations. An MOU is usually less complicated and less detailed than a contract, though it still provides a framework and set of rules to guide the parties in carrying a project or working arrangement.

A contract is a binding written negotiated agreement between two or more parties, particularly one which is enforceable by law. It puts an obligation on each party to do or not do something, and it also gives each party the legal right to request the performance of whatever the other parties promised to them. In order to be valid, all parties must be legally competent to enter a contract, the mutuality of the agreement and of its obligations must exist, and there must be meticulous consideration.
Choosing between a Memorandum of Understanding and Contract
If you do not wish to be bound by the document until a formal contract comes into force, you should use a Memorandum of Understanding. If you wish to be bound by this document, we recommend that you enter into a contract.
