After re-reading my blog post from last Tuesday regarding the terms and conditions we agree to on a daily basis, I thought I should clarify that not ALL adhesion contracts are enforceable.
For example, South Carolina courts view adhesion contracts in vehicle purchase agreements (the agreement the car dealer has you sign) with “considerable skepticism”. As a refresher, adhesion contracts have been defined as standard form, non-negotiable, contracts that are offered on a take-it-orleave-it basis.
Courts will not enforce adhesion contracts if the terms are unconscionable. Certainly, many of these contracts are enforceable but I did not want you to come away with the impression that all of them are enforceable.Share this blog post:
