Final Settlement Agreement Letter
To mark the end of a legal dispute between two or more parties, there needs to be a final settlement agreement. This agreement takes note of all the terms and conditions on which the parties have agreed so as to broker peace. Violating any of the terms or agreements can allow one of the parties to take legal action against the other.
It is a legal document that could be produced in court and therefore, it should be written in as formal a manner as possible. The letter should clearly outline the names of the parties involved, the dispute which had arisen between the two and the terms on which the parties have agreed on for peace. The obligation of the plaintiff and defendant are both clearly stated. This letter should be written and signed well in advance as the dates can be relevant in case anyone initiates legal proceedings in the future.
The following is a sample letter for Final Settlement Agreement Letter.
