What happens if there is an ambiguous term in a contract?

Q:   What happens if you enter into an Agreement and there is ambiguous language?\"\"

A:   If the person making the offer means one thing and the person accepting the offer reasonably means another, then there is no contract.  Be aware that just because you failed to put something into a contract or there was a mistake, does not mean it the contract is ambiguous.

The court looks at the contract as a whole to determine whether a contract is ambiguous.

Remember, courts only enforce contracts, they will not re-write them.
