{Instruction: Explain clearly how many of one party's goods or services will be equal to how
many of the other party’s.}

{Instruction: Delete the paragraph above that does NOT apply.}

{Instruction and Tip: In many barter agreements, any disagreement or dispute that arises
turns out to revolve around a misunderstanding about the value of one or both parties'
goods/services. If parties are very clear in this section, these types of disputes can be avoided.
For example, “Car washes will be exchanged for fresh eggs.” is unclear . . . how many eggs
for each car wash?? “Each car wash may be exchanged for 2 dozen Grade A eggs.” is much
more clear to both parties.}

a) they are over the age of 18 and have the intent and capacity to enter into a binding agreement

b) the Products offered for barter can legally be exchanged by them

c) the information included here is correct, to the best of their knowledge.

shall be readily marketable and merchantable. Either party shall not be obligated to purchase,

assigns, and employees, from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, losses, liabilities
and costs, including attorneys’ fees, arising out of any alleged breach of the foregoing warranties
