You can’t just leave everything to the company unsettled because it is one of your duties and responsibilities, as a client, to settle and put everything in place before the termination of a contract. It is to ensure that whatever resources the two parties have are safeguarded. 2.     To Minimize Issues or Disputes Truth is that having a contract doesn’t mean that the transaction is free from disputes…
