An important difference between written and oral contracts is the requirement that sets deadlines for filing appeals in relation to the contract. For oral contracts, the statute of limitations is four years. NMSA 37-1-4. For written contracts, the general limitation period is six years. NMSA No. 37-1-3. However, in the case of a written contract for the sale of goods, the limitation period is four years, unless the parties enter into a shorter contract. NMSA 55-2-725. The shorter period should not be less than one year.
Trade agreements sometimes use „honour clauses.“ What is an honor clause in an agreement? Where the contract is a sale of property (i.e. soft goods) between merchants, acceptance must not reflect the terms of the offer for a valid contract, unless, to protect the interests of the buyer and seller, more complex and/or long-term transactions require a written agreement consisting of reciprocal commitments that remain in effect until all parties are satisfied. If one party does not comply with the terms of the contract, the other party may take legal action. A contract is a voluntary and legally enforceable undertaking between two responsible parties who perform (or cannot perform) an act for remuneration. When a party files an action in which it alleges a breach of contract, the judge must first respond to the existence of a contract between the parties. The complainant must demonstrate four points of view to prove that there was a contract: CONTRACT.
