Documentation is King.
Many Chinese immigrants do not know the importance of legal documents in Canada. There should be documents as the proof of the transaction. A written document will be a more powerful support than an oral commitment. Therefore, the parties have to have written documents, even in the transactions between friends and relatives. Moreover, the documents must be clear and complete enough to express what the parties agreed. People should not carelessly prepare the documents themselves, nor should they sign the documents which they do not understand. Once the documents have been signed, it will be hard for the people to claim the document is wrong.
