Did you ever lose a friend over an unpaid debt? Get stuck with a houseguest who has no intention of moving out? Quarrel with a relative over use of the family car? For those who follow Toler and Hutchison’s wise counsel, these common disputes need never happen. Through dozens of true stories, they show how “putting it in writing”—creating a clear written agreement—prevents the kinds of bitter misunderstandings that can destroy relationships and devastate families. Here’s detailed advice on how to choose the right words—and enforce them, too. To make it really easy, they provide perforated forms with model agreements for lending money or property, adult children moving home, sharing a pet, taking care of aging parents, and more.

This book and the accompanying agreements are a life-saver! Just a few weeks ago, my daughter decided to move back in to my home after completing college. I was nervous. We'd lived apart for four years now and my husband and I have created a new lifestyle (without the kids!) To my daughters initial dismay, I had her fill out an agreement with me that outlined the guidelines under which we'd all be living. We worked out who would clean what, buy what, and what the privacy expectations were. So far, so good. We haven't had many arguments and I think my daughter is pleasantly surprised that we aren't treating her like a child. I can't wait to break out this book again when I need help with another family or friend issue.
