In the context of sharing agreements, an agreement is often used to define the expectations and responsibilities of the various parties. These MOUs generally deal with issues such as: (1) liability for maintenance and repair costs, (2) insurance and liability, (3) staff and communication, and (4) conflict resolution. Whether the terms of these agreements are legally enforceable, as a final contract, depends on the intent of the parties. Therefore, the parties to a sharing agreement should consider in due course the legal status of their agreement as part of the negotiation process.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a legal document describing a bilateral agreement between the parties. It expresses an agreement of will between the parties and indicates a proposed common course of action, not a legal obligation. It is a more formal alternative to a gentlemen`s agreement, but in general the strength of a treaty is lacking. Parties often develop agreements with a language that blurs the lines between a treaty and an agreement. The question is whether the parties intend to be legally bound by the terms of the agreement. While what the parties call the written document may prove their intent, it does not determine the nature of the agreement the parties have entered into.
