Legal Answers
Q. I signed a sublease agreement a few weeks ago and I just noticed that they spelled my name wrong. Is it still valid?
A: To constitute a contract, the minds of the parties must meet with respect to the subject matter of the

agreement, and as to all of its essential terms. If one's name is misspelled on a contract, the contract itself is most likely still valid and enforceable. Such errors are referred to as “scrivener’s errors” and do not materially affect the terms of the contract. Further, if one has knowledge of the error and executes the contract nonetheless, one may be deemed to have accepted and/or waived the error/defect.
