Definitions for "adhesion contract"
A contract that does not allow room for changes in terms. A good example is...
A standardized set of agreements offered by one (usually the stronger) party to another on a ``take it or leave it' basis. An insurance policy is an example of such a contract. The insurer offers a personal auto policy, for example, that an individual may ``adhere to' (or not) but in any case the individual may not change any of its terms. Because it has the stronger position, the insurance company has the burden to spell out its terms precisely. Such contracts are interpreted strictly against the author of the contract. Not to be confused with aleatory contract.
A form contract prepared by one party, often a bank or consumer lender, presented to the other party while offering the other party no chance to negotiate the terms of the contract.
