Definitions and defined terms are the key elements to understand contracts mutually by all parties. Even the tiny misspellings and inaccuracies may confuse you or your colleagues at the wrong moment.

Here are the common low-risk issues with definitions and defined terms that Loio can find and mark in your contract:

Duplicated definitions

This case displays when a term is defined more than once throughout the agreement. We flag this issue no matter if the duplicates contain the same definitions or not, leaving it for you to see what happened there.

Usually, this type of issue happens if you accidentally paste the same definition more than once or if you forget to rename some of the terms.

Unused defined terms

Make sure you use all of the terms that you defined earlier in the contract. We will let you know if there's a defined term that is not mentioned anywhere else in the agreement.

Definitions not capitalized

A term should be written with a capital letter when it is being defined. If we see a defined term not capitalized in the definition section, we will let you know.

Defined terms capitalized inconsistently

A term's capitalization is different from capitalization in the definition. If we see a defined term in text written with a small letter, while it is capitalized in the definition section, we will flag it as an issue.
