Capitalised Terms

When you are reading a contract or other legal document, you may come across words that are capitalised. These are known as capitalised terms.

Capitalised terms usually have a special meaning in the context of the document they appear in. For example, in a lease agreement, the term “Landlord” might be capitalised. This means that, in that particular document, the word “Landlord” refers to a specific person or organisation, and has a special meaning.

If you’re not sure what a capitalised term means, it’s always best to ask the person who gave you the document, or another expert.
