A Heads of Agreement is a non-binding document that defines the basic terms of a preliminary partnership agreement or transaction. Also known as “Heads of Terms” or “Letter of Intent”, a “Heads of Intent” marks the first step towards a fully binding agreement or contract and a directive on the roles and responsibilities of the parties to a potential partnership before binding documents are developed.
