Integrated Agreement

A contract that contains within its four corners the entire understanding of the parties and is subject to the PAROL EVIDENCE rule, which seeks to preserve the integrity of written agreements by refusing to allow the parties to modify their contract through the introduction of prior or contemporaneous oral declarations.

An agreement is integrated when the parties adopt the writing or writings as the final and complete expression of the agreement.
