When One Party Drafts a Contract that is Ambiguous to the Other Party

Which of the following is true in cases where only one party drafts the contracts that contain terms that appear vague and ambiguous to the other party?

The court will interpret the terms as they mean in the common language.

Explanation: When there is only one party drafting a contract with ambiguous terms, the only potential route for interpretation is via common language. This process will rely heavily on the legal interpretation of the Judge or Jury. This is commonly referred to as “filling the gaps”, which is a responsibility that often falls on the courts in situations like this.
