The stipulation can be entirely handwritten but some lawyers use forms that they have had printed up with terms that they want the stipulation to include. These stipulations often have terms that are bad for tenants. During the negotiation, you can cross out any terms that you do not agree to. Or, you can use the blank lined sheets that the court provides and write out the entire agreement. You have the right to negotiate every word in the stipulation. Everything you agree to should be included. Anything that was said verbally in court but not written in the stipulation cannot be enforced.
