Reputable contractors stand behind their work

There is a bit of time before hurricane season hits this area again. One thing that homeowners can do now is to find a contractor they trust so that if there is a big storm, they are prepared. All too often, Florida residents are taken advantage of by contractors who just see weather damage as a way to make money.

What gives way to wills and trust legal battles?

One of the many responsibilities of the executor of an estate is to take a decedent's many assets and to divide them up between their heirs. What you may not realize, though, is that it's this splitting up of money and property that often leads to contested wills and trust cases.

Agreeing on property boundaries with your neighbor

Property boundaries can seem insignificant when you first move into a property, but when you begin to start considering value maximization or when you are planning on selling the property, the importance of these issues will be highlighted. If you believe that your neighbor is encroaching on your land, you must address this directly and with a good understanding of the law.

Picking a great commercial property: Key tips

When starting a new business, the survival odds for your company depend on a lot of factors: the quality of your goods or services, the demand for what you sell, the ability of the potential buyers to make a purchase at the price point, the amount of competition you face and much more.

How trustees can help avoid facing lawsuits

When people are asked by a friend or loved one to administer a trust after they die, they generally don't consider the possibility that they could end up in court with family members (even their own), business associates of the deceased person, charities or other beneficiaries who don't believe the trust is being properly handled.

Breach of contract insurance can benefit both parties

Contract law is an area that is misunderstood by many people. One thing that is often misunderstood is how the wording in a contract can impact the outcome of a case when the agreement is breached. It is imperative that anyone who is entering into a contract understands the depth of how this can affect the way the matter is handled.

Can a charity really sue you or your estate over a pledge?

It's not uncommon for individuals who are moved by a charitable organization's efforts to want to pledge their support to aid them in funding their future outreach. This is why many people set up charitable trusts or sign contracts promising to make a future contribution to a charity. Many of these nonprofit organizations will request that a donor places any oral pledges in writing. When charities don't get what's promised to them, they often file a lawsuit.

Why do companies use non-compete agreements?

Non-compete agreements are fairly common, and many employees are asked to sign them when they take a job. "Asked" is perhaps putting it lightly. The employer tells them that they have to sign the agreement if they actually want to get the job.

When can a business owner break a commercial lease?

If you're leasing a space in a commercial property, like an office building or shopping center, both you and your landlord are typically required to adhere to the terms of the lease. So, are there any circumstances in which you can leave the space before your lease is up?

What options do you have if your home inspector misses something?

Many prospective homeowners who solicit the services of a home inspector do so with the expectation that they'll uncover any problems with the home's structure or systems, concerns that can be quite costly to address if they're discovered long after a sale has been completed. They're only human though. They sometimes miss things. There are many different legal avenues available to you if your inspector fails to notice something resulting in you following through with a purchase that you may otherwise not have.
