Contract law is a branch of the legal sector that deals with the legal binding and exchange of agreements between group or parties; in effect, a contract. A contract can be many things: verbal, written, even action oriented. If you buy a dress, for example, you’re contracted to pay the amount of the dress to the merchant. Our daily lives are full of contracts and agreements, some, like the dress, which we don’t normally think about.

What contract law does is protect, defend and examine contracts made between people, agencies, groups, organizations, etc. It falls under the civil law system and is considered part of laws surrounding obligations, or ‘law of obligation.’

Much of the time, the sector of contract law is concerned with breaches of contracts and solutions to the problems that accompany these breeches. What most people don’t know is that, contrary to what they may believe, an informal contract (one made orally, even lightly) can still be as binding and legal as a written contract.

Contract lawyers deal with everything from the formalities and details of a contract to its ultimate follow through. A contract lawyer will ideally ensure that the contractual terms of the contract are complete and in no way uncertain.

This is highly important because, if the terms of a contract are determined ‘incomplete’ or ‘uncertain,’ the contract is liable for severance. For example, if an agreement was made between two parties, and one party tried to break the contract, they might be successful if the contract is deemed uncertain or incomplete by a court of law.

In order to obtain damages for breaking (breeching) a contract, a person may bring a suit against the contract-breaker by filing a civil lawsuit usually in a state court. However, it is within their rights to petition a private arbitrator to hear their case as well. This is best practice in the United States; other countries may have similar processes.

Hiring a contract lawyer to help you out with this process is well worth your time, as they can help resolve any disputes you have with a contract and conversely, ensure a contract is solid and legal, without any uncertain terms that could be grounds for severance. is a popular legal directory that helps users locate legal professionals across the country while providing the legal community and litigation support providers with a low cost method to market their services to other professionals and members of the public across the country.

In the past, when couples with young children wanted to go on vacation, they’d often send their kids to grandma and grandpa’s house; this ensured that they got to spend some quality ‘alone time’ together. However, today’s fast-paced world – which often requires both parents to work – calls for family vacations to include the little ones. More and more couples are choosing to take their young children on vacation with them rather than carting them off to grandma and grandpa’s.

However, this means that a lot more planning needs to go into vacations: what sorts of activities can you and your kids enjoy together? Many couples envision themselves either stuck amidst a plethora of squealing children at a carnival, or dealing with their kids’ boredom when visiting attractions more suited to ‘grown-ups.’ Can you and your spouse really feel like you’re on vacation and entertain your kids at the same time? Of course; and rest assured that there are loads of family friendly destinations to choose from. For starters, why not introduce your kids to the splendours of a city tour?

A big city like Los Angeles, for example, has a great deal to offer families with kids. Attractions such as Universal Studios and Knott’s Berry Farm provide perfect daytime leisure activities, such as rides, shows and tours that are guaranteed to keep the little ones entertained. Disneyland is also nearby, and is sure to thrill kids and give parents a chance to relive their memories of favourite Disney movies and characters. Griffith Park is another popular family attraction, encompasing an observatory, a zoo, a miniature train and more amidst a 4,000 acre park. Moreover, the beach is never far off: head to Santa Monica, Malibu, Zuma or Laguna Beach to build a sandcastle, swim or catch some California sun.

If you’d like to incorporate a bit of culture into your vacation, take your kids to Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles, where they can sample some authentic Mexican cuisine and see the Avila Adobe – the oldest house in Los Angeles. And if there’s one museum you should visit with your kids while in Los Angeles it’s the La Brea Tar Pits which houses the largest and most diverse assemblage of extinct Ice Age plants and animals in the world.

New York City is another fantastic place to take your family on holiday; kids will be amazed by the tall skyscrapers and can even climb their way to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Family-friendly attractions in New York City include the New York Hall of Science, the Bronx Zoo and the American Folk Art Museum, which offers self-guided scavenger hunts.

Central Park is another popular attraction, offering 800 acres of fun for the whole family. Favourites for kids include boat rides from Loeb Boathouse and the Central Park Carousel. There’s even storytelling at the Hans Christen Anderson Statue during the warmer summer months.

There are also countless galleries and exhibits in New York which are perfect for children and parents to explore together: the Children’s Museum of the Arts, for example, offers hands-on creative activities to encourage the child’s imagination, while the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, started in 1899, holds all kinds of wonders to delight children – from live pythons and elephant bones to musical instruments with which visitors can play. The New York Aquarium on Coney Island is another popular family attraction, with 10,000 species of marine life to explore.

And while in New York, why not take advantage of the fantastic theatre scene? There are many family friendly musicals to see, such as Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King or Wicked. With such fantastic attractions, you and your family are guaranteed a memorable trip.

When it comes to finding accommodation for your holiday, there are countless options to choose from. Many hotels are specifically suited to families, with large suite-style rooms, and you’ll often find special deals on offer. With such facilities, you can be sure that all your needs – as well as those of your little ones – will be met on your holiday.

In order to make a successful commercial real estate investment you need to know the right questions to ask and the right way to ask them. Since purchasing commercial real estate is a negotiation between the buyer and the seller (and probably their prospective brokers), it is important that you, as the buyer, are prepared. Asking the right questions could help you avoid owning an underperforming asset.

Remember, both parties are trying their best to get what they want, but their goals are diametrically opposed. The seller is trying his or her best to get the highest possible price, while the buyer is trying just as hard to get the property for the least possible amount of money. There’s an old saying in the business: “All sellers are liars, all buyers are thieves.” While I don’t believe in either scenario as a way to do business, those commercial real estate investors who are able to create a win-win transaction will enjoy huge advantages over their more combative competition. And the key to doing that is in your questioning technique.

Finding and creating these win-win deals isn’t easy, but making them happen is the basis of successful real estate investment. In many ways, finding the best deals boils down to knowing which questions to ask and is one of the most important of all real estate “secrets.”

The key is to ask plenty of open ended questions of either the seller or his agent and to not accept a simple “yes” or “no” answer. If you ask an open ended question and get a yes/no answer, your immediate reaction should be to follow up with additional open ended questions! Obviously, if you keep getting yes/no’s to your questions, it may be time to find a more cooperative and serious seller.

Some of the leading questions smart real estate investors use include:

• What can you tell me about this piece of property?
• What makes this particular property a good investment?
• What is it like dealing with the city?
• Tell me about your tenants … neighbors … city, etc.
• What can you do to help me get into this property?
• What financing are you willing to carry?
• What are your neighbors like? Or “how easy are the adjacent property owners to deal with?
• How quickly do you need to close? Why?
• Why are you selling the property … now?
• What is the existing financing? How can it be assumed?
• What are the down payment requirements?

While the straightforward approach and strategy generally works the best, many successful real estate investors have also found success at using the “Columbo Technique.” For those of you too young to remember, Columbo was a dumpy-looking fictional detective who always seemed a couple of cents short of a dollar. However, he had this process where he’d get up to leave after seeming to conclude his suspect interviews and would say something like: “Oh, Mr. Jones, one more thing …” And that question would usually catch the perpetrator off guard. I suggest trying it during your discovery process. It can be very enlightening!

You’ll need to develop your own list of questions as you do more transactions and I suggest even rehearsing them or incorporating them into some form of due diligence checklist. The bottom line is that the better you question, the better your deals will be.

Sinks and Bathtubs – Choices for Modern Bathrooms

Are you thinking of decorating your bathroom? Thinking of adding some personality and pizzazz to the lavatory? You don’t have to spend a fortune to add elegance and ambience. Follow our suggestions and you can put the room back into bathroom

Converting your old bathroom into a blend of style and sophistication doesn’t have to break your budget.

Choosing the right mix of paint color, paint texture and selecting complimenting bathroom fixtures, including bath tub, sinks and commodes. The good news is that in doing all of this, you wont have to break the bank. If you do a bit of shopping, you can find deals, and more often than not, you’ll find a great discount on all three.

The first place you should start off with is your bathroom fixtures. Its not necessary for you to replace your bath tub, toilet or sink, however, special attention should be placed on their overall condition and color. Normally, your bathtub should be the same color as your sink and commode. If its not, it will stick out like a sore thumb. Next, look at the surface of your bathtub and sink. Should you consider reglazing them?

Some terms to keep in mind…

What does Close-Coupled mean?

Close-Coupled is used to describe a type or style of toilet wherein the cistern attaches directly to the pan.

What does W.C. mean?

W.C. stands for ‘water closet’, but is more widely known as a toilet.

What is a Cistern?

A Cistern is the compartment of a toilet that contains the water needed for flushing.

Varieties and styles of bathroom fixtures abound and if you are content with your choices of bathtub and sink, then let them be the basis for your interior-decorating plan. First, determine if there are any striking features of your tub or sink. For example, are they antique, does your tub have claw feet, what color are they, what are they made out of? Answering these questions will give you plenty of starting points to begin your decorating scheme. A good idea is to put all of the answers to the above questions down in a notebook. This may help you brainstorm some decorating ideas and strategies. By using the best features of the fixtures already in your bathroom, you can simply redecorate with items that will accentuate the undying fixtures that are already in place.

Since its the largest single item in your bathroom, let the bathtub help you make your choices. If you have an antique tub, then go with an antique motif and decor.

Lighting is one thing that is often overlooked in most bathroom decorating adventures. If the lights are too bright, they may highlight defects in your walls, and cast the wrong light on things. On the other hand, if you provide inadequate lighting, you’d find it will cast all the wrong shadows. Also, remember that the lighting will be different in your local paint store than it will be in your bathroom, so take samples, and have a good look.

You can add elegance to your bathroom by accenting with the use of glass, marble, brass, gold and crystal. Its important to remember though, that adding brass or gold will increase your budget, so be careful. As an alternative to having to tile the walls around your bathtub, consider either a tub surround, or, simply add a couple of decorative tiles. This will instantly add style, elegance and keep you within your budget.

If you think your bathroom is lacking enough light, consider using mirrors more effectively to reflect the light. This can often be cheaper than installing new lights. Even a chandelier can have the same impact, just be sure you have enough room. Another consideration is adjustable lighting. Then you can dim the lights, fill up the tub, and enjoy a soothing and relaxing bath without the need to light candles.

You should be able to decorate your bathroom without blowing your budget. It all depends on how much homework you do beforehand. Visit stores , look in newspapers and talk to friends who have recently decorated their bathrooms.

A look at the ways to pull yourself out of holiday debt

With the holiday season over, many people now turn their attention towards the problem of paying for their festive spending. With an estimated record £33 billion having been spent over the Christmas period, it can be a good idea to formulate a plan to help pay for your purchases. There are several ways in which sensible planning can help ease the burden of heavy credit card bills dropping through letterboxes.

For example, it can be a good idea to look the interest rates that your credit cards have and look to try to pay off those that have the highest rates. Alternatively, it might be possible to transfer your credit-card balances onto a lower-rate credit card. There are several credit cards on the market that offer excellent interest rates on balance transfers for fixed periods of time, so it can often be beneficial to shop around for the best deals and rates available. When this isn’t possible you may find that loans available from high street banks can beat the rate you are currently paying as banking is a highly competitive market.

However, it’s not usually a good idea to pay off debt with more debt so it may be best to avoid taking out another form of credit in order to pay off your existing debts. In many cases, you might actually end up paying out more money that you would normally. So whatever bills you ran up during the holiday season, make sure you make your payments on time, and if possible, make more than the minimum payment. Late payments can impact on your credit file and create difficulties in obtaining a favourable rate for any future credit, and sometimes can stop you obtaining any credit at all!

Perhaps you received a Christmas bonus in your salary? If so, using the extra money to help pay off some of the outstanding balance is a sensible course of action. The same can be said for any gift money received as using extra money can often help lessen the strain on your finances.

If you find yourself in serious financial difficulties and you are struggling to make repayments, it may help to contact your creditors and explain the situation. Some companies will be happy to accept a lesser payment, rather than receive nothing at all while you get back on a good financial footing. Others may pass your case onto a debt collection agency, where you can often negotiate a lower monthly payment or in some cases a lesser settlement. Or perhaps you could take advantage of some confidential debt consultation; there are several debt consultation and negotiation companies that can help you to manage your debt. But beware; some companies charge a fee for their services.

Many people spend more than they intended to over the holiday period; sometimes without thinking how they will pay back what they owe. However, by formulating a plan to help pay for your festive holiday spending, you can ease the burden of holiday debt considerably.

Most people do not know about the Wage Earner Plan. This federal law was passed in 1938 and it is administered by the same court branch that deals with bankruptcy claims.

Truth is that bankruptcy although tempting should be your last resort to getting out of debt. Filing bankruptcy may clean your credit immediately but the damage stays on your credit file for 10 solid years before it is removed and during this time it will be quite impossible to receive credit for anything because most creditors will not be willing to deal with you. To utilize the Wage Earner Law requires one thing, that you be a wage earner. That’s it. This is unlike bankruptcy because it does not wipe your credit.

The wage earner law only requires that when you file and are called to court, your creditors must appear and prove in a court of law that you owe them money. Most creditors do not appear because they do not have the time to follow up on your debt in person. On average about 40-45% of creditors actually appear and when they do appear and the court rules against you, then you can set up a real payment plan over 2-3 years to pay back the debt. Setting up this payment plan can also help your credit because you have made an attempt to pay back the creditor directly and not deal with a collection agency. Most of the time creditors do not appear in which case you can wipe that debt from your record as soon as you walk out of the court.

Upon filing the Wage Earner Plan you legally stop any collection agency, lawsuits negative judgment etc against you. When you go to court and the judge rules against the creditor for using deceptive tactics to solicit your business, your debt will be wiped out immediately under the Uniform Commercial Code. Most of these guerilla tactics only work if you know the law and can use it against the creditors. Information is power. Learn more about how to clean your credit at .
