Cancellation Agreement

New York

Asked on Nov 16, 2021

How can I cancel the signed building repair contract in new york?

I have signed a contract to do repair work of home and it is in the last phase. The contract includes the work to the done and the amount allocated and it does not contain any clauses or date of completion for each phase. Currently, the contractor is not coming for work and not responding to emails and phone calls. 90% of work is done for paid work. No money is paid for pending work. I want to hire a new contractor. Is sending a letter indicating the contract is terminated due to non progress and pending work for paid amount is enough ?

Jane C.

Answered Nov 26, 2021

I suggest you send the contractor an email and mail a written letter to him stating that you will not be completing the job with him.

Liability Waiver

Texas

Asked on Nov 27, 2023

Is a liability waiver binding on heirs?

I recently inherited a business from a family member and I am looking to create a liability waiver for the business. I want to make sure that the waiver is binding on the heirs of the business in the event that the business is passed down. I want to make sure that any potential liabilities are not passed on to future generations of the family.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

A liability waiver can indeed be binding on heirs if the language of the waiver expressly includes heirs or assigns. However, the binding nature of a waiver on heirs could be affected by several factors. Administrative regulations such as 1 TAC § 373.209 and statutes like V.T.C.A., Civil Practice & Remedies Code § 71.021 and V.T.C.A., Special Districts Code § 8502.020 stipulate conditions under which heirs can assert claims, which could potentially affect the binding nature of a waiver on heirs. Finally, the enforceability of such waivers can be influenced by whether the instrument is recorded or not, as per V.T.C.A., Property Code § 13.001. In summary, while a liability waiver can be binding on heirs, the enforceability of such waivers can be influenced by various factors, including the specific language of the waiver, the termination of the contract, administrative regulations or statutes, and whether the instrument is recorded or not. I recommend having a discussion with an attorney and have them draft the language to achieve your goal.

Data Transfer Agreement

New York

Asked on Dec 27, 2022

New companies databases is possible?

We're a US-based company with clients around the country. We help new, small and medium businesses to grow as well. Although, we do it through marketing and sales strategies. I was wondering if an attorney is able to sell databases of companies that have recently been created in the US. What we want to do is to help these companies to grow (to be on the map, so to speak) with our strategies. I can provide more details if required. Thanks in advance

Adjckwc B.

Answered Jan 6, 2023

Business formation is public record in most states in the US. Delaware, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming are exceptions. If you are looking for data on newly formed companies you can obtain the same from the Secretary of State. There are also many companies who offer data lists for sale. If you need a data transfer agreement we can assist with that as well.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.

I got 5 bids within 24h of posting my project. I choose the person who provided the most detailed and relevant intro letter, highlighting their experience relevant to my project. I am very satisfied with the outcome and quality of the two agreements that were produced, they actually far exceed my expectations.
