I absolutely love helping my clients buy their first home, sell their starters, upgrade to their next big adventure, or transition to their next phase of life. The confidence my clients have going into a transaction and through the whole process is one of the most rewarding aspects of practicing this type of law. My very first class in law school was property law, and let me tell you, this was like nothing I’d ever experienced. I remember vividly cracking open that big red book and staring at the pages not having the faintest idea what I was actually reading. Despite those initial scary moments, I grew to love property law. My obsession with real estate law was solidified when I was working in Virginia at a law firm outside DC. I ran the settlement (escrow) department and learned the ins and outs of transactions and the unique needs of the parties. My husband and I bought our first home in Virginia in 2012 and despite being an attorney, there was so much we didn’t know, especially when it came to our HOA and our mortgage. Our real estate agent was a wonderful resource for finding our home and negotiating some of the key terms, but there was something missing in the process. I’ve spent the last 10 years helping those who were in the same situation we were in better understand the process.

Terms and Conditions

Texas

Asked on Nov 29, 2023

Are terms and conditions legally binding?

I recently started a business and I am in the process of creating a website for it. As part of the website, I am creating a Terms and Conditions page. I want to make sure that the Terms and Conditions are legally binding so that if I ever need to take legal action against a customer, I am protected. I have read some articles about Terms and Conditions, but I would like to get a professional opinion on the matter.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

Yes, terms and conditions on a business website can generally be enforceable against consumers. The enforceability of terms and conditions on a business website against consumers is not straightforward and depends on various factors, including the type of agreement used, the presentation of these terms, the consumer's acknowledgment of these terms, and the specific provisions within these terms. However, the enforceability primarily hinges on how these terms are presented and whether the consumers were given reasonable notice of these terms. There are three types of electronic form agreements typically used by websites to incorporate terms and conditions: "click-wrap", "browse-wrap", and "sign-in-wrap" agreements. "Click-wrap" agreements necessitate the user's express assent to the terms and conditions by clicking a button that reads "I Agree" or some other method of explicit agreement. In these cases, the consumer is presumed to be aware of the additional terms and conditions and consciously chooses to proceed with the transaction. "Browse-wrap" agreements include terms and conditions either posted on the website, a hyperlink, or are accessible on the screen, but do not require the user's express assent. The validity of these agreements depends on whether a website user has actual or constructive knowledge of a site's terms and conditions prior to using the site. "Sign-in-wrap" agreements involve notifying users of the existence of the website's terms and conditions and advising them that they are agreeing to the terms when registering an account or signing in. Courts usually enforce these agreements when the notice of the terms was "reasonably conspicuous." This can include situations where a hyperlink to the terms and conditions is present on nearly every webpage of the company's website, or when the webpage from which the user indicates their assent contains a conspicuous hyperlink to the agreement. However, there are exceptions to the enforceability of these terms and conditions and much depends on the type of business you are and the specific terms and conditions that you impose on consumers through your website.

Operating Agreement

Pennsylvania

Asked on Jun 7, 2022

Can you explain and help with the process of dividing the LLC into 99% and 1%?

I would like to make my dad a 1% owner in the company In order to have an LLC in PA under the age of 18. Me being 17, I would like to create an LLC so that I can function and be fully legal and transparent to the state of PA. I need more specific 1 on 1 guidance on how I can fully make this possible. Any information helps, thank you.

Ryan W.

Answered Jun 14, 2022

Hi. This is a difficult question in terms of application and practicality. There is nothing in the LLC laws that prevent a minor from owning an LLC in Pennsylvania. However, the minor may not have capacity to sign a binding agreement such as the documents necessary to create an LLC. More than likely an option to consider may be to have a parent form the LLC and grant the minor an ownership interest through an operating agreement. However, each situation may be different and I urge you to contact legal counsel to discuss your specific circumstances.

Liquor License

Maine

Asked on May 13, 2022

Need help for a liquor license for a lounge/club

Need a liquor license asap in portland, or around. Maine.

Craig M.

Answered May 17, 2022

It is a multi-step process to obtain a liquor license in Portland, Maine. You must obtain approval from the City, after first obtaining approval from the Code Enforcement Officer, Public Services, Fire, Health Services, Treasury, and Police. You may also need to create an LLC or other business entity, register with the Secretary of State, obtain an EIN, among other things. I can assist at my normal hourly rate of $200, and would require a $5000 legal advance, payable through Contracts Counsel to assist. The fee Contracts Counsel charges is nonrefundable, otherwise, itemized invoicing will be periodically provided, and any unearned fees will be reimbursed to the client at the end of the project.
