  • Protecting my Business !HELP!?

    I am starting a small business by myself just a simple baby sitting service. To make myself look more professional i have created a mission statement and created a logo etc etc However to cover my back when on a job i have come up with terms and conditions of which the parents must agree on before i provide care for their childern. I have put this all on paper and i will get parents to sign this before i care for their childern, i have mentioned things like even though it is my duty of care to look after their childerns health, safety and welfare it is up to them to provide me with a low risk enviroment in which i can do my job, if their child does suffer injury i cannot be held responsible for this as therefore the enviroment was not risk free. As long as i mention this and get them to sign terms and conditions does this cover me, basically my terms and conditions state that in the event of any injury i done everything, including themselves, to prevent it but it still happened and therefore it is not my fault. Can anyone help? Are is it the case that since i am providing such a simple service do i even need to bother doing this all!!!

  • Need real estate advice. Calling all agents, brokers, and attorneys.?

    Here goes. I bought a house 50-50 with my cousin with zero down. Recently she got into a car accident and doesn't work. She gets some money from insurance but SHE said she can't afford her half of the mortgage and wanted to refinance in my name and my fiances name. We got the loan and all the paperwork is complete. She hesitated BIG time signing the quit claim from the title company. She wants to get PAID! So we bought for 290K and the house appraised for 312K. Payoff was 292K. The quit claim fees are 2500 bucks for her to get off title. The closing costs were 7k. Once again she wants MONEY! Since we didn't actually "sell" the house she doesn't think she's entitled to have to pay closing costs because I got the house. I don't think this is fair. I don't want the house but the market here is too slow and everything sells for about 10% under appraisal. Selling isn't really an option. She eventually signed the quit claim and I wrote up a little letter stating she has to pay (taken out of her 10K "equity")half of closing, half of the home appraisal, and her half of the quit claim. I offered her about 500 bucks more than the actual numbers shown - I offered 4k, the numbers showed about 3500. My questions is can she take legal action against me to get more money than I'm offering. She signed my little letter with the amount and my 12 month intention to pay. Not a legal document but I can't afford legal fees. What can she do? I don't trust her one bit. Once again, all paperwork is submitted and the loan should fund on Wednesday. Thanks in advance guys.
