Hotel bookings down during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach

If you're looking to construct a hotel in Daytona Beach, you may want to hear more about the low bookings in October this year. Daytona Beach hosts Biketoberfest each year, but hoteliers have reported lower-than-typical bookings in 2019.

Part of the reason, it's believed, is that the impact of Hurricane Dorian is still present. Annually, tens of thousands of motorcyclists come to the signature event, but fewer than normal are expected to arrive in 2019.

Should you work with a business law attorney?

Business law is a general term that encompasses all laws that determine how to both form and run a business. Business laws set up rules that all businesses have to follow.

When you're ready to set up a business, you'll need to understand business law. This is why many people starting businesses work with attorneys to do so. An attorney can get you started off right so that you have an appropriate understanding of the kind of business you're running, the structure of the business, the paperwork you have to file, how you'll pay your federal taxes and other important information.

Addressing change orders construction contract negotiations

Whether you recently started a construction company or already own an established business, you are probably already aware of the fact that property owners may want to make changes in the middle of the project. When this happens, you need to react quickly and efficiently in order to minimize the potential for litigation, time delays and budget concerns that accompany these requests.

Change orders are a fact of life in the construction business, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't plan for them in order to protect yourself and your business. Addressing them in your construction contracts could prevent you from experiencing the adverse effects that often come with these requests.

Get an attorney to help with real estate closings

There are many reasons why you might want to work with a real estate attorney when you are buying a home. One of the best reasons is because of their skill level when it comes to closing.

Your attorney is skilled in real estate and can help make the entire process seem clearer to you. They are also familiar with contracts and paperwork related to buying a home, so that they can help you know what you're signing and reading without leaving you feeling confused.

Don't fall victim to these contract myths

When you sign a contract, you have to be cautious. If you fall victim to any myths about contracts, you could find yourself struggling in the future.

For example, one common myth is that it's simple to draft a contract. While it's not the most difficult thing to do, there are laws that have to be followed. Drafting the right contract is done with skill that is honed through experience and training -- the kind of training your attorney will have. Here are a few other myths that you shouldn't fall for, either.

Here's why to consider working with a business law attorney

When you decided to set up a business, you took the time to educate yourself on local laws and regulations, but everything is still complex. You want to make sure you do everything right, so that you protect yourself against liability and register your business correctly.

One thing that has been suggested to you is to work with a business law attorney. Business law attorneys focus on issues that affect businesses, like intellectual property rights, business transactions and taxation.

Get a good contract when you're buying a home

In real estate, one thing is sure: You have to make sure that your contract is legal. When a contract is legally binding, it protects you. You retain many rights and can stop others from taking advantage of you or your finances.

For example, if you're interested in buying a house, you might enter into a contract that states that you will buy the house upon a positive inspection. If there are major problems, you would retain the ability to walk away from the purchase or to ask the seller to fix what's wrong.

The right commercial lease for your Florida small business

Finding commercial property that makes sense for your Florida small business is not an easy task. Commercial space not only has to fit the operational needs of your company, it also had to fit your budget. Even in your haste to move forward once you find the ideal property, it is in your interests to make sure that your commercial lease is fair and reasonable.

Commercial leases are negotiable. This means that you probably have the ability to work with the landlord to make sure the terms of the contract suit the needs of your business and do not expose you to unnecessary risk. Before you sign a contract, it's prudent to carefully review it and make sure that you are not agreeing to something that could cause problems down the road.

Rising costs challenge construction teams in Florida

Florida is no stranger to natural disasters, but did you realize how much a disaster can affect your construction project and costs? Even if the project itself is going to plan, the cost of bringing construction tools and materials to your site may increase.

This can be a big problem for people with contracts that dictate a final price for a project. It can mean losing out on your profits or even going into the red to complete the project as assigned.

Why work with an attorney when you need a contract?

Contracts are important. They're there to protect you and the other party from breaches. Of course, your concern should be to protect yourself and prevent a breach of contract whenever possible. It's essential that you meet your end of the agreement, and it's also wise to add in penalties against the other party in the case that they don't hold up their end of the contract.

Many people are under the impression that a contract is simple to draw up, and while some might be straightforward, there's still a case to be made for having your attorney create the contract for you.
