What are a merger's benefits?

Your business has done very well for itself, and you're in a position where you can continue to grow it or opt to merge with another corporation. A merger occurs when you agree to sell your company or merge it with another larger corporation. You might do this to eliminate the risk of confusion by consumers or to sell off your business to go on to do other things yourself.

In any case, a merger does not destroy your business. It's a helpful way to boost the value of your company, to encourage shareholders and to extend the reach of your company. Normally, you'll remain with your business following the merger, but in some instances, you may allow yourself to be "bought out" and leave the company completely.

Know your rights when dealing with a neighborly nuisance

If you've just moved into a new home and find that your neighbors are less than desirable, you might think that there is nothing you can do. The truth is that there could be something you can do to address the problem, especially if your neighbor is violating laws or local ordinances.

One important law to know is the law of nuisance. There are two kinds of lawsuits for nuisances. These include private and public nuisance lawsuits. With public nuisances, you claim that the neighbor's actions affect the safety, welfare or health of the public. Private nuisances result in a loss of enjoyment of your property.

Factors to consider when negotiating a commercial lease

Florida business owners know how difficult it can be to find commercial property that will work for their company. Factors to consider include the location of the property, rent prices and more. Once you find the right place, it is then important to negotiate the right terms for your lease.

The terms of most commercial leases are negotiable, which means that you can likely work with the landlord to secure a fair contract that does not expose you to unnecessary risk and the potential for complications. Before you sign on the dotted line, it is beneficial to carefully consider the terms of the lease and negotiate where necessary. Doing this can save you time, money and stress in the future.

What to disclose to buyers when selling your home

If you have made the decision to sell your Florida home, there are certain things you need to know before moving forward. Selling a home involves much more than just putting a sign in the yard and finding a buyer. As the seller, you would be wise to protect your interests by knowing what you have to do and what you have to tell the buyer about your home.

The seller must tell a prospective buyer certain things about his or her house. Failure to do this can lead to complications down the down, and it may even interfere with the closing. Before you move ahead, you will find it beneficial to learn about required disclosures and what they mean for you.

Navigating the maze of zoning designations

The goal of property zoning is to organize land usage in a way that's efficient and livable. For example, commercial businesses typically benefit from being close to one another, as it can bring in more traffic. Similarly, homeowners prefer to live in zones where factories cannot be built, to avoid unpleasant noises and sounds.
