The importance of an FDD to franchisees

Many individuals choose to buy into a successful company through the purchase of a franchise. The relationship created through a franchise is a legal one that allows an individual to use a service, trademark or advertising symbol in their business. Fast food chains are commonly franchised and are typically proven successful.

How does the eminent domain law affect homeowners?

For most Americans, our homes are our one true safe haven and a source of pride and joy in our lives. That is why the idea of eminent domain is so difficult for many to swallow. The thought of the government displacing families for the sake of a new highway or sewer line is unfathomable to most. While the law of eminent domain requires that the purchasing entity offers fair market value for properties acquired under it, the offer doesn't represent the time, effort and memories that go into making a house a home. Fortunately, for homeowners there is a way to fight back for proper compensation: an attorney.

El Nino's effect on the market

This year is an El Niño year, and for many Americans that means a winter of above average temperatures and below average snowfall.

Speculation into what this year's El Niño season will bring to Southwest Colorado has real estate agents and resorts owners alike concerned.

People come, businesses come, jobs come and retail is a part of it all. However, for some Arvada, Colorado residents the retail has yet to come, and it's making them nervous.

What is a Real Estate Investment Trust?

A Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT, is first and foremost a company. Their objective is to own and manage real estate that, in some manner, produces income. These money making real estate properties can range in interest from warehouse rental space to apartment buildings. They can also include, shopping malls, hospitals and resorts. Although the idea of a REIT is fairly easy to understand, the creation of one is anything but easy and requires a clear understanding of U.S. tax law and a good attorney.

Do real estate disputes always require court intervention?

Although the darkest hours of the housing crisis may be over, an attorney that focuses on real estate law might caution against assuming that the mortgage industry has been completely reformed.
