Contracts and Leases 8-27-14

Understanding the provisions of contracts, including leases, is one of the major responsibilities of the small business owner.  What is a contract, verbal or written?  What terms protect the parties in the contract?  When is a contract valid or not valid?  What provisions should be in a property lease?  These are all important issues in the every day operation of a business.

This workshop provides details on these essential topics:

  • Negotiating Contracts and Leases
  • Oral and Written Contracts
  • Offers and Acceptance

You'll learn important information to help you avoid some of the most common small business mistakes!
