House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin struck an informal agreement early this month on a clean continuing resolution essentially agreeing to keep a stalemate over another phase of COVID-19 relief out of the negotiations in order to keep government open. A failure by Congress to pass the stopgap spending bill by the end of the month would lead to a shutdown on Oct. 1, just weeks before the election. Rather than passing a spending bill this week, however, lawmakers are likely to punt the deadline one week further by voting on a one-week extension of government funding. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.,… Read the rest
Your, or your landlords, right to end a tenancy agreement and your right to stay and be protected from eviction will depend on the type of tenancy you have. Even if you dont have a verbal agreement, but live in a property provided by your landlord and pay rent to them, which is accepted, the law will acknowledge that a tenancy between you two exist. A tenancy can be an AST if all of the following apply: A tenancy agreement can normally only be changed if both you and your landlord agree. If you both agree, the change should be recorded in writing, either by drawing up a new written document setting out the terms of the tenancy or by amending the existing written tenancy agreement.… Read the rest
The use of an inter-party indemnity is a balancing act: Many high-risk activities, like skydiving or heli-skiing, require individuals to sign an indemnity agreement before they can participate. This protects the business or company from liability if there is an accident. In strict terms, the statement to hold harmless means to exonerate another from liability. Sarah E. Swank writes that “[a] hold harmless provision means that an organization is not liable for certain damages under an agreement. This clause effectively bars the party responsible for indemnification from bringing suit against the party being indemnified.” Clarifying the Confusing World of Indemnification, Hold Harmless and Defense Clauses, January 2013 (example indemnity clause in service agreement).… Read the rest
If one partner has children from another relationship, a prenup can ensure that separate premarital property is shared with these children. Even when a will exists, prenuptial agreements can clarify and reinforce expectations to avoid costly legal battles that ultimately eat away at the estate. However, the advantages of a prenup tend to outweigh the disadvantages. If you or your spouse incurred significant debt before marriage, a prenuptial agreement can protect each of you from taking on responsibility for that debt. You dont feel the prenup is fair. You should never be coerced into signing a prenup. If you feel that a prenuptial agreement is heavily in favor of one spouse over the other, do not sign.… Read the rest
The idea of a Philippine-US FTA has been mooted since the termination of the Philippines preferential trade status in the US as part of the transitional arrangements from colonial rule to full independence. Those discussions never gained traction, partly because the Philippines has taken a cautious approach to a free trade deal and has never negotiated one outside the ASEAN framework. It was content to utilize the Generalized System of Preferences (US GSP) which provided duty free treatment for about 5,000 tariff lines with minimum reciprocal concessions (here). Whether youre taking out a mortgage, a personal loan or Car Finance, the creditor is legally required to provide a credit agreement and it must be signed by both parties.… Read the rest

In other words, both parties are prepared to use force to achieve immediate objectives, neither desires all-out war and the two share the implicit goal of stabilising the Gaza Strip under Hamass rule albeit in Israels but not Hamass case, without allowing the Islamist movement to showcase an ability to govern. This reality has informed the nature of the indirect ceasefire negotiations that have taken place against the backdrop of the Great Return marches. From Israels perspective, the key challenge is to balance Gazas humanitarian needs against the risk of empowering Hamas and thereby indirectly weakening the PA in the West Bank, with its ailing and increasingly isolated president, Mahmoud Abbas.[fn]PLO… Read the rest

Particular attention should be paid to any “cross-default” clauses, affecting when default under one agreement triggers a default under another. These should not apply to any on demand facilities provided by the lender, and should contain appropriately defined threshold amounts of default. The existence of a syndicate will not affect certain other provisions in a facilities agreement. For example, there will also be a definition of ‘Majority Lenders’ whose consent will be required for certain actions. It is normal for this definition to be two thirds of the syndicate banks by reference to the amount of their stake in the loan.… Read the rest

To define Agreement? Many drafters define the term this Agreement (or, as appropriate, this Deed, this Amendment, etc.) in the introductory clause. Defining the term is, as such, not necessary: the mere article this in this agreement (used anywhere in the document) obviates the need for a defined term, because what other agreement would be referred to? Note: Under common law, agreement is a necessary element of a valid contract http://goldeneventsintl.com/agreement-signifies/.

The agreement must outline geographic practice areas for the physician and the NP and methods of treatment within an NPs scope of practice.… Read the rest
