How do I write letter to terminate an agreement for conflict of interest?
Elaborate please. Do you know what type of contract it was or what the contract involved? Or even, better tell me how you made the agreement because the agreement itself may not have been worthy of being 'a contract', rather a mutual agreement.Are you under the employ of this person/party? If not, this next section might not be of any use.I can't claim to know about every aspect of contracts because I mainly focus on employment, loan agreements and copyright/licensing contracts. Basically stuff that the self-employed business woman will know so I may be able to answer but I do need specifics.I CAN tell you though, that if you agreed to work for someone you MUST read the contract to see if you are allowed to terminate your contract. Some companies DO have clauses that can affect whether you can terminate you contract and might include reparations or even lawsuits if you. Most contracts will allow you to just notify the employer, however, in some industries it will be different. Especially in industries where money and progress will be lost when you terminate. Specify, and I might be able to tell you and also, READ the WHOLE contract in DETAIL. Very important.
I want to test my product by giving out a handful of samples, but I haven’t patented my idea yet. If I have my testers sign an agreement promising not to steal my idea, am I protected?
Try presenting your samples to Mindfull Products. They help people with consumer product ideas and bring them to market. All you have to do is fill out a submission form and provide any material you have about your product. If you have samples, that will certainly give you an advantage. Their team of experts will privately evaluate your product and see if it has any market viability. They’ll search for competing products and even patents that you may not know of. If everything checks out, and they see potential in your product, they’ll offer to bring your product to market for you. If not, they’ll provide a comprehensive review of their findings and let you know why they passed on your product. So not only will they privately evaluate your idea but they’ll also bring it to market for you.
How can my roommate give me a 30-day notice to move out if she isn't the landlord and there isn't a rental agreement from the owner of the house that we live in?
If you were both on the lease of the apartment then your roommate cannot do that. If your roommate is the leaseholder and then took you on as a roommate then she may ask you to leave But even that would be difficult once you have established residency. If there is no lease at all then your roommate has no more power than you do. So once again you don’t have a right to ask you to leave. The only way around this would be if one party was to get a restraining order from the court. Then the opposite party would have to leave otherwise they would be in violation of that restraining order. Which would result in jail.

I made the mistake of renting a room in a friend's apartment in Vancouver without signing a tenancy agreement. He kicked me out and refuses to return my damage deposit. How can I recover it?
I’m going to disagree with another poster on this. If you were sharing a space and your friend was on the tenancy agreement and you were not, you are SOL. Your accommodation falls under shared accommodation, which is not regulated under the provincial residential tenancy branch. So you have no protection against sudden eviction or someone keeping your damage deposit because shared accommodation falls outside the regulations of the residency tenancy branch.The following is lifted from a warning to tenants on the Residential Tenancy Branch website:“Is the agreement with the owner of the property (or the landlord) or is it just an agreement with a roommate (if so, the Residential Tenancy Act does not apply)?”To see the page, click on the following link and scroll down…https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/housing-tenancy/residential-tenancies/starting-a-tenancy?I wish I had better news for you but I do not. :-(
How much damage to earth will the US cause by pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement?
Not a single bit! The Paris Agreement was a non-binding agreement that, had we decided to uphold our end of, would have had us sending billions of dollars to China and other countries without them having to implement a single reduction in emissions for thirteen years! As usual this was a one sided affair that would have cost us $280 billion dollars, 40,000 jobs and put higher prices on gasoline and electricity for every single American.As for your second sentence, your bias is showing and you're assuming we will have damage to repair. There is not a single dynamic model that shows that is the case.Walking away was the smartest thing we could possibly have done. If a better deal comes along we can always revisit it.
If a tenant pulls out of a new tenancy due to a lack of sufficient broadband speed, does the landlord have to refund the advance rent paid or can he withold a pro rata amount according to how long the property was held for him?
Your local area will have different laws than we do in Orange County, California. The best I can do, is tell you what I would do.As a landlord, I do not provide internet service and I do not know what the broadband speed is and if I did, I would not know if it were sufficient for all prospective tenants. If someone asked about it or said they needed a higher broadband than average, I would give them the local internet and cable utility options and encourage them to do their own research before signing the lease.If the tenant moved in and was disappointed with the broadband service and there were no other good options, I would help them by getting a new tenant to replace them. They would be responsible to pay the rent until I was able to do so.On the other hand, If I told the tenant the broadband was fast and it was clearly inadequate, I would let them move out on a date that worked for them. I would give back the prorated rent and give them all of the deposit, after they had moved out and only make deductions from the deposit if something was damaged.
How long does a landlord have to give you to move out of the property you’re renting by Virginia law if you have a small child?
The default notice requirement is 30 days, but your rental agreement or lease may change this. Having a small child makes no difference as far as the law is concerned.
