How to Negotiate an Apartment Lease
Watch more All about Apartment Rentals videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/363-How-to-Negotiate-an-Apartment-Lease Remember, a lease is an agreement, not an unconditional surrender. Don't sign on that dotted line until you're satisfied with what you're getting. Step 1: Check online for tenant rights Check online for the tenant rights in your city and state. Know exactly what a landlord can and can’t include in a lease. Step 2: Research markets Research the housing and rental markets in the immediate area. Ask around to find out what other tenants and neighbors are paying, and if they have any special deals with the landlord. If they do, you should too. Tip A building’s super is a gold mine of information. Ask them what the previous tenant was paying and if the apartment has any hidden problems – like bad plumbing, noisy neighbors, mysterious odors, etc. And don’t forget to tip them for helping you out – you may be living there soon. Step 3: Ask for copy of lease Ask the landlord for a copy of the lease before agreeing to move in and thoroughly review it. Make note of any stipulations that are NOT in your favor. Step 4: Let landlord know issues Now that you’re intimate with all the details – and possible drawbacks – of the apartment, inform the landlord that you really want to move in, but there are a few 'issues' you’d like to 'iron out' first. Landlords hate 'issues.' Tip Make sure you have a backup plan. Line up another possible apartment (or two) and be prepared to walk away if it comes to that. Do not let yourself be bullied into an unfavorable agreement. Step 5: Make counteroffer If and when the landlord is ready to talk, you should immediately – and without explanation – make a counteroffer on the amount of rent you’ll pay. A 5% reduction is a good starting point. Step 6: List reasons you should pay less Weather the landlord’s tirade, then calmly list all the reasons you should be paying less: the average neighborhood rents are lower than what he’s asking, the building has a bug problem, the nearest bus stop is a mile away, etc. Tip Always be calm, polite and professional, and if you’ve got any charm, turn it on. Make sure the landlord understands you’re negotiating in good faith and it’s not personal – you’re just looking out for #1 (that’s you). Landlords love 'looking out for #1.' Step 7: Offer lower reduction If the landlord won’t budge off the amount of rent, offer a lower reduction, say 3 percent, as a compromise. If they still won’t budge, focus on another area – like getting certain utilities or services included in the rent, or reducing the security deposit. Tip If you have the skills, time, and inclination, offer to perform some basic maintenance services in return for a reduction in rent. Step 8: Get settlements in writing Always get any negotiated settlements in writing – once you do, shake hands with your new business partner, and sign away. Did You Know? Members of the military who receive orders to relocate may break an apartment lease without penalty.

What is CONTRACT MANAGEMENT? What does CONTRACT MANAGEMENT mean? CONTRACT MANAGEMENT definition - CONTRACT MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Contract management or contract administration is the management of contracts made with customers, vendors, partners, or employees. The personnel involved in contract administration required to negotiate, support and manage effective contracts are often expensive to train and retain. Contract management includes negotiating the terms and conditions in contracts and ensuring compliance with the terms and conditions, as well as documenting and agreeing on any changes or amendments that may arise during its implementation or execution. It can be summarized as the process of systematically and efficiently managing contract creation, execution, and analysis for the purpose of maximizing financial and operational performance and minimizing risk. Common commercial contracts include employment letters, sales invoices, purchase orders, and utility contracts. Complex contracts are often necessary for construction projects, goods or services that are highly regulated, goods or services with detailed technical specifications, intellectual property (IP) agreements, outsourcing and international trade. Most larger contracts require the effective use of contract management software to aid administration among multiple parties. A study has found that for "42% of enterprises...the top driver for improvements in the management of contracts is the pressure to better assess and mitigate risks" and additionally,"nearly 65% of enterprises report that contract lifecycle management (CLM) has improved exposure to financial and legal risk." During the post-award phase, it is important to ensure that contract conditions and terms are met, but it is also critical to take a closer look for items such as unrecorded liabilities, under-reported revenue or overpayments. If these items are overlooked, margin may be negatively impacted. A contract compliance audit will often commence with an opportunity review to identify the highest risk areas. Having a dedicated contract compliance (and/or governance) program in place has been shown to result in a typical recovery of 2-4% and sometimes as high as 20%. Current thinking about contract management in complex relationships is shifting from a compliance “management” to a “governance” perspective, with the focus on creating a governance structure in which the parties have a vested interest in managing what are often highly complex contractual arrangements in a more collaborative, aligned, ?exible, and credible way. In 1979, Nobel laureate Oliver Williamson wrote that the governance structure is the “framework within which the integrity of a transaction is decided.” He further added that “because contracts are varied and complex, governance structures vary with the nature of the transaction.” (See also relational contract). Eriksson and Westerberg (2011); Li, Arditi, and Wang (2012); Chen and Manley (2014), and Cardenas, Voordijk, and Dewulf (2017) have hypothesized, developed and extensively tested conceptual models in which relevant project governance instruments and factors were identified and related to the performance of construction projects. A collaborative governance framework has four components: A relationship management structure (how the parties work together to make both day to day operational decisions as well as strategic decisions) A joint performance and transformation management process designed to track the overall performance of the partnership An exit management plan as a controlling mechanism to encourage the organizations to make ethical, proactive changes for the mutual benefit of all the parties. Compliance to special concerns and regulations, which include the more traditional components of contract compliance.

Telecom and Utility Services Bundling - Good or Bad?
Bundling is a term that usually seems to be a good thing with telecom and utility services – “lots of things all provided under one big package at a better price” or assumed better price. When you start looking at the services many different ways, you start trying to analyze why wouldn't it be a better solution to have all of these unique capabilities of services through one price, one carrier, one contract, one service provider. While that sounds good on the surface and it is - you get a great rate for a lot of services that you are using. However, the “gotchas” are the deeper ones. Often times these are promo prices that are included for a small amount of time. Those prices increase over time or during the contract period. You see commercials that raise the attention and awareness to those specific facts especially when you talk about cable companies and telecom providers that are offering bundled long distance services or promo rates for the first year. Then the next year comes into play and your rate goes up by two times especially in your business service contracts. So while bundling can be good, it can also be very bad because it can drop your rate initially but increase your rate over time based on your contractual agreement. The other thing is there are services in bundled packages that are unnecessary or what we call “upsold” or “oversold” such as unlimited long distance packages. Sounds great – PROTECTION! “I don't have to be concerned that I'm going over my limit or over my minutes or my rate will increase”. Yet people don't really look at the actual amount of utilization they have so in turn they buy way more than they need in a bundle package effect to decrease any possibilities that they may be in an overage or overpay situation. Yet they may never come close to the threshold they pay on a monthly basis. This is particularly important for you to understand prior to signing any agreement that bundles all these services together. Lastly, but not least many of the service offerings in these bundled package include additional items that you are not aware of and are unnecessary. Because these bundled packages have - one price, one offer, one promo they make you feel like you're getting much more than you need when often times there are charges inside that are not necessary that are costing you year-over-year. So the advice with every person who engages in a contractual negotiation for their business is to really look at: • What does this bundle offering contain? • What are the unique individual components? • How is it taxed? • How is it priced? • What are the benefits? • What are the deterrents? • Do I really need all of it or do I only need a portion of it and I just think it may be a better deal? At the end the day it is your decision to make or you can contact us at Limitless Technology ~ Cost Reduction Specialist to help guide you through the process. www.limitlesstechnology.com http://www.limitlesstechnology.com/telecom-video-resources/

Today I've got quick video on investing in billboards. *Note: Mention - "Click "show more" in the description below to follow along. How to Invest in Billboards Profit Centers - Invest in land itself where zoning for billboards is approved - Ground Leases - Rent land, build a sign, rent the sign - sign rent exceeds land rent resulting in cashflow - Sub-lease an existing billboard - no advertisement - improve the sign - rent it out - Find a location - preferably high traffic - Billboardsforsale.org - Contact Local Zoning Department - permits - Work with a Licensed Real Estate Agent - contact owners and make offers - Due Diligence - Call around for rent rates, identify vacancy rates, traffic, etc... - Negotiate and Close the Deal - Hire Billboard Contractor - Advertise The Billboard - Cashflow or flip for big profits - Expenses - financing, property tax, building the structure, insurance, utilities, occasional repairs Pros to Billboard Investing - Billboards have become one of the strongest media options for advertisers - Billboards have not really been affected by the internet like newspaper, or television have - The amount of traffic and readership passing billboards increases every day - Technology and design have made installation easier - creates happier advertisers and more products and services that advertisers can market. - Tax benefits - depreciation - Double Income - Advertising Per Side - Doesn't take very much money to get started, or even to build - Long term commitments - contracts usually several years - sometimes with big companies like McDonalds - No usual hassles of tenants - Cashflow potential - Note**:Grandfathered - existing billboards cannot be removed for digital technology or moved to new sites. Disadvantages of Billboard Investing - Vacancy Overhead - Property tax, insurance, utilities, etc.. - Advertising companies own tons of billboards - not for sale - only lease - Quantity is limited for now - Hard to find long term contracts in certain locations - Vandalism - Zoning Restrictions Cost - Bulletin (Large Billboard): Range of $1,500 - $30,000 per ad per 4 week period - 30 Sheet Poster (Medium Billboard): Range of $750 - $2,000 per ad per 4 week period - 8 Sheet Poster / Junior Poster (Small Billboard): Range of $300 - $750 per ad per 4 week period - Digital Bulletin (Large Digital): Range of $3,500 - $25,000 per ad per 4 week period for an ~8 second spot in a loop of ~64 seconds Investing in Billboards is a form of creative real estate. It doesn't take that much money to get started, and the income potential is significant. Like all investments, its important to do your research, perform all necessary due diligence, and consult with your attorney where concerns arise. As long as you follow these steps, you will be in a good position to make a safe and secure investment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gXMM5p2SB8 "REIClubRealEstateInvesting"

Power Purchase Agreements for Grid-Aware Renewable Energy Procurement
Power purchase agreements (PPAs) are a key mechanism that utilities use to procure variable renewable energy from independent power producers. A PPA is a long-term (20-25 year) contract that codifies all aspects of the electricity sale, including the price of electricity and the associated legal obligations of both parties. This webinar focuses on PPA provisions that can enable wind and solar technologies to enhance grid stability and contribute to power system flexibility. Discussed are key considerations, including ancillary services, advanced telemetry, and automatic generation control. The discussion is followed with a presentation by Xcel Energy, a vertically integrated electricity utility in the United States and the largest wind buyer in the country, to discuss Xcel Energy’s Model PPA for wind power systems.

What makes us Unique? | Nationwide Utilities Energy Brokers
What makes Nationwide Utilities unique? Bespoke - There is nothing standard about our customers, the only commonality is the requirement for energy to be supplied on good terms. There is no task too big or small for our team to handle, while our objective is to make the energy procurement and management process as simple as possible for the client to manage and make decisions about the most favourable option. As many organisations will have an energy procurement partner or team, our services can be used in part or as well a whole to deliver the package of support services required. Skilled personnel - Our company has a hands-on approach to management and our directors are frequently involved in procurement negotiations and problem-resolution directly with suppliers. We share market knowledge with our customers in the same way we do with each other. Our team have a diverse and multidisciplinary range of skills that allows all of us to take accountability for the service we deliver to our customers. Technology - We host and develop the technical delivery of all our solutions, enabling us to deal with a range of complex situations that can arise in energy markets between customers and suppliers. All our voice communications are recorded over VOIP networks, our email records date back 10 years, all our inbound faxes are received via email in PDF format, important paper documents and contracts are scanned in-house, and our computer systems run virus free Apple systems. Thinking outside the box - 'No' is not an option. As suppliers can use this word quite often, we no longer ask questions that generate 'yes or no' responses. The challenge for us is to avoid the problem arising in the first place, or to resolve early signs of difficulties arising, so that the problem is tacked before it even exists. This requires a pro-active and forward thinking approach to energy management, alongside continuous development of service delivery options for our customers. Some of our most valued customers are low consumers of energy, in both relative and absolute terms. We encourage and promote innovation on both the contractual and technological sides, and this inspires us to become ever better at what we do as a business, and the specialisms on which we focus. Negotiation - We do not operate a standalone quotation service for customers. We do not seek to win business purely on energy unit costs. A customer or energy consultant can obtain prices directly from suppliers however this is not the same as negotiating the most favourable terms to meet customer needs, and specific requirements, in any sense of the word. Prices rise and fall and in certain market conditions some suppliers will appear to be offering better prices than others, but without the full picture, it is not possible in a volatile market to know the implications of these price offerings, where there are so many pitfalls and issues to check before entering into a contact. Knowing which suppliers to approach, when and how are vital to obtaining 'below the curve' prices, that are below market norms. BSI 16001 - We are proud to be the UK's first energy broker to obtain the 16001 Energy Management Systems Certification. Through this process we have learned how to deliver real energy management systems and processes delivering tangible measurable savings. These certifications form part of our service delivery to customers and combined with the latest energy monitoring systems, will ensure customers can meet the energy reduction targets that may be set internally, or imposed from external Carbon Reduction Commitment obligations. http://www.nationwideutilities.com

3 Reasons Why You Should Not Pay Your Debt
Paying off an old collection or charge off will increase your credit score. This is a huge MYTH! Effects of Paying When you pay an older collection account or charge-off account, your credit score most likely will suffer. Think twice before paying off an old collection or charge off. By paying your debt, it renews the date of last activity. The collection company or creditors can now report the account for another 7 years. Everyone knows debt collections are bad for your credit score. Any past due accounts including debt collections have negative effects. These accounts report on your credit report for up to7 years. As accounts age, they have less and less impact on your credit score. Many consumers believe by paying off collections or charge-off accounts, that it will raise their credit scores. It certainly seems logical; however it is far from the truth. If you are concerned about your credit score, paying off debts prior to obtaining any other type of loan or mortgage can greatly hurt your credit score. Ultimately, if it is an older account when paid off (or payments are made on the account), by doing so can be devastating to ones credit score. The recent activity of any derogatory item has a big impact on how it effects your overall credit score. Is the Debt Still Valid? After a certain period of inactivity on an account, a debt becomes time-barred and debt collectors can no longer sue you for it. This period is known as "the statute of limitations on debt" and varies by state. If the statute of limitations has passed, it is illegal for a debt collector or creditor to sue you. You need to be careful in communicating with a debt collector because the debt statute of limitations can easily be restarted by acknowledging that you owe the debt, making a payment, entering a payment plan, making an agreement to pay or making a charge on the account. After 7 Years Collection and charge-off accounts should only remain on your credit report for 7 years. It is important to check your credit reports as the credit bureaus often continue reporting these derogatory accounts over the 7 year limit. If you have any questions regarding collection accounts on your credit reports, call our office today for your complimentary credit consultation. We look forward to hearing from you. 480-502-5554 LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The advice provided is for informational purposes only. It is not to be construed as Legal Counsel or Legal Advice.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited Plan for 2025.
Hindustan Aeronautics Limited Plan for 2025. State-run aerospace behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has finalised a major plan to manufacture nearly 1,000 military helicopters and over a hundred planes, in tune with government's focus on speeding up defence indigenisation. State-run aerospace behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has finalised a major plan to manufacture nearly 1,000 military helicopters and over a hundred planes, in tune with government’s focus on speeding up defence indigenisation. HAL Chairman and Managing Director T Suvarna Raju said the company has also ramped up its infrastructure to deliver 123 Tejas Light Combat Aircraft to the India Air Force with an annual delivery of 16 jets from 2018-19 onwards. In the next five years, the HAL will also carry out major upgrade of almost the entire fighter fleet of IAF including Su-30MKI, Jaguars and Mirage jets, making them more lethal, he said. “Next five years will be really vibrant time for HAL. We are upgrading almost every major platform including Sukhois, Jaguars, Mirage and Hawks. “We are going to build around 1,000 helicopters including Kamov 226, LCH (Light Combat Helicopter) ALH (Advanced Light Helicopter) in the next 10 years,” Raju told PTI in an interview. The HAL and Russian defence firms have finalised a Joint Venture agreement for production of light weight multi-role ‘Kamov 226T’ helicopters in India which will replace the aging fleet of Cheetah and Chetak choppers. The inter-government agreement for the deal was signed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Russia in December, 2015. On manufacture of Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas, the HAL chief said its production will be doubled from current eight aircraft per year to 16 from 2018-19. Tejas, the smallest and lightest of its class, was inducted into the IAF in July last year. The HAL has an order from IAF to supply 40 Tejas. The government has also approved the procurement of 83 Tejas Mk-1A taking the total number of the aircraft to be manufactured by HAL to 123. Raju said besides enhancing infrastructure for redouble manufacturing of Tejas, HAL has also outsourced manufacture of some major components including wings and fuselage of the jet to private industry which will further speed up rate of production. Calling Sukhoi upgrade a major programme, he said the fleet will be equipped with missiles, avionics and sensors. Both India and Russia have been in negotiation for upgrade of the Su-30MKI to a near fifth-generation level. Earlier this month, India and Russia signed two key agreements for long-term maintenance and technical support for the Su-30MKI fleet. India is one of the largest importers of arms and military platforms globally. The government has been focusing significantly on promoting defence indigenisation by taking a slew of reform initiatives including liberalising FDI in defence sector. Reflecting government’s focus in the area, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley earlier this month had said India was not happy with the label of world’s largest importer of weapons system and had asked the industry to take advantage of government’s policy to promote defence production.

Philippines has plan turn to China, Russia after scrapping Canada helicopter deal
MANILA - The Philippines may turn to non-Western defense manufacturers, including China and Russia, to acquire 16 helicopters after it had to scrap a $233 million deal with Canada, its defense minister said on Monday. Francois-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s trade minister, has ordered a review of the contract over concerns about Manila’s intended use for the helicopters. “We are looking at Korea, Russia, China, Turkey and other countries for the medium-lift helicopters in lieu of the Bell 412EPI,” Philippines’ Defence Minister Delfin Lorenzana told reporters. “We’re back to square one in the procurement process.” It took about two years to negotiate the deal. The contract for the 16 combat utility helicopters was a repeat order, he said, after Canada delivered eight Bell 412 helicopters worth 4.8 billion pesos ($92.8 million) in 2014.

Global climate governance in a changing world
Global climate governance in a changing world Are new coalitions reshaping climate negotiations? Thursday 14 September 2017, 15.00-17.00 DIIS ∙ Danish Institute for International Studies See programme and direct links to the presentations below... Background In November, government representatives will meet in Bonn, Germany to continue negotiations on how to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. The negotiations take place against the backdrop of the US government’s spring 2017 decision to withdraw from the accord, drawing attention to the role of many other state and non-state actors in sustaining its momentum. In this changing context, this seminar asks: • What old and new coalitions are driving climate negotiations forward? • How is the traditional divide between North and South developing? • What are the key topics on the agenda in the negotiations, and what are Denmark’s particular interests? • Where can Denmark look for climate allies within and beyond the EU? International negotiations, to address the causes and consequences of climate change, have long provided an arena of contention between industrialized countries with a large historical responsibility for greenhouse gas emissions on one side, and developing countries that have contributed less to climate change but are more vulnerable to its negative effects on the other. In recent years, however, the diversity of national experiences, interests, and political initiatives related to climate change has become increasingly clear. New coalitions and actor groupings are contributing to reshaping climate negotiations. This shift presents an opportunity for navigating away from political stalemates, but also creates a more complicated picture of where the key areas for agreement and disagreement among negotiating parties lie. This seminar will explore the changing actor dynamics in climate negotiations in the lead up to the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP 23). The seminar will outline emerging constellations of actor interests and discuss the core issues for debate as parties work on finalizing the implementation plan for the Paris Agreement. It will also discuss Denmark’s priorities in this year’s negotiations and the prospects for promoting Danish positions on climate questions. Speakers Lau Øfjord Blaxekjær, Assistant Professor and Programme Director, University of the Faroe Islands Anette Ejersted, Chief Negotiator, International Office, Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities, and Climate Mikkel Funder, Senior Researcher, DIIS Erik Lundsgaarde, Senior Researcher, DIIS Programme 0:00-8:52 Welcome and introduction, Erik Lundsgaarde 9:09-45:31 New narratives and practices of global climate governance, Lau Øfjord Blaxekjær 47:49-1:04:00 Danish priorities and outlook toward COP 23, Anette Ejersted 1:06:04-1:15:25 Reflections from discussant, Mikkel Funder 1:15:37-1:45:39 Audience questions and open discussion, moderator: Mikkel Funder Read more at www.diis.dk

#IamPlus1 featuring Samuel L. Jackson
MLGW and MIFA team up for Plus-1, a utility assistance program for families in crisis. It's for people who are having a hard time making ends meet. Plus-1 is also the 13,000 neighbors who give $1 or more each month to help their neighbors through a crisis. You hold the power to help your neighbors in need by giving to Plus-1. FACT: Plus-1 is not an entitlement program; rather, it is an emergency assistance program for families who have suffered a loss of income. The majority of those clients have faced a medical emergency or a job loss or reduction in hours. FACT: Plus-1 provides a small amount of assistance. The average eligible household receives $150 in assistance, plus negotiation with MLGW to establish a payment plan for the rest. FACT: Plus-1 helps prevent a crisis from getting worse. A utility shut-off is a leading indicator on the trajectory towards homelessness. FACT: Plus-1 works. 80% of clients who receive Plus-1 assistance still have their utilities on six months later. plus1memphis.org mlgw.com/plus1 iamplus1.org mlgw.com mifa.org
