writing out a contract

I am thinking about renting out the craps table that I made (http://www.operationsports.com/forum...ht=craps+table).

I would of course want to make it so they are responsible for any damage or if they go off and steal the thing. I would really only rent it out to people in my home town or near by. So I wouldn't be to worried about the people I'm giving it to for a night.

How would I go about doing all of this?

I would talk to a property lawyer about getting something drawn up. Usually first meeting is free. Probably cost you a couple of bucks.

May want to also check out legal zoom.

Re: writing out a contract

Yup, I agree with the Legal Zoom suggestion...


A cost free option would be to bullet point the particulars of the situation in an email that the person you're dealing with responds to by simply stating "I agree to the terms of this agreement" (or thereabouts)...

Believe it or not, since the email has to cross state lines to get to you (even if the other person is sitting next to you when you email and they reply) it's a strong as a sealed envelope date stamped by the USPS...

The thing is, ANY legal agreement is only as solid as your ability to enforce it...

Since this would end up in small claims court (worst case scenario), I'd keep it simple and cheap...

If you "lawyer up" to do this, you're in for a couple hundo, and if it goes to small claims you're on the hook for time, expenses and possibly representation...

Small claims would ALMOST CERTAINLY (there's never 100%'s with anything "legal") honor the email trial as hard evidence...

Good luck!

Re: writing out a contract

You basically need to charge a deposit that is enough to replace it. Drawing a contract will only cover you for keeping part or all of the deposit if someone damages it. If you don't get the money up front, you will have to take them to small claims court and most likely waste more time/money than you will get.
