I want to give a benefit to people who used to be associated

i want to give a benefit to people who used to be associated with my brand but i don't want to tie it to ownership, or employer/employee relationship. i want it to be a voluntary contribution for their benefit which will be honored which will be honored so long as the brand is doing well. in return, i want a quit of any claim they may think they have from prior owners (should not carry to me) also contingent on that they do no harm to the brand or the customers (this is the real reason for this agreement - anyone one of them can harm the customer base)is there a document that can be outfitted to include such items? maybe a do not compete agreement, or other?

I'm buying a condo that has been used as a sales office. Developer says he is demolishing the interior back to studs, and replacing all mechcanical, electrical, plumbing systems with new, to sell the condo as "new". He says he won't remove and install new windows, which are 7 years old. I say he has to, as I am buying a "new" condo and I'm responsible for the windows. Who wins?

Legalgems. so Im discussing the cashing of the check,

Hi again legalgems. so Im discussing for now the cashing of the check, written to my daughter under the Nevada uniform transfer act to minors. and me as "custiodian for". And if cashing the check will cause problems for me to contest the part of the probate that only pertains to me, not my daughter.So, take a look Below....at what I got from a Nevada's attorneys office and their simplified versions explaining how to understand this Uniform minors act in Nevada:As this interpretation tells me there shouldn't be ANY repercussions cashing daughters check.??And doesn't the "Tort" thing pertain to my case also.... working in my favor? (thanks and see below)WHAT IS THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THE UNIFORM TRANSFERS TO MINORS ACT?Instead of a trust, guardianship or conservatorship, the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act contemplates a custodianship of the property that would otherwise transfer directly to the minor. The custodian would be either an adult or an appropriate institution, which would serve in that capacity until the minor reaches the age specified in the statute. Age of maturity ranges from 18 to 25 depending on the state's version of the statute. The custodial relationship is created by executing a simple document.Nevada's age of maturity is 18.WHAT IS THE EXTENT OF LIABILITY OF THE CUSTODIAN?Pursuant to the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, the liability of custodians has been limited as the type of property which can be transferred has been expanded. The custodian has specific statutory authority to deal with the property on behalf of the minor. The custodian will not be held personally liable for contractual obligations where it is clear that the custodian signed only in the capacity of “custodian”. Nor will the custodian be held personally liable on TORT claims arising from the ownership or control of custodial property unless the custodian is found to be personally at fault.Created 8/04/2015If you have questions regarding the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, or any other estate planning needs, please contact Anderson, Dorn & Rader, Ltd., either online or by calling us at(###) ###-####Here's the link:understanding the nevada uniform transfers to minors act
