Hello my name is Bettie and I’m a legal eagle.
Before I autograph any legal docs, I read it over very carefully, specifically for facts and figures. If there is anything I am not 100% sure about or happy with I make a note of it and follow up with the appropriate person. Once I have an answer to my question or the doc amended to reflect my concern, I am ready to autograph!
I used this method most recently for my lease this week. I’m sure I was one of the few to ever question the lease. But, I’m sure my neighbors will appreciate that I noticed the 80% carpet rule to diminish noise. I hope they read that part of the lease too!
I’ve learned it’s best to be in the know! Take your time with the legal docs, ladies!
