leases and such

excellent. everything is all ready. we signed the lease the other day. the landlord was going to sign it 2 days ago. the he decides to up the rent by $14 a month instead of signing it. that's a grand total of 14*12*3 = $504 for 3 years rent. fucking cocksmoker. so we're heading BACK to the real estate agent's office for 4pm to resign everything. our agent is all stressed about it. it's actually pretty funny to listen to him be all panicky on the phone, as if we actually had a choice and would walk away now that the rent is $14 a month higher.

all for a lousy $500 over 3 years.

at least we get the keys today!

and we just placed the first record order. tons o' dnb, breaks and house on it's way. the hip hop order will be placed in the next day or two (fatbeats just got atmosphere - the overcast! ep back in stock. god's bathroom floor, the best track they EVER produced is on it. i'm getting one for me, one for the store).

game on.

The other day, in Contracts, we learned the following principle: if one party makes an offer and the other party indicates acceptance by some irrevocable act, then there is a binding contract.

Note that I am not a lawyer and this shouldn't be construed as legal advice. But I thought you might find that interesting.

But what counts as an irrevocable act?

signed the lease might not be the right thing to say in this case. we signed the "offer to lease" and the landlord hadn't yet. so, we weren't in anything that would be considered a binding or irrevocable contract. it's still fucking annoying that he'd do this for $500 over 3 years. just seems stupid to me.
