Terms of Service
This page will outline the terms and conditions for working with Rick Davis Legal P.C. and/or placing orders on this website. These terms are subject to change at any time without notice. Please contact us with any questions prior to submitting an order as placing an order constitutes your acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Legal and Other Questions
Unlimited scheduled phone calls refer to the ability to schedule a ten-minute phone call with an attorney up to one time per business day to answer any legal, business, or real estate-related questions being faced by the member. The calls are intended to provide answers to basic questions and do not include the review of documents, drafting documents, legal research, or anything other than a quick conversation and answer to the question being posed. Moreover, questions must relate to the member and not the business or operations of non-members.
Each call is a limited scope representation and while we will keep the information shared during this consultation confidential, there shall be no attorney-client relationship formed following the consultation unless we mutually agree to move forward with further services and you have purchased additional services through this website.
As this is a limited-scope representation for the purpose of answering general legal questions, you may not use the firm’s name as your lawyer or direct any third party to contact the firm unless otherwise agreed in writing. Moreover, we can not answer additional questions submitted via email, chat, or phone calls following the consultation and you will need to schedule an additional limited-scope consultation for additional questions.
Moreover, please be advised that all advice provide during the call is based upon the information shared and additional information not available to the attorney may change the advice provided.
Registered Agent Services
Resident agent service includes us serving as the resident agent for an unlimited number of Kansas and/or Missouri entities. Resident agent services for entities formed in other states are available through a third-party at the cost of $149 per year. Membership does not include the costs charged by the state for changing or modifying a registered agent, which shall be billed directly to the member and due upon receipt.
If membership is halted at any time, the member is responsible for changing the registered agent service within ten (10) days at the member’s sole cost and expense. Additionally, RDRE reserve the right to withdraw as the registered agent for any member who terminates its membership and/or to hold any documents received pending the payment of the membership dues owed through the date of termination to the date the document was received.
Members are responsible for keeping RDRE informed of the member’s current contact information at all times. Member understands that if RDRE receives legal pleadings on the member’s behalf and is unable to reach the member, default judgment may be entered by the court for failure to respond. It is further acknowledged that registered agent services include the acceptance of legal pleadings on the member’s behalf but do not include any additional legal services, such as reviewing, advising on, or responding to legal documents., and that said services can be provided for an additional fee.
State Registration Compliance Monitoring
Rick Davis Legal, P.C. will monitor the state records to ensure the timely filing of all annual reports and other documents with the state. Any fees charged by the state for said filings shall be billed to the member directly and due upon receipt.
Additionally, if the member provides Rick Davis Legal, P.C. with a copy of its organizational documents, Rick Davis Legal, P.C. will also monitor to ensure compliance with the annual meeting and notice requirements for the member entity.
Unlimited Review of Form Contracts
Review of RDRE and KCRAR contract forms reviews include the review of populated pre-printed forms provided either by this law firm or the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors. We will review the documents for inconsistencies or items that are not in conformity with industry standards or your stated goals for the contract. The Guarded Pockets™ does not include drafting additional language for the contract, preparing addendums, or other legal work beyond the review and verbal discussion of the contract forms.
Expediated closing services are provided to Guarded Pockets™ members and are limited only to closings involving cash sales or private financing when we are drafting the financing documents. If we are required to wait on a third party to draft financing documents, expediated closings can only be provided assuming that the loan documents are provided to us at the time of the order.
Expediated closing services are limited to Johnson, Wyandotte, and Douglas County, Kansas and Jackson, Clay, Cass, and Platte Counties in Missouri.
Expediated closing services may not be available when we are obtaining payoffs from third parties; however, we agree to begin the process of obtaining the payoff the same day and to close the transaction as soon as this information is received from the third party.
Additional Legal Services
Membership in the Guarded Pockets™ program provides access to a lawyer, answers to basic questions, and other services as set forth above. It is not, however, an unlimited legal plan and many legal services will require the payment of additional fees.
All of RDRE’s legal services are billed on a flat-rate that is payable either entirely up-front or on a monthly basis. So as to avoid any confusion or surprise bills, no additional legal services shall be performed until the fees are paid or the monthly payment plan is established and the first payment is made.
Any legal service being provided will include that service only and not additional services, which may require the payment of additional fees.
Unusual Use/Additional Charges
If any member’s use of the Guarded Pockets™ vastly exceeds that of other members, RDRE may require additional fees to be paid by said user; however, this is rare and will not apply to most members. If additional legal fees are required, the member will receive notification at least thirty (30) days prior to any increase in fees.
All prices, terms, and conditions of this program are subject to change upon thirty (30) days written notice to the members.
