    Please forgive me if there is something on here already about this, but I searched the forums and couldn't find anything. I also couldn't figure out what category it would go under, which is why I just chose general:)

    So we just received the first draft of our contract... and I was wondering if any of you had any advice about things you think I should look for, beware of, etc in the contract?? I've read through it and have already found a couple of errors (they had the year wrong on the deposit dates, little stuff like that which is clearly a typo but we still want edited). But I thought I'd check to see if there is anything that people found in their contracts or that was missing from their contracts that they'd advise people to be aware of.

    Also, I am very worried about the deposit situation. It lists a first deposit (due within 5 days of the contract), then lists a 2nd and 3rd deposit, which is 50% and 25%, respectively, of the cost for ALL our rooms in the room block. Does this mean that we pay for the rooms and guests pay us?? Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks in advance:)

      I'm assuming you're talking about your contract w/ the resort??

      Basically everything they promised you verbally - make sure it's down in writing! I made sure mundane things like the TAX RATE was specified. And oddly enough, the tax rate in Mexico went up but our contract specifies that our room rates wont change regardless of changes in tax so... I think now is the time to be super picky and make sure even the most mundane details are spelled out. You really can't be too picky! Better to be annoyingly precise than leave yourself open to loopholes that could cost you big $$$!
