The intention of the participants in the joint venture is generally to obtain funds from third countries that cover as much as possible the costs of the project. Where possible, the requested facility should be limited in order to limit the parties` exposure to the joint venture`s assets. In the rest of this article, we will discuss a number of specific issues raised in the documentation process of what we would rather call the conventional joint venture, in which the parties opted for a joint venture without legal personality. Evaluation methods, in particular the appointment of specific experts, are important with regard to acquisition rights in the joint enterprise agreement. If the right to purchase the interest of another party for the market value (or an amount less or less than that number), that value is normally determined either by the agreement of the parties or, where such an agreement cannot be concluded, determined by a third party. The two most common legal variants of a joint venture are the joint venture «Incorporated» and the unincorporated joint venture. In the case of residential or commercial construction for the sale of units or the rental of offices, third-party funders generally strive to obtain a sufficient level of preconditions as a precondition for a possible reduction and conduct thorough diligence on the terms of out-of-budget sales contracts, leases and construction contracts. In a future case, third parties will generally try to ensure that as much of the construction risk as possible is passed on to the contractor in order to minimize their exposure in the event of forced execution. Joint ventures are commercially and legally complex. While a successful joint venture will focus on common compatibility, trust and vision and determination, almost all joint ventures will face difficult times and it is essential to protect against downside risks.

When a landowner works with a developer and the developer receives a royalty for its development skills, the joint venture can effectively be documented as a simple «development agreement.» In this case, the agreement defines the developer`s obligations to acquire the development in exchange for his fees. Peter Connolly tells this story to illustrate this point: I made an adventure between six hotel companies that are doing a start-up business on the Internet. The process was similar to cat hats. Every day, I should remind the company parties why it was good for them to overcome their natural distrust of each other, to make the agreement, then bring them together to advance a few topics, then separate them before remembering how much they really hated each other.
