A legal contract is an agreement between two parties that creates reciprocal and legally enforceable obligations. Seven essential elements must be present before a contract is mandatory: offer, acceptance, mutual consent (also known as “meeting spirits”), consideration, ability and legality. Contracts are usually signed in writing and to prove that all of these elements are present. Management contracts give the contractor the security of the continuity of his business. This can be illustrated by an example. An executive or employee may quit his job, allowing the company to have a hole in its team for the proper functioning of operations. A contract management company can easily change few employees without undermining the consistency of the business model.  Contract negotiations in hotel management can be a long and complex process. These negotiations should satisfy both the operator and the owner in order to ensure an effective and trusting relationship between the two parties, taking into account the assets.
On the one hand, with a longer-term contract, the operator will require stable cash flow. On the other hand, the owner will primarily seek flexibility from the point of view of exit, visibility of profit and loss of assets and transparency on the structure of royalties, and from this objective, the owner can use a third party that could be more focused on his interests. The main objective of the negotiations is to avoid uncertainty and conflict and to seek clarity and confidence in order to maximize the returns of each party. This is essential to ensure that responsibilities and best practices are respected and that the business is successfully executed. This chapter examines the concepts of risk management and legal responsibility in the tourism and hospitality and restaurant sectors. We will examine theoretical risk concepts and practical risk management applications, examining the applicable areas of legislation in the areas of disattribution, intrusiveness and contracts. Insurance and occupational health are also discussed. Examples are cited for the principles of risk management in tourism and hospitality.

Performance tests allow an owner to terminate the administrative agreement if the operator does not meet the performance criteria agreed after a construction period (test periods start on average in the fourth year). As a general rule, two types of performance tests are used, often in common: it is useful to familiarize yourself with previous judgments to understand the current context of tourism and client risk management and the law.
