    The whole system needs replaced due to age. I have maintained filters and repairs on the unit to try and keep it running but $10,000.00 on something that is attached to the building is alot of money.

    The terms of the lease will determine who is responsible for it.

    Glenn’s Answer

    Technically you can't combine a trade name (DBA) and an LLC. Any assets used under the DBA belong to you personally. So, you can just contribute those assets per your operating agreement. You may some tax issues to deal with, so talk to your tax adviser.

  • My landlord changed the locks on my business without filing an eviction. What are my rights?

    My landlord changed the locks on my business without filing an eviction. What are my rights? He refuses to return the keys.

    Glenn’s Answer

    Most commercial leases allow a landlord to evict without going through the eviction process with the courts upon the breach of the tenant. If this is the case, your rights and the landlord's obligations will be in the lease. If not, then the landlord should have filed the eviction with the courts.

    Glenn’s Answer

    It is unlikely that forming anything in Delaware makes sense for you as it rarely does for a small business unless there are significant investors. But either way get a good business attorney to help you.

    If you are evicting for a breach of the lease agreement, no minimum notice is required, although I generally recommend at least three days.

    We would like to eliminate 2 partners out of 8 in LLC, what are the measurements we have to take into consideration? out of 8 partners, how many people majority require to execute operations?

    Assuming you do not have an operating agreement, you generally cannot remove a member of an LLC. There are some fairly rare exceptions, but I would need to know more to determine whether they apply.

  • Partnership sale

    In a small partnership business if a partner offers to sell his share to another partner through email, how long does this offer is valid? Is email is considered as written offer?

    Glenn’s Answer

    Unless a time period is set forth in the offer, it continues until either accepted, rescinded or countered.

    Yes, an e-mail can be considered a writing, but it depends on the facts.
