    Was he an employee of the restaurant? Did he have the authority or apparent authority to bind the restaurant? If so, you may be able to pursue the restaurant under an agency theory. Further, you may have a claim against the person that misrepresented their ownership interest for fraud, which is generally not dischargeable in bankruptcy. You should talk to an attorney and have them review the terms of your contract with you for a comprehensive analysis.

    If you fail to collect and pay taxes that you are legally required to pay, not only will you be liable for the amount of the taxes, but you will face additional penalties and interest for failing to pay on time. The taxing agency/body may issue tax warrants and/or liens against you. If this happens, they will have the ability to pursue collection of the unpaid amounts due. Tools that they may use to collect against you include, but are not limited to garnishment of wages, garnishment of bank...

    This simple answer is; yes, you can register multiple trade names when you complete a Master Business License Application. There is a fee of $5.00 for each trade name registered. Although that answers your questions, you should carefully consider the implications of doing business as a sole proprietor. Among other things, you are personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the business. You should at least consider the possibility of forming one or more business entities. Besides...

    It is the subcontractor's burden to initiate a foreclosure action on time, as well as the subcontractor's burden to prove that they provided all required notices and were properly licensed with the State. The problem that you face is; if the subcontractor did in fact comply with all of the requirements, they are entitled to recover their attorney's fees, interest and court costs associated with the foreclosure action. You have to weigh your risks and rewards. Is it worth waiting to see...

    I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but you should meet with an attorney to determine what you rights are and to develop a plan of action. Although the idea of you and your neighbors meeting with an attorney together sounds like a cooperative way to go about it, a conflict of interest exists and the attorney would not be able to represent both of you in a disputed matter. If the conflict of interest were waived by both parties for the purposes of obtaining a legal opinion from the...

    Generally, Social Security benefits are exempt from garnishment. However, other assets, including money from a part-time job are subject to seizure by a judgment creditor. You may wish to segregate Social Security money from other funds or assets. The cost of an attorney will vary depending on numerous factors including their experience, the complexity of the matter, instructions that you provide, how vigorous of a challenge the opposing party presents. Attorney's fees and costs are...

    The type of deed you to be used to convey the property doesn't make a difference on the tax that's going to be paid. Further, if you make a gift valued over a certain threshold the party receiving the gift will owe gift tax on it. You should speak with a estate planning attorney to help you develop a strategy for transferring the property.

    I've updated the practice area of your question. As a preliminary matter, you should know that no one can give you advice that would be used for the purpose of avoiding federal tax penalties. You should speak with an estate planning attorney that can help you develop a plan for how best to handle your estate.

  9. Can I evict a tenant for refusing to move out on an agreed move out date without a signed rental agreement?

    I agree with the previous response. I would add that if the tenant is truly moving out on the 1st of October, it will probably take you just about that long to go through the eviction process. The tenant might move out as soon as the eviction process is initiated. Then again, they might stick it out until you obtain a writ of restitution from the Court and the Sheriff shows up to escort them out. If you don't pursue the action, you have no chance to recover damages that you suffered, i.e....

    An easement can potentially be abandoned or extinguished. If an easement is limited in its scope (i.e. for ingress and egress only), the party that has rights in the easement can't exceed the scope. If it was an easement for ingress and egress only, and the neighbor has other access to the property and has now blocked the easement with the trees and and bushes, they may have defeated the purpose of their easement. It's not as simple as it sounds though. Alternatively, they may be engaging...
