I owned a business which failed. I invested my liquid assets in the business. I have no means to pay the rent. I am being sued for over due rent. What are my options.
First, are you personally liable on the lease? This is important. As for options, You can attempt to work out a reasonable payment plan with the landlord or you can consider filing for bankruptcy, to name two. You would likely benefit from much more specific advice and I urge you to seek out experienced counsel. They may even be able to find a provision of the lease which can get you out of the bind.
