Legal Answers
Q. If my LLC doesn't have an operating agreement and a member decides to leave do they owe the company for any debt?
A: Depends on the debt. Are they personally obligated? Is the business just in debt? Or does it have a positive fair market value? Typically, without an operating agreement, when a member quits the LLC pays fair market under TCA 48-249-505. But there are other considerations as well. Consult counsel for a determination.
Q. What is the law on tn rentals reguarding 2nd late fee then unpaid rent- an the time frame to terminate tenacy..?
A: Depends on what your lease says and whether you are accepting payments with or without reservation. But you can't evict someone without filing a detainer summons and getting an order of possession.
Q. What are the realistic repercussions of ignoring a debtors examination subpoena?
A: The next possible steps are a show cause and then a body attached (arrest warrant). Depends on how aggressive the creditor wants to get.
