Legal Answers
Q. I own a business and did not pay the rent for one month because I had a buyer for the business but the landlord made
A: If you owe the rent you need to pay or be evicted. While your lease will govern, most commercial leases have a provision that counterclaims must be brought in a separate case, like your claim the landlord killed your deal.
Q. Am I personally liable for an EIDL loan of $130k taken out by my S Corp if I close the business?
A: This is actually an evolving area of the law. If you have no guarantee, the answer should be no. But, the SBA has been investigating whether proceeds were properly used. If you took the money for improper purposes, the US Attorney could come after you. But, there are so many of these loans, it is hard to see that happening in every case.
Q. I am being sued by a creditor. I received two summons in the mail. Are they able to serve me a summons in the mail?
A: There is something called "nail and mail" service, which means another copy was supposed to be posted to your door. Thus, the mail will probably mean service was done. You have 35 days to answer, but do not wait until the last second.
