Legal Answers
Q. Can I limit my liability as cosigner in a multi-tenant lease, with an addendum stating liability limits in dollar value?
A: Yes, if both parties agree you can draft an addendum to provide that you are guaranteeing only a portion of the total rent. As long as both parties sign it, it would be enforceable to limit your liability. *Please be advised that this answer is for information or educational purposes only and is intended to be general information, not specific advise in your situation the response is based only upon the limited information you provided in the question. For detailed advise about your specific situation, I would recommend that you schedule a time to speak with an attorney.*
Q. How easy or hard will it be to break a verbal contract involving the sale of some property
A: Generally, speaking a contract for the sale of real property must be in writing. There are very limited exceptions to this rule and they usually involve when a party has moved into the home and started making payments in accordance with a verbal agreement. I would also caution that it does not require a formal contract for an agreement for the sale of real property to be in writing. If you sent emails memorializing the terms or wrote basic terms down on a napkin, that may be enough to constitute a written agreement. *Please be advised that this answer is for information or educational purposes only and is intended to be general information, not specific advise in your situation the response is based only upon the limited information you provided in the question. For detailed advise about your specific situation, I would recommend that you schedule a time to speak with an attorney.*
Q. How long will it take me to register my new business as an LLC?
A: Registering an LLC only takes a few minutes and can be completed online. With that being said, if you have more than one owner in your business, you will likely want an operating agreement, which will take some time to draft depending on your specific needs. If you are going through an attorney, the other variable is the attorney's schedule, which could effect the timeline.
