Q. Hello, I am interesting in leasing a suite and then renting out the rooms to licensed stylist or lash artists
A: I have a client that has done this as a franchisee. You have to find a location and negotiate a master lease with the landlord with the landlord understanding that you will be subdividing and subleasing the premises to various subtenants. You need to check that the zoning will allow the intended uses. You will be responsible for the rent to the landlord paid from the rent that suntenants pay to you.
Q. Can a non-compete keep me from doing anything HVAC related with anyone for a year in Florida?
A: The covenant not to compete will probably be enforceable as it appears reasonable in time, scope, duration and protects the legitimate interest of the owner.
Q. Dissolving Florida LLC answer "A description of occurrence that resulted in the limited liability company's dissolution"
A: If the members have decided to dissolve the LLC, you should have a resolution contained in a Consent of Members in Luie of a Special Meeting signed by all members. You can then check the appropriate box.
