9 Questions Answered
- Q. So my husband and I owned our own business and with some events we gave back his money he gave to us and what our compay
- A: Depending upon the circumstances leading up to this, you can send him (or have your lawyer send him) a cease and desist letter.
- Q. I am in the process of starting a commercial cleaning business LLC. Do I need to obtain the business insurance first
- A: You don’t need to obtain your commercial liability insurance before you file your Articles of Organization with the state, but I would strongly recommend obtaining insurance before you begin accepting jobs/customers. I would recommend starting with filing your articles, getting an EIN, obtaining your local business license, register with Dept. of Revenue if you will have employees, and getting your commercial liability insurance as a part of that’s whole process, prior to opening the business up and accepting cleaning jobs.
- Q. We purchased a business from a family member without getting an agreement in writing. What are my options?
- A: Even though you have been making timely payments, it will be difficult to prove that you are almost “paid off” without a signed written agreement showing what the total agreed upon price was. You may also have a Statute of Frauds issue, as Georgia requires all contracts that cannot be completed within one year to be in writing, unless you fit into one of the exceptions. It does help your case that you have a witness willing to corroborate your side of the story, but it still wouldn’t necessarily be a slam dunk if you were to sue for specific performance. In my opinion your best bet would be to hire an attorney to try to and either negotiate a settlement or be willing to initiate a lawsuit for specific performance.
