Q. I'm looking for legal advice regarding my LLC, that is not generating any income anymore, and I am about to close it.
A: I would bet you are a guarantor of these debts so the answer is it would impact your credit.
Q. Security deposit. What is the limit for small claims court in west Chester county? Can I sue for triple damages?
A: Limit is $3000. Triple damages are for the deposit not being in a segregated account, which is different than withholding it. But you can add that in.
Q. Security deposit
A: Just sue. You can use the address you have for the defendant. It is small claims under $5000 for New York City, and you do it yourself.
Q. Is it legal in NYC to rent out my home as an event space to host private events - without violating zoning laws?
A: No
Q. Can you get out of stipulation in an irrevocable trust agreement. My grandfather put a stipulation that states i can not
A: It depends on the terms of the trust to which you are referring.
Q. What to do if my ex friend (not on our lease) does not leave in 30 days as she has been informed she should?
A: You are going to have to bring a holdover petition in landlord tenant court to do this the right way.
Q. Can i be sued for a car that a Notice of Discontinuance has already been filed on?
A: You can be sued because you have been sued. Your question is do you have a defense. I do not know what you mean by a Notice of Discontinuance. That term usually applies to a litigation. A release of lien applies to a car. I am not sure what paper you have. Thus, I cannot answer your question.
Q. Can another offer on a home/property be accepted once a purchase offer has been accepted, and documents signed?
A: It depends what are the "signed papers". An offer is not binding. A contract signed by both sides is binding.
Q. i inherited a house in brooklyn ny with my 2 siblings they have had apartments in the house for the past 50 years
A: Only from the time you were on title. What you should do depends on what you want to happen to the house.
