We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
- My weekly Sunday before-church "cardio" workout: 10 min elliptical raising resistance every 60 seconds. 10 minutes Stairmaster, raising speed every 60 seconds, final minute slow. 45 minutes treadmill, rotating 2 min slow walk, 2 min high incline fast walk (10-12% incline), 2 min slow walk, 2 min 4 mph jog, 2 min slow walk, 2 min 7 mph run. Rinse and repeat.
- Watch that renewable energy talk we posted yesterday. I mostly agree with the guy, but I am not worried about "climate". Not one bit. I am a conservationist, not a climate wacko. Their priorities are screwed up.
- With snow cover mostly gone (for the moment, at least) a good chance for outdoor clean-up. Also, try to repair fence the damn fallen tree crushed in an ice storm a couple of weeks ago. A good day for real work, which is what we try to stay in shape for. I'll keep an eye out for our local breeding Bald Eagles overhead. Love seeing them hunting my rabbits and, I hope, the neighbors' cats.
Finally, to make today complete, Van Morrison with The Chieftains. Cry if you must. Sheesh, I am not even Irish but there is so much soulful beauty in this world - The world is so cold, don't care nothing for your soul...:
It's always a fine day for a Guinness.
Legal question for the learned audience: An LLC closes down with a trail of bad debts. Does not go bankruptcy. Physical objects of some value remain on the property. Who can claim remaining assets? If you are the holder of a bad debt, do you have to get a judgement in order to try recover from those remaining objects? Or can just turn it over to collections without a judgement? I already know you won't get blood from the stone.
As the landlord, can you claim/keep assets only for the back rent owed, or additional to cover structural damages and what is going to be very costly disposal of nasty debris?
Having vacated the lease, how long would they reasonably have to remove their property if the landlord was willing to allow the removal?
The internet just seems to jump to the position they would go bankrupt (not much help in this question).
Anybody know some answers?
You need to read the lease document first and see what your rights and remedies are. You may be able to establish some sort of receivership or put property into storage until rights are determined, but it depends on the lease and the creditors' rights laws of your state. Sounds like you don't have a security deposit to cover these damages. Also normally a lease to an LLC has a personal guaranty of the principal, but not here? Also sounds like you need an attorney knowledgeable in these areas to advise you.
