Business law cases and answers

I was hired as an independent contractor, Cleaning airline offices. No contract has been signed other than terms of

Payment on invoices. Repeatedly, I have been paid and they’ve refused to pay late fees. My payment contact has repeatedly lied about payment being “in the email” so I’ve frozen service until payment is received . Can they fire me for this and do I have rights to fight with that?

You will be owed for work already performed even in the event the contract is terminated. In the event you wish to carry on to work with this particular company on those provisions, youwill need to decide.

Do I have to pay FTB fees?

Hello, I was wondering if someone can help me with this. A corporation started in 2014 and since then have accumulated fees to the Franchise Tax Board when I didn’t know better. I used to not do anything with the company, and I owe approximately about 4k in back fees. I recognize the corporation owes that cash and it is going to keep going up yearly. The corporation is currently suspended due to back fees. What should I do? I really can’t afford to pay. What can the authorities do to me if I only do pay? Can they take my personal stuff? If one day I decide to open a business, will this change my business later on? What can happen to a person who does pay, and what are things I can’t do personally if I simply let the suspended corporation is built up on by the taxes?
A: I suggest you consult with a local attorney privately and give him or her all the facts and trades and get a certain advice and plan of action with respect to your personal culpability or lack thereof. Normally, if a corporation complied with the state law and is created properly, is considered a separate legal entity and its responsibility must not create personal liability for its stockholders. The advice presented herein is for general purposes only. It isn’t intended to, and might not be construed as legal, tax or accounting advice. Neither is it meant for solicitation purposes. For specific advice, please consult a lawyer that is appropriate in person. Good luck. Zaher Fallahi, Business and Tax Attorney, CPA.

Damages on commercial property. Severe damage to my building from my neighbor’s trees and landscaping.

The commercial property owner neighboring the earth raising was lifted by my commercial property behind my building to provide landscaping. A tree and shrubs were planted there and the root systems egressed into the lower wall of our building undermining the building stucco and pushed the wall stud framing off the floor plate. Extensive structural damage to my building including water damage. Who is liable for repairs?
A: It sounds like your neighbor would be responsible. There are loads of questions that are unanswered, and this may actually be more of a tort law problem than a real estate one.Have you ever consulted an engineer or architect about the cause of the structural damage? If it was either the plants or the earth work themselves, it sounds like your neighbor is responsible, but it will be important to know and have evidence regarding the causation.Shoot photos, get statements from engineers or architects regarding the damage along with the reason for the damage, and get a couple of approximations for the price of repair. Then go see legal counsel or two. Good luck to you personally.
