"ARS has worked with Goldman & Pease, LLC since 2006. One of our first major problems was a residential claim in Swampscott Massachusetts. There was a large fire in a family’s home and we ran into issues collecting a substantial amount owed to us. They handled a delicate situation magnificently and since then, we have continued to have great success with Goldman & Pease, LLC and have built a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with them. Cameron Pease and Howard Goldman have always made our experience working with them a pleasure. It has been a mutually beneficial relationship for several years now. As the President of ARS it is highly reassuring knowing that we have such a professional firm like Goldman & Pease representing us for our legal needs."

Legal Questions & Answers


A:
To answer your question about whether Massachusetts requires certain contracts to be in writing, the answer is it depends upon the type of contract. The Massachusetts version of the statute of frauds (i.e. M.G.L. c. 259 §1) provides that certain types of contracts must be in writing. For example, a contract for the sale of real estate must be in writing. The subject contract does not appear to be a contract that is required to be in writing unless it was “an agreement that is not to be performed within one year from the making thereof”. As this contract was not in writing, however, your company and the production company may have some real disagreements over what the “terms of the deal” were. You have a couple of option on how to proceed at this point. You could either: (1) defend the case and possibly bring counterclaims (i.e. for the production companies non-performance), (2) you could try to reach a settlement agreement and payment plan over time, or (3) you could try to mediate and/or arbitrate the case. In determining which option to attempt to pursue, you need to evaluate the viability of your defenses.




A:
A condominium is a hybrid type of ownership with individual ownership of the unit and an undivided interest with the other unit owners in the common area of the condominium. The condominium documents and, in particular the Master Deed, will define what is considered common area. Typically, the Trustees of a condominium are responsible for repairs and maintenance in the common area and you are responsible for repairs and maintenance in your unit. Who is responsible for any and all cleaning and repairs to your unit will depend upon what caused the mold in your unit (i.e. the failure of the trustees to maintain and repair the common area or the failure of the unit owner to maintain and repair their unit). In your case, it sounds like the mold arose from water infiltrating through the outside brick of your building. While you need to look at the condominium documents, typically the exposed brick on the outside of the condominium is considered common area. You should take the position that any damage to the interior of your unit was caused by the Trustees’ failure to adequately repair and maintain the common area. In such case, the Trustees are responsible to pay for the cost of repair, maintenance and cleaning in both the common area and your unit. Have an expert report confirming that the mold arose from water infiltrating through the outside brick of your building. Good luck.




A:
If your business is a sole proprietorship and/or partnership, your credit card company could attempt to attach the assets of your business to pay the debt you owe the credit card company. If your company is a corporation, limited liability partnership (i.e. LLP), and/or limited liability company (i.e. LLC), it is a separate legal entity from you individually and your credit card company cannot go after the business assets. If your business is not currently a corporation, LLC or LLP, you should consider forming one of these entities to protect both your business and personal assets. By setting up a corporation, LLC or LLP, your personal and business assets will be kept separate and you will not be personally liable for debts of the business. You can only loose the amount you have invested in the corporation, LLC or LLP on any debts owed by the business. You should consult with a lawyer and they can describe for you the benefits of establishing a corporation, LLC, and/or LLP.




A:
It is good business practice that you are weighing these issues before making an offer to purchase a commercial property. First, it is essential that you identify whether the pre-existing tenants are commercial or residential. Massachusetts law will be applied differently to residential leases because the law regards commercial leases as business transactions between parties of comparable sophistication and bargaining power and consequently imposes fewer restrictions on the nature and terms of commercial leases than it does on residential leases. Consequently, landlords generally have few opportunities to change the terms of a residential lease after it is signed. Feel free to contact us to discuss your situation further.
