What are some mistakes made by small business owners?

While owning a business is a dream of many people in Georgia, it’s certainly not an easy task. That’s why it’s essential that new business owners understand common slip-ups that accompany a new business, which can help them avoid these mistakes. In this case, The Balance offers the following advice.

How does a business conduct liquidation?

Every business owner reaches one inevitable conclusion – now is the time for me to get out of the business. Maybe you are retiring and want to turn the business over to children or business partners. Maybe you plan to sell to a competitor. Maybe you are forced to declare bankruptcy.

What should I know about foreclosure scams?

Homeowners in Georgia are willing to do almost anything to avoid foreclosure. This leaves them vulnerable to foreclosure relief scams, which make incredible promises like helping homeowners keep their homes or lower their mortgage payments. PennyMac offers the following information on common scams so you can take the proper steps to avoid them.

Are verbal contracts enforceable?

Many small business owners in Georgia enter into verbal contracts from time to time. In the event that the terms of these contracts are breached, it may be necessary to seek legal assistance, especially when money is on the line. However, The Balance explains that although verbal contracts may be legal, they’re not always enforceable in a court of law.

Your landlord could evict you

As a renter, there is an expectation that you will abide by the terms of the lease you established with your landlord, or rental company. This agreement serves to protect their interests, though it outlines your rights as well. While a lease typically provides you and your landlord the opportunity to terminate this agreement, you may be interested in understanding the circumstances under which doing so is legal.
