Meridian, ID asked in Business Law and Contracts for Idaho

Q: Who is responsible when suing an LLC?

I had an LLC do a $15k backyard project in October 2017, issues have risen and I am now planning to take the company to small claims. I learned that the company switched owners at the beginning of March 2018 and the new owners are now claiming they are not responsible. It is all listed under the same LLC, just different owners. Who is responsible? The new owner or the old one?

A: The prior owners will be responsible, but the new ones may be as well depending on the sales agreement when they purchased the business. You may want to talk to an attorney who can review all the facts of your situation.
