Redwood City, CA asked in Contracts, Business Formation, Land Use & Zoning and Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: I am looking to purchase a small business auto repair shop, primarily to get the lease for the location. Is it possible

Ideally I do not want to purchase the business name etc I will change it to a smog check station. Also if you can go over the lease it would be great.

A: Yes, what you are requesting is possible ... and, as you might imagine, there are a number of other issues to consider. I would recommend that you schedule a few initial free consultations, by video call or telephone call, with two or three different attorneys ... Shawn Jackson - Business Development Attorney.
