Can the Resident Agent of a sole proprietor LLC in Maryland

This answer was rated:

Can the Resident Agent of a sole proprietor LLC in Maryland also be added as principle Officer of the business? The "owner" is incapacitated and his relative has agreed to be a part of the business.

Good morning. Yes, but if the owner cannot make this decision on his behalf and the owner has not previously given someone a durable power of attorney, someone will need to file a petition in the family court to declare the owner incapable of making decisions and declare a guardian for the owner. The guardian can then make the appointment of a new offer on behalf of the owner.
