I signed a lease in my own name for a new business I am

This answer was rated:

Hi I signed a lease in my own name for a new business I am starting but now due to state requirements, the lease needs to be in the name of the corporation. I need to write a letter of consent saying that it binds the lease to the entity.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only

Is the landlord willing to sign the letter of consent, because the landlord needs to consent to bind the company to the lease and make you the personal guarantor.

Thank you, ***** ***** has three rooms and I plan to use one room for the corporation and another room as an office for my tax prep sole proprietorship. Will that be ok since I own both the businesses?

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, that would be fine, since you own both businesses.

Thank you. Is it possible for you to email me an example of the letter just to be more accurate and precise?

Thank you for your reply.

I wrote the letter for you, there is no other example of the letter. That is what you put on paper with filling in all your blanks and use. You already have an "example" of the letter, that is what I typed above.

Ok, when I read it again I can see where I can fill the names. Thanks for all your help. I will rate you at top.
Thank you for your reply and for doing so.

Yes, the formatting of things on this site is awful, so no matter how we format it initially, when it posts it all looks the same.
