My wife and I were living in an apartment in Scottsdale

Customer Question
Arizona. Our business is also...
My wife and I were living in an apartment in Scottsdale Arizona. Our business is also located in Scottsdale. We are now moving out of the country yet wish to keep the apartment as more or less a corporate apartment.
We've allowed one of the company employees to live there and we plan to reserve the other bedroom for ourselves when we come to visit the office one every month or two.
Would it be fair to call this now a business apartment? Can we pay the costs out of the business? If we didn't keep this $1000 monthly expense we may incur at least that amount or more in hotel fees during our regular visits.

Is the tenant on the lease listed as you and your wife, personally, or the business?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Currently we are all personally on the lease but that could probably be amended. However, the lease will still of course require the names on it and agreement to tenancy terms, etc
Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 2 years ago

In order to be used as a corporate apartment the lease will need to be amended to show the business as the tenant and it must be used for "business purposes". You can be guarantors personally, but the tenant of record must be the company.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
