I'm presidant of Artworks, a co-op gallery in North Beach,

Customer Question
Hi, I'm presidant of Artworks...
Hi, I'm presidant of Artworks, a co-op gallery in North Beach, MD. We have a 5 year lease with our land lady. I have informed her numerous times that we do very little Business in the winter months. We did not enough money in our checking account to pay the total rent. First time in over 4 years. We wrote her a check for $1900.00 which was $600 short and informed her we'd pay the rest as soon as we got it. She came in the gallery yesterday, voidedthe check and e mailed me that if she doesn't get the money in full by noon Friday we are in default. Default meaning we pay interest and.may need to leave in 90 hours. What can we do..we offered her all the money we had. What can we do

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
