The Importance of a Commercial Buy/Sell Agreement in Maryland
As a business owner in Maryland, having a clear understanding of the different legal agreements involved in the ownership and transfer of a business is critical. One such agreement is a Commercial Buy/Sell Agreement. It’s important to understand what a Buy/Sell Agreement is, why it’s essential for business owners, and why you need an attorney to help you draft a legally sound agreement.
What is a Commercial Buy/Sell Agreement?
A Commercial Buy/Sell Agreement is a contract between the owners of a business that lays out the terms and conditions for the transfer of ownership in the event of death, disability, or retirement of an owner. The agreement defines how the business will be sold, who has the right to buy and at what price. This agreement provides a roadmap for the orderly transition of ownership and helps to ensure that the business remains in capable hands.
Why is a Buy/Sell Agreement Important?
A Buy/Sell Agreement helps to ensure that the business continues to operate smoothly, even if one of the owners leaves the business due to death, disability, or retirement. The agreement provides a clear plan for the transfer of ownership and eliminates the risk of disputes between the remaining owners and the heirs of the departing owner. It also provides a mechanism for determining the fair market value of the business and ensuring that the departing owner is paid a fair price for their share of the business.
