My question involves business law in the state of: PA
My father had a registered fictitious name and passed 5 years ago. I would like to transfer ownership of that name to me so I can use it for my consulting business.
I do not know if he had any debts related to this business entity. Upon his death he had no will and no property so was insolvent.
Is there a risk of debts being transfered to me by filing the required paperwork to transfer ownership of the entity? If so, how could I resesrch and ensure there are no outstanding debts?
