Can I use a physical address as my business name w/out being sued?
Hi! I want to use the address to the house I grew up in as a business name. Would I risk getting sued for that? Thanks for any insight!
The laws are different depending on the country in which you are, I recommend you change the name a little, that is, you can use the name of the address of the house where you grew but change something that makes it different or unique or in case consult with a lawyer in your city if placing the name of the address where you grew up has some kind of legal consequence. I hope I can help you with my answer!
I’ve seen people use cross streets as a way to make it non-specific, i.e. Ash & Maple Inc.
