This blog has been around since 2009 so it’s no surprise that questions recur.  It’s ok to ask questions on subjects that have already been discussed because the answers do vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and over time and the facts or circumstances may be different. But for those looking for a shortcut, here’s a list of frequently asked questions and a link that will search the blog to bring up relevant prior posts.  Have a look at those, but if your question is still unanswered, feel free to send me an email at
