Article 5 - Contributions and Distributions.
Section 10A-9A-5.02 - Liability for Contribution.
Liability for contribution.
(a) A partner's obligation to make a contribution to a limited partnership is not excused by the partner's death, disability, or other inability to perform personally.
(b) If a partner does not make a contribution required by an enforceable promise, the partner or the partner's estate is obligated, at the election of the limited partnership, to contribute money equal to the value of the portion of the contribution that has not been made. The foregoing election shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other rights, including the right to specific performance, that the limited partnership may have under the partnership agreement or applicable law.
(c) The obligation of a partner to make a contribution to a limited partnership may be compromised only by consent of all partners. A conditional obligation of a partner to make a contribution to a limited partnership may not be enforced unless the conditions of the obligation have been satisfied or waived as to or by that partner. Conditional obligations include contributions payable upon a discretionary call of a limited partnership before the time the call occurs.
(d) A creditor of a limited partnership which extends credit or otherwise acts in reliance on an obligation described in subsection (a), without notice of any compromise under this subsection, may enforce the original obligation.
(e) A promise by a partner to make a contribution to a limited partnership is not enforceable unless set forth in a writing signed by the partner.
