MD Corp & Assn Code § 10-206 (2013) What's This?


(a) An executed copy of each certificate required by this subtitle, or of any judicial decree of amendment or cancellation, shall be filed with the Department. However, the Department may not accept for record any certificate or decree that does not meet the requirements of this title. A person who executes a certificate as an agent or fiduciary need not exhibit evidence of that person’s authority as a prerequisite to filing. The Department may not accept for record or filing any certificate, decree, qualification, registration, change of resident agent or principal office, report, service of process or notice, or other document until all required fees have been paid to the Department.

(b) When the Department accepts for record any certificate, the Department shall:

(1) Endorse on the document its acceptance for record and the date and time of acceptance;

(2) Record promptly the document; and

(3) (i) Send an acknowledgment to the partnership, its attorney, or its agent stating the date and time that the document was accepted for record; and

(ii) Unless the partnership, its attorney, or its agent at the time of filing declines the return, return the document on payment of the fee provided in § 1-203(b)(10) of this article.
