Chapter 179. Uniform limited partnership act.
179.42 Liability for contribution.


179.42 Liability for contribution.


(1) A promise by a limited partner to contribute to the limited partnership is not enforceable unless specified in writing and signed by the limited partner or specified in a provision of the certificate of limited partnership in existence on April 28, 1990.


(1m) Except as provided in the partnership agreement or in a certificate of limited partnership under s. 179.105 (2), a partner is obligated to the limited partnership to perform any enforceable promise to contribute cash or property or to perform services, even if he or she is unable to perform because of death, disability or any other reason. If a partner does not make the required contribution of property or services, he or she is obligated at the option of the limited partnership to contribute cash equal to that portion of the value, as stated in the partnership records required to be kept under s. 179.05, of the stated contribution that has not been made.


(2) Unless otherwise provided in the partnership agreement, the obligation of a partner to make a contribution or return money or other property paid or distributed in violation of this chapter may be compromised only by consent of all the partners. Notwithstanding the compromise, a creditor of a limited partnership may enforce the original obligation if the creditor extends credit or otherwise acts in reliance on the obligation after the partner signs a writing which reflects the obligation and before a certificate of amendment or cancellation reflecting the compromise is filed.
