(2) When registration of a partnership under 35-10-701 takes effect:
(a) all tangible and intangible property, whether real or personal, owned by the partnership remains vested in the partnership;
(b) all debts, obligations, or liabilities of and chargeable to the partnership continue as debts, obligations, or liabilities of the partnership; and
(c) any actions or proceedings pending by or against the partnership may be continued as if the registration under 35-10-701 had not occurred.
(3) If a partnership dissolves and its business continues without liquidation of the partnership affairs, the registration of the limited liability partnership must be considered continued and must continue to be applicable to the partnership continuing the business. The partnership continuing the business is considered to have filed any documents required or permitted under this section that were filed by the dissolved partnership. The partnership continuing the business shall renew its registration at the time the dissolved partnership would have been required to file an application for renewal pursuant to Title 30, chapter 13, part 2.
(4) If a partnership dissolves, winds up its affairs, and liquidates, the registration of the limited liability partnership must be considered continued and must remain in effect as to the partnership and the partners during the period of dissolution, winding up, and liquidation and as to the partners subsequent to dissolution, winding up, and liquidation as to debts, obligations, or liabilities for which a partner was not personally liable under 35-10-307 or 35-10-629.
