Filed under Running Your Business

I'm in the process of closing my business. At this point, my biggest concern is ending things on a positive note with my current customers—and receiving my security deposit in full from my landlord. A friend suggested I notify my customers and my landlord via good ole snail mail. Do you recommend any boilerplate language or legalese to include in these letters? I'd like to remain on good terms with both parties while still protecting my company.
