1. The dissolution of the partnership does not of itself discharge the existing liability
of any partner.
2. A partner is discharged from any existing liability upon dissolution of the partnership
by an agreement to that effect between himself or herself, the partnership creditor
and the person or partnership continuing the business; and such agreement may be
inferred from the course of dealing between the creditor having knowledge of the dissolution
and the person or partnership continuing the business.
3. Where a person agrees to assume the existing obligations of a dissolved partnership,
the partners whose obligations have been assumed shall be discharged from any liability
to any creditor of the partnership who, knowing of the agreement, consents to a material
alteration in the nature or time of payment of such obligations.
4. The individual property of a deceased partner shall be liable for all obligations
of the partnership incurred while the partner was a partner and for which the partner
was liable under section 358.150, but subject to the prior payment of the partner's separate debts.
