(a) When partnership bound.--After a person is dissociated as a partner without the dissociation resulting in a dissolution and winding up of the partnership business and before the partnership is merged or divided out of existence, converted or domesticated under Chapter 3 (relating to entity transactions), or dissolved, the partnership is bound by an act of the person only if:
(1) the act would have bound the partnership under section 8431 (relating to partner agent of partnership) before dissociation; and
(2) at the time the other party enters into the transaction:
(i) less than two years have passed since the dissociation; and
(ii) the other party does not know or have notice of the dissociation and reasonably believes that the person is a partner.
(b) Liability of person dissociated as partner.--If a partnership is bound under subsection (a), the person dissociated as a partner which caused the partnership to be bound is liable:
(1) to the partnership for any damage caused to the partnership arising from the obligation incurred under subsection (a); and
(2) if a partner or another person dissociated as a partner is liable for the obligation, to the partner or other person for any damage caused to the partner or other person arising from the liability.
