Previously it has been possible to get a business or house forced in your name, despite not having the necessary slots to own the given property - we no longer do that.
If you win an auction, you must have the required slots before you can actually obtain the property you purchased.
The same thing applies to properties purchased in-game. If you have 10 businesses and want another one, but only have 6 slots, you will have to sell 5 businesses to purchase your new business.
In some instances, we may disregard the limit, but do not expect it - you will need a very good reason for us to do so.
Players exceeding the limit will not lose their properties.
This decision has been made to allow those with no businesses or houses to be able to obtain one, and to avoid hoarders who simply want to own everything with no regard for active players who want to actually use the properties to either gain money or roleplay with their (un)official factions.
This is not open for discussion.
