There are a number of steps involved when you sell a business, and they will vary based on the nature of your business. There may be tax consequences as well.

With respect to the lease, it will depend on the terms of the original lease and whether you are permitted to assign the lease to another person or entity. Is the lease in your name, or the name of your LLC?

This could have been resolved before you sold. If the LLC signed the lease, your name means nothing unless you guaranteed payment. Your name should be removed from the LLC filing with the Department of Corporations.
