My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
When you purchased the business did the original owner lease both shops and was the lease assigned over to you?
What did the lease say about the rent and what you had to pay?
Was the lease assigned over to you or is it still in the previous business owners name?
Did you enter into a contract for the sale of business and was the lease part of that contract?
You have made an offer to pay an amount. That is all you pay once you are satisfied.
How are you going to prove that you own the equipment in the premises?
If you can prove that you own the equipment and that it is not the property of the tenant then you can get orders from NCAT to have it removed.
The Landlord can only lock out the tenant on the lease and you are not the tenant as the lease was never assigned over under the law.
