Attorney Arcadier : New lease, new company with a new partner that can serve as an incorporator.
What are the things I should be concerned about.
They were asking about the rent but can they ask for deposit too? as the company was shut down and has no patient base
Attorney Arcadier : That they will shut you down again with the presumption that is same company just different name.
Attorney Arcadier : Landlord can ask for whatever he wants you are free to accept or not accept.
If the company A has lease for 10 yrs and was shut down by FBI, can they still sublease the business or I have to deal with the landlord
i mean whom i should be dealing with... landlord or the lease holder that was shut down by the FBI
Attorney Arcadier : The landlord. The prior lease is now void due to criminal activity.
Attorney Arcadier : No. Lease is terminated when property is used for criminal activity.
& how can I determine who is the landlord, is there a way i can look
If the lease holder and the landlord was same, then can I still run the same business there?
Attorney Arcadier : Landlord is the property owner. You find the property owner by going to the government property appraiser for your city.
Attorney Arcadier : Yes... with the consent of landlord or the administrator of landlord if landlord is in jail.
The lease for a the business will be just like opening up the same business anywhere
it doesn't matter whether it was shut down or not
Attorney Arcadier : Yes. Lease is void after criminal activity.
Attorney Arcadier : You need a new lease with the landlord.
but is the landlord is considered fraud?
Attorney Arcadier : only if it was his business.
Attorney Arcadier : You are wrong. the prior lease is void.
so can I deal with the fraud landlord?
Attorney Arcadier : yes. that has no problems.
Attorney Arcadier : You are welcome. Best wishes.
