Thank you for your recommendation, it was defiantly helpful. Option 1 is too risky for me, option 2 sounds good.
I UNDERSTAND. COMMERCIAL LANDLORDS IMMEDIATELY START EVICTION AND LOCKOUTS WHEN THEIR TENANTS STOP PAYING. THERE AREN'T THE PROTECTIONS FOR COMMERCIAL TENANTS LIKE THERE ARE FOR RESIDENTIAL TENANTS.
However should I send them letter stating that I'm requesting again CAM break-down and if I do not get them I will have to involve court and lawyer and that they (landlord) will be responsible for the expenses incurred (lawyer fees, court filling fees, parXXXXX, XXXXXe).
YES. I WOULD SEND A LETTER BASICALLY STATING THAT IF YOU DON'T GET AN ITEMIZED BREAK-DOWN YOU WILL HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO PURSUE YOUR LEGAL REMEDIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO FILING SUIT FOR AN ACCOUNTING AND ITEMIZATION OF THE CAM EXPENSES.
That's what L. had before to me and I had no choice than to pay. I did pay a lot for the clashes with them before. So ultimately do I have legal right to recover expenses incurred if the judge does order to provide break-down.
TO ME, THEIR CAM CHARGES WERE FULL OF DOUBLE CHARGES AND MAYBE TRIPLE CHARGES. ABSOLUTELY YOU COULD RECOVER YOUR LEGAL FEES AND EXPENSES PURSUING THEM IN COURT.
and will there be a possibility to demand to audit CAM charges and statements from the previous periods? and if so to recover overcharges/overpayments?
YOU CAN GO BACK FAIRLY FAR - THAT IF THEY WERE FRAUDULENT - THE "DISCOVERY RULE" WOULD ALLOW YOU TO RECOVER BEYOND THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT
and further file a suit to seek punitive damages? ABSOLUTELY.
Sometimes it is not reasonably possible for a person to discover the cause of an injury, or even to know that an injury has occurred, until considerably after the act which causes the injury. For example, it may take several years to diagnose physical symptoms as having resulted from medical malpractice, or to discover a financial planner's embezzlement due to the issuance of false statements of account.
The "discovery rule", the statute of limitations begins to run when the injured person discovers, or should have discovered, the existence of the cause of action.
This would apply in your situation - that the statute of limitations would start to run when you discover their fraud.
