Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I am only able to communicate with JustAnswer.com customer through this website.
Please let me know if you would like to proceed?
Thank you for your follow up.
Unfortunately, if the lease states that the commercial tenant is liable for pro-rated real estate taxes and the taxes are pro-rated correctly and the landlord is demanding the correct amount of taxes that commercial tenant owes, it would be legal for the landlord to make such demand and 60 days is actually a very generous time period within which the owed tax amount has to be paid, since even 10-30 days would be considered reasonable under the law.
So, generally, it is good idea to review the lease and then also to request a detailed explanation as to how tax amount was calculated and if the amount is correct, then it might be possible to attempt negotiate some type of payment plan with the landlord and hopefully the landlord would be willing to work with you.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.
I wish you the best of luck and God bless you!
