Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Unless your lease requires you to cover costs for damages to the garage or damages caused by third parties, then this should not be your responsibility or issue. Also, your tenant should not have legal grounds to deduct rent due to you because of something like this.
Hi - I undderstand the facts, and I assumed you were wanting to know whether or not your tenant had grounds to withhold rent because of a condition that has nothing to do with you. IF that's the question, it would appear that you have no liability to your tenant unless your lease agreement creates some type of obligation or liability for this issue.
