Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
My question is how to interpret Notice to Exercise Option to Renew from Tenant's attorney to Landlord?
Tenant's option is a unilateral action, so, based on the facts I presented to you, what is your legal interpretation of the Notice sent in 2013; is it valid, or not?
I am asking on behalf of landlord.
Your answer is very good.
Landlord asked an attorney to sent a letter to the Tenant 4 months prior to the termination of Option term in 2013, notifying Tenant that Landlord had no intention to negotiate a new lease. Letter was received by the Tenant.
What about Renewal of Lease agreement prepared for the Tenant in 2009, never signed by both parties, and rejected by the Tenant's attorney?
Can the Tenant somehow based the 2013 Notice of Exercising Option on that agreement?
Now I have a clear answer and will accept it.
