I am in a Commercial Lease in California. A few months ago

I am in a Commercial Lease in California. A few months ago we repainted the outside of our building due to peeling paint and discoloration but did not get written permission from the landlord. Turns out that the building had lead paint on it. We are now being asked to hire a contractor to strip the building down to concrete and remove the 55 year old lead paint. In our lease it says Unapproved Improvements shall be immediately removed at Sublessee's sol expense. We will have difficulty returning the building to 55 year old peeling paint and don't feel that the lead issue should be our problem.

Commercial lease for a restaurant in California was signed

Commercial lease for a restaurant in California was signed by two individuals on behalf of a tenant. Upon signing a lease, tenant formed a Limited Liability Corp. - LLC. One signer of the lease was let go and replaced by two new/different individuals (investors) without any changes to the lease.After a couple of years in business, LLC tenant found a buyer for the restaurant business and asked the landlord for a consent to assign a lease to a new business owner/owners. Landlord promised to sign a consent to the assignment of the lease. However, the signer who was asked to leave the LLC, is unwilling to sign the assignment of lease, so LLC tenant cannot sell the business. Is there a way to remove that original signer from the lease if he does not want to sign the assignment?

First a pay or quit notice was taped to my door that was not actually filed ,this was months back and now the front gate lock has been changed.I offered to pack up and leave but says I will have to pay $1000 for a half hour access to my property to pack and move.
