I have a store in a mall. 12 days ago the owner told me he was moving a much larger store and needed my space and I should move. He ask me when I could be out. I said 1 to 2 months. Since then he has ask via text that I move asap. The owner bought this mall out of bankruptcy and for 10 years has not given me a new lease. I'm 1 month behind on rent and can pay it today via mail. I'm told he plans to be here Monday and I assume he will want me out asap. It took 4 months to build this store and I will loose my leasehold improvements. This is a pet store and many live animals are involved. He has failed to keep up the property , only a couple of a/c units in the halls work, the parking lot is a disaster no maintenance or upkeep. Can he lock me out, I have looked for a place to move and nothing is available. I have been a tenant for 30 years and will move, but i need time, at least another month. How can I prepare for this meeting Monday. Can he throw me out with out written notice? Help me develop a strategy.

I am actually a student doing a case study on Landlord and

Hello, I am actually a student doing a case study on Landlord and Tenant commercial law. In the case study, the tenant signed a 5-year lease contract, has paid the deposit and had purchased new equipment for a franchise food business that they stored in the commercial unit. The franchise went bankrupted and the landlord performed a lockout. The landlord refuses to let tenant in unless tenant agrees to perform the lease (rent the building) or pay $80,000 in damages. Tenant is still interested in renting the space but will need to renegotiate the monthly rent and the number of years. Does the landlord have the right to lockout and demand of pre-payment?

I am a person in Miami Florida renting a unit from a

I am a person in Miami Florida renting a unit from a property owner for the purpose of vacation rentals. I have been paying rent for two units owned by the landlord for 6 months. We got into a payment dispute where I believe the landlord owes me money and he believes I owe him money.He changed the locks on the door to one unit on multiple occasions.today, I caught the landlord'so employee changing the locks again. I called the police who were pretty unhelpful. They seemed completely oblivious to landlord tenant law. I explained the landlord has to put 3 day notice if he believes that I owe him rent.They called the landlord'so property manager who explained to the police that I voluntarily vacated the unit. Mind you I still have all of my property onot the inside.The police determined that since I am renting the unit for vacation renting purposes and not an actual resident of the unit that I am technically not a tenant. If the landlord does not want me renting the unit anymore then I am not allowed to be there. I explained that I've been paying them rent for 6 months and I never explained to them I was leaving. They determine that they have no proof or at least that I'm supposed to be there and they let the employee change the locks.Since they seem to be unaware of landlord tenant law, but they did make a good point of that I'm not a resident but I'm just paying them rent for the purpose of re-renting.I am compelled to find out from an attorney if they are right or do I fall under the category of a tenant .

I am currently experience a dispute with my landlord on a

I am currently experience a dispute with my landlord on a commercial/office space. I have been offered a position in another city and am forced to terminate my lease early. My lease agreement stipulates that "If the tenant does not honor this lease agreement, then the security deposit will become the landlord's property."My landlord stated that he paid the commercial realtor who listed the property fees for the entire contract and is not claiming that I am responsible for the rent at the very least until the office is leased again.I feel that his contract with his realtor and my contract with the landlord are two separate items and that I should not be held responsible for any conditions outside of the terms in my contract.Your assistance is appreciated.
