I recently signed a commercial lease that will commence on

I recently signed a commercial lease that will commence on April 1st. My occupation of the premises is set to start on March 10th. My question to you is do I have any way of getting out of this lease if I haven't occupied the premises in any way?

It's a legal question. I have a store in a commercial bldg.

It's a legal question. I have a store in a commercial bldg. I rented the store from a friend of mine in 2004 on a ten year lease. My friend sold the bldg in 2009. The new landlord renewed our lease in 2014, for 3years. Our lease expires in Dec 2017. When we renewed the landlord required 2 months security which we paid. The rents in the town I am in, in the hamptons NY ,are astronomical.We may simply not be able to afford to stay. The landlord owns other bldgs. In town and is known for deducting huge amounts from the security once the tenant leaves, so my question is : can I just not pay the last 2 months rent or am I looking for trouble?Also: when we rented the space we had to do a total remodel, how much of this work do we need to remove , or we just leave the store the way it is since this is how it was WHEN THEY BOUGHT then building?

We have a commercial lease. One month in (after making cosmetic improvements) we found out that the address was never issued by our County and we could not obtain a zoning permit to get our business license. The landlord had to have known. She had a previous tenant. There is no legal description other than the incorrect address. Can we 'void' this lease and request a refund of our security deposit, February rent and improvements made?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: Virginia.JA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: What do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: We can't file any paperwork for that space until the County assigns a number.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm the person in virginia with the commercial lease

We are a small business with a commercial lease on an office

We are a small business with a commercial lease on an office property. We're four years into a 5 year lease. The property manager has created an unworkable, noisy situation for us by putting a dance studio tenant upstairs on thin floors. We need to negotiate sound-proofing since we cannot use our office for our business purposes when the dance studio is in action. I also want to ask for permission to obtain a co-tenant since our space has become larger than needed. There's more back story, but how might you help us?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: We have our lease agreement from 5 years ago, and there have been emails back and forth about it. The upstairs tenants do have a use permit. Otherwise, noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There has also been some damage to our space - warped flooring and doors that we installed - due to flooding caused by the build out upstairs.

My husband and I have a small business and sub lease work

My husband and I have a small business and sub lease work space from the lessor. We were about to sign a second lease when the lessor mentioned off the cuff that he can "change the lease at any time." Obviously we are concerned and want to have the language looked at. I have someone scheduled thru Legalzoom but the soonest time was Tuesday. Was hoping to take care of this sooner.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: NYJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: no, we are stallingJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I've never used this site before and don't know the drill. $$?
