did you get my response to this question?
hi, the contract says:
The landlord is to maintain the state & condition of
a) the structure, outside roof, foundaions, joists, floor slabs, load bearing walls,beams & columns of the building.
which he did but its the loss of earnings I am claiming for while I had to close the shop
yes I was unable to open as they had to rip all the floor up to put new joists etc in and the chemicals they used etc.
thanks, when I mentioned the problem to the lady I bought the business off she said the problem was there when she was in the shop which was over 2 years ago and the landlord has never been to check anything in the time I have been here, plus it is spreading to the front side of the shop now too.
