Customer Question

We have a Sears Franchise with a contract until 2018. The landlord of our building is doubling the rent to $17,000 per month in 2017 and we don't make enough money to pay that rent. Can I get out of the Sears Franchise Agreement?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Wyoming
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: no this is just now happening
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

What does the contract say, if anything, about cancellation?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hmm, I don't have the contract here with me - my brother has it. I have reached out to him for the verbiage.
Expert:  TJ, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Okay. You will need to review it because the contract will govern this issue.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK - he is going to scan it and send it to me. I'll be back in touch then.
Expert:  TJ, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Sounds good. Thanks.
