This answer was rated:

A business is being taken over by new owners. The previous owner has an agreement with another small business to have use of some of the space to run their business. The new owners do not want this small business to continue to run out of their shop. The small business does NOT pay rent to old owner and does not bring anything of benefit to the company. Is it as simple as telling the small business that new management is taking over and they are to leave the same date as management takeover? Or will new management have to take-on this small business in their shop?
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and hope I can help.

Is the agreement with the small business and the business or is it with the previous owner as an individual?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The previous owner as an individual. There was never a written agreement or contract. BUT the small business advertises that she is a part of the other business.

Since there was never a contract between the business itself and the small business, you would be able to kick the small business out of the same day when the new owners take over the same day.
