Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
My Step-father was the one who handled the lease but he passed away in 2006. My mom just turned 80 years old. I'm just trying to help out because she doesnt know that much about it. Cost of cleanup is anywhere from 6000 to 8000 dollars. We were told by the oil company not to sign the termination papers until they had the oil cleaned up. They knew I had a tenant interested in the building because I told them. Thank you for your help.
The oil company didnt remove all of their equipment until at least 5 months after the lease terminated. They had the locks changed twice to get in the building by whomever they contracted to do it. This was done without me or my mother being notified. My last question is was this legal?
