Ordinarily, a commercial tenant who vacates a premesis is entitled to leave with only those fixtures that they brought into the tenancy. In other words, if a fire extinguisher was mounted on the wall when the tenant got there, the tenant is ordinarily not allowed to take it when they leave; if the tenant mounts a fire extinguisher after the occupancy commences, the tenant can take it with them when they leave.


That said, if a tenant mounts fixtures that cause damage to the premises, and if said mounting is done in violation of the rental/lease agreement or without permission from the landlord, the landlord is ordinarily entitled to reimbursement for the repairs. best of luck.
