Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
His conduct you are describing is a breach of your lease. In any lease, the landlord guarantees peaceable use and enjoyment of the premises. If he is interfering with your business and causing disruption, he is in breach of lease. So you need to give him written notice that his continued conduct is a breach of the lease and to cease and desist or you will pursue him for damages for breaching your lease and interfering with the business and the associated losses his conduct is causing you. If he continues, then you need to file suit against him for breach of lease and seek your damages in court and a restraining order against him to prevent continued conduct.
