My landlord refused to negotiate with a representative I

Customer Question

My landlord refused to negotiate with a representative I chose to represent me in our lease negotiations. At my landords insistence we couldn't start until the last months of the lease. My rep asked me to get at least one year so we had some time. Again the landlord refused, and committed to only month to month. He also stated that he didn't want to take over my business. Over the next several years I again asked to try to come to an agreement. He always said no with the statement he didn't want my restaurant. After several years, two months ago he said he had a relative who was familiar with my business and wanted to take it over. I didn't get any value for my business which would have been in operation for 25 years come October 2016. I had to sell my house to raise enough capital to find another location and get it open. When I tried to buy a down-sized house I was refused because my new business was not enough to merit a mortgage. I feel that I was used and damaged. Do I have no recourse?
