I'm a tenant and have asked the landlord some questions

Customer Question

I'm a tenant and have asked the landlord some questions concerning the lease between the two parties. Does he have the right to ignore my written questions?

We have an existing lease that's been in effect for 7 years with 3 years remaining. His refusal to answer puts our retail business on hold. I don't believe that the questions were pursuant to a lease as you suggest.

You are asking him questions about the lease, right?

Do to a stroke I'm unable to speak clearly and difficult to hear. So phones don't work for me. The answer that I received was incorrect and assumed information before a lease. The answer jumped to a conclusion that was not stated. A waste of time and expense.
