Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
He is not legally entitled to tenant improvements unless the lease agreement says that he is entitled to those improvement costs. Tenant improvements can include any work the tenant did to the building such as bathrooms or building walls or installing lighting or other fixtures.
