Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
I am assuming that he won't voluntarily agree to be removed from the lease?
How long is the lease?
Will the landlord work with you on the situation?
Ok, then unfortunately you can't force him off if he won't agree to terminate his interest. But if the landlord will work with just you, you could arrange to stop paying rent, let him evict you and the ex, and then you agree to repay him the back rent and he signs a new lease with only you.. Meanwhile you just continue running the business as usual.
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
