A good lease gives commercial tenants specific rights and when a landlord refuses to make repairs   requested by the tenant or fails to maintain the property or have required inspections the landlord is said to be in “breach” of the contract and the tenant may be able to sue.   Conversely, if the tenant breaches the lease, usually by failing to pay some or all of the rent, then the tenant is in “breach” of the contract and the landlord can file a lawsuit.

If you have been sued by your landlord or think you should file a lawsuit against your landlord call The Law Offices of Lee M. Herman, Esquire to know what your rights are.
