    Landlord want me out of propery

    Hi, a lease joint lease was signed 17/02/20,for a commercial property, min of 2 years. The landlord has refused to except any rent from 1st March 2022, and states that he will only sign new lease with other tenent (we are both Barbers) both trading from the property and we have a rolling lease with no end of tenency. Can anyone please give any advice. Thankyou

    If it was a joint lease it seems both you and your presumed barbering partner were both party to it.

    So why do you think your partner should not be able to end the lease, and start a new one in his/her own name without you?

    I know little of commercial tenancies but doesn't sound as if you have a case. A much worse case anyway than if you were a sole tenant.

        Both of you are the tenant. You have joint and several liability, meaning that if one of you defaults then the landlord can require the other to pay the rent, etc.

        For the new lease, the landlord evidently thinks two heads are better than one.

          That's not what OP is saying - they are saying L wants to reject one of the joint tenants for the new lease.

            My apologies. In which case presumably the landlord thinks the other tenant a better bet? Perhaps the op can tell us why that might be?

              Hi thankyou for replies. Its a complicated situation. In 2020 my son and his uncle jointly signed the lease. Both paying half of the deposit and rent needed. We went into the 1st lockdown and during that time they refurbished it into a barbershop, both paying half towards everything. Started trading when lockdown lifted. Both sole traders, earning and keeping their own profits, and paying half the rent each, and half of the utility bills. All seemed to be going well until my son asked for the receipts, so he could do his HMRC (self assessment) for what had been purchased, for the shop, it was then that his uncle told him that the shop/business was nothing to do with my son (around this time we discovered it was registered at the council for business rates,, and only included his uncles name. His uncle then took him off the booksy app (while we were in last lockdown) effecting him getting any bookings at the shop and when he set up his own was told by his uncle that he couldnt use the shops name, it was his as he had by then again without my son had the name trademarked (when infact Uncle didnt want the name JonesBarbershop, it was my son that wanted to call it this, and have proof of this, and that my son payed half towards the signage). Uncle also told me son (oct 2020) that he was getting a third chair, and if my son didnt pay half toward it he wouldnt earn from it, son payed half £300"and from 15/04/21 he has kept all of my sons money from the 3rd chair, stating he is keeping it back for utility bills(which are no more than £35each pm) . When he refused to give the receipts, he also withheld my sons shop key (as the other uncle had had it) we contacted the landlord, explained the situations and told him that my son wanted to stay on the lease (as they had already been speaking with him about a futher 8 years. Landlord, shortly after speaking with him then text and said that he had agreed to sign with uncle soley, he reason being that he had had more contact with him!! One of them being when the uncle (again without mynson), he asked for a 2 month break in rent during last lockdown. He also recieved money from the council etc through a grant which he kept himsel. Here i should should explain also how, before they signed the joint lease he also asked my son how much savings he had(i didnt know this until he refused about the receipts) which was just short of 10,000. So my son was paying for his half of things with cash. (all a bjg old mess i know). The lease is a rolling lease 01/04/22. Son still pays half of the rent (and more than his half towards the bills). The landlord has stated that from 01/03/22, he will except no more rent from my son! And asked him if he intends to hand the keys back 01/04/22. He has broken none of the terms on the lease or agreement, any advice please. Thankyou
