  • Semi Non-compete issue Florida

    A friend of mine rented commercial space from a Dance studio. That friend, let's call her "D" runs a Ballett, Jazz, Tap school for kids, teens and adults. The Landlord (let's call her "L") begged D to stay and keep renting space from her, although D's business was not going too well. D agreed to stay, but now Landlord L has decided to rent another space out to another teacher that teaches the same disciplines as D does. Since the new tenant is a larger and more established facility (they are renting the space in addition to their regular studio somewhere else), this move of the Landlord will put D out of business.
    Anything anyone knows of that can be done to prevent this from happening?
    This is not the first time Landlord L has done things like that to people, just no one ever decided it would be something to fight for.

    The lease will show the agreed upon terms between the LL and tenant. If an exclusive use in the building is not provided for, the LL can rent to as many dance studios as they desire.

      Agree. The LL can rent to anyone they want unless there is something in the lease between the LL & tenant to the contrary.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
