Inventory Location Not Basis for Lease Termination
Facts: After signing a lease, a tenant was notified, via inspection, that its sprinkler system violated several fire code provisions. The inspection also noted that the tenant was storing merchandise too close to the sprinkler riser. The tenant asked the owner to correct the sprinkler system deficiencies. The owner responded by giving the tenant a notice stating that it would terminate the lease if the tenant did not move the items away from the sprinkler.
