Lease Was Silent on Vacating After Owner’s Failure to Send Notices
Facts: Two years after it signed a 15-year lease, a tenant vacated and abandoned its space. The owner sued the tenant and the two guarantors for the lease for damages including unpaid rent and other costs it incurred for the three months that passed before it was able to find a replacement tenant.
The owner asked a court for a judgment in its favor without a trial. A New York trial court denied the request. The owner filed a motion to renew and reargue.
Decision: The Supreme Court of New York denied the motion.
