Meeting Requirements to Bring Claim to Trial
Q: A provision in my lease for space in a retail center specifies that I must fix any damage to the elevator that I use as part of my business. The owner recently discovered that the equipment has been damaged, and it sent me a notice to cure. However, I think the damage occurred before I moved into the space. I’m asking for a judgment in my favor without a trial. The owner wants a trial. What are the key requirements the owner would have to meet?
