Tenant Could Remove Fixtures During Unofficial Extension Period
Facts: A restaurant tenant faced with an eviction order offered the owner of the space $40,000 to extend the time it could use the space after it was supposed to vacate. The tenant wanted to use the extra time to work out a deal with a potential buyer of the restaurant, who planned to use the same space. The deal fell through, however. In the meantime, the tenant tried to remove some of its trade fixtures and equipment; the owner’s representative refused to allow this.
