Commercial tenant holding-over on lease (expired 2000!). Has always refused all my efforts to sign new lease.
Is now trying to sell his business (I have seen his advert on-line). I have previously served a Section 25 Agreement on him which I have now extended by 3 months. He now has to vacate the property by June 24th 2013 (or apply to the court for a new lease which he doesn't want to do). I have also served a Schedule of Dilapidations on him which he says he will attend to.
My question is, once the dilaps have been attended to, do I have to allow him more time to sell his business if necessary or do I have the right to find a new tenant before he has found a buyer for his business? If I take the latter course, he will have to leave before he has concluded a sale of his business. Informed advice would be most appreciated.
