What protection can we get from the Condominium administration?

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Good day!

We're renting one commercial unit located at the ground floor of a condominium. The condo has two towers/bldgs. Building A has around 10 commercial units while Building B has around 10 commercial units. All commercial units are owned by a private lessor already.

Total population of the two buildings is around 200 tenants.

Our business is a laundryshop. There are two existing laundryshops when I put up mine. One each building at that time.

Im business is located at Building A. Around 6 months after I opened my shop another laundry shop was opened almost 2 shops before mine and right beside the existing laundry shop.. So there are 3 laundry shosp in the building A that time.

Then now another laundry shop is about to open soon right beside me. So we are 4 laundry shops now right beside each other. 4 laundry shops (tabi tabi).

Id like to know if the admin violated any rules regarding this case. What protection should we getfrom the admin, since we're paying monthly dues as well? What legal actions can we do regarding this?

Please help!

there is no law prohibiting that. the condo is in the business of leasing out, and unless it's in your contract, they don't have make you the exclusive laundry providers.

the best argument i can think of is the abuse of right doctrine, but even i'm not convinced it will work if this reached the courts.

better read the fine prints of your contract of lease. the said contract may provide answers to your question

Thank you for all the replies. I have settled this issue and survive the competition pretty well but decided to sell my business for personal reasons. However, I'm having problems with regards to getting my deposits. Here is the link to that thread I just posted a today. Thank you!
