I was given legal occupation for a commercial property with

Customer Question

i was given legal occupation for a commercial property with a rent free period of two years, the rent free was on condition that we update the property which we have and now after all that the landlord has wrote to us saying that we need the property to be vacated as we are trespassing and does not accept out occupation.
what can we do, its so expensive to employ a solicitor, they are asking for a arm a leg to take it up.
is there anything i can do to stop the landlord by going to court and what steps i should take against the landlord for breach of trust and for misleading us. we feel that we were used by the landlord.
we have never been in this positio before and dont know what to do

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,
