Josh-2010 :

Do I understand correctly that you had no lease please?

Josh-2010 :

Did you have exclusive occupation of the premises?

Josh-2010 :

Is there anything in writing at all to evidence your agreement?

Josh-2010 :

Did you agree a right to assign the lease?

JACUSTOMER-hjshxq2w- : No lease however she and I signed a letter to say I would be there nine years and that the 15000 was for that I occupied the front of the shop however now she has moved someone else in my space not even a day after I left so I feel she was bullying me to make me leave
Josh-2010 :

Thanks. Did you have exclusive occupation of the space or was this a shared space please?
