lease covered that we the tenant would reimburse costs relating to the premises - we did this for all costs charged to use during the lease.
this was a lease on a commercial property.
I am asking because we are very small company and owner is UK top 100 - amount is massive to us, tiny to them.
clearly you would normally expect charges to be made during the lease term.
the lease agreement is now over, and I wondered if in law, therefore anything we agreed to no longer applies.
The lease agreement is in my office, I don't have it to hand now. I do know that the wording is such that had they made the charges in question during the lease term, we would have paid them.
There must come a point when your ex landlord must stop firing invoices at you. My understanding is that the law of 6 years to recover a debt applies from the date of invoicing. But there must be surely a smaller window from providing services to invoicing them (I am aware of the VAT law here, again I think it is a separate issue).
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX it there for today.
