Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Was the lease signed only when you were a Ltd company or beforehand please?Alex
From what you have said, the period where you didnt pay rent cant be counted. If you had paid rent then you would have an argument to say it should be included. But on the basis you didnt pay rent, you cant really 'double dip' as it were, because you would not be paying rent and getting compensation.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Yes I would agree, its in YOUR favour. They have not had a lease since before the business. Therefore its not included.
Does that clarify? Alex
They are entitled to compensation but not BEFORE the lease started.
All the best. Alex
