, Thank you question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.
If the garage is part of the leased demise, then by removing it and challenging your exclusive possession of the property he is breaching your lease. You should demand either a reduction in the rent, or sue the landlord of contract.
The landlord cannot just unilaterally alter the terms of the lease.
Do you want to terminate the contract? Or do you want a reduced rent?
, Thank you. Have you started by just writing back and saying "you have exclusive possession of the demised premises" and are not prepared to give it up the lease has expired?
Have you just said no?
*up until the lease has expired.
, Thank you. ***** mean is you have to make clear that you have a lease over the demised premises and it is yours to have exclusive possession over until the lease has expires.
You have the following options:
1. You do nothing and let the landlord take the garage back:
2. You dig your heels and say it belongs to you and refuse to give possession back;
3. You give possession back and ask rent reduction.
Ultimately it is a decision on how much you want to upset the landlord.
