Can a landlord throw me out of my business premises without a court order. I have not breached any agreements and never had rent arrears or late payments, he says he just wants to use premises himself. I had initial lease for one year written and verbal agreement if business went ok I could renew lease for longer period 3-5 years. Both lease and verbal agreements were witnessed. The lease came to an end in April 2014. When I asked for new lease he stalled, and then he tried to give me a lease for only six months which I said was no good and outwith our agreements. I did not sign this lease as it was not what was agreed. I was under the believe under 'tacit relocation' the lease would automatically carry on for one year period as at no time prior to the end of the contractural period did my landlord serve notice to quit or the lease would not be renewed or amended.
Please help. He now threatens to throw me out this September.
What can I do to stop him.
