Good morning, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Does your rental agreement provide that you have sole usage of the office space? Have you informed the landlord?
Yes you can send a copy and I will review the same.
You can attach the contract using the paperclip icon.
Good morning, if the contract provides that you have exclusive use of the office space the landlord would be in breach of contract. I would advise that you inform the landlord that you do not wish for other persons to be allowed access to your office space. It is always best to try and resolve the matter informally before taking any further steps.
If this fails you could make an application to the court, for specific performance, a it is unlikely that damages would be an adequate remedy.The orders for specific performance would relate to the exclusivity of the use of the office space.
However before going down this route it is probably best to explore alternative dispute resolution, by using either professional mediation, arbitration, or expert determination. Each have their own advantages and disadvantages, if a dispute ends up in court, the judge will usually look at whether the parties tried alternative dispute resolution first.
