ST. LOUIS — A property owner is suing a property lesser, citing alleged breach of contract.
Landing Associates LLC filed a complaint on July 5 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Seven Zero Eight LLC, Elliot J. Winter and William C. Arrington, alleging that the defendants failed comply with the lease agreement to pay rent and other obligations.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it entered into a lease agreement with the defendants in which the defendants had the right to occupy and improve the property from Sept. 1, 2016 to Aug. 31, 2017. The contract allegedly states the defendants were required to pay base rent payments, additional rent payments for real estate taxes, insurance and common area maintenance. The plaintiffs claim that they only received the base rent payments from November and December 2016. The plaintiffs also allege that no additional rent payments and percentage rent payments have been made.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly not paying base rent from January to June, additional rent from September 2016 to June, percentage rent, placing all of the utilities in its name or paying the utilities on time.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to award for damages for all past due rent and utility payments, plus principal and interest amount accruing, costs and expenses, attorneys' fees incurred and any other relief the court deems just. The plaintiff is represented by R. Thomas Avery and Michael P. Benson of Blizt, Bardgett & Deutsch LC in St. Louis.
