CC Ban On Tenant Business Owner?
Small Business owner who rents office suite within building. Have cc permits in SC (resident), PA, & UT. I have rented this unit from the current owner since 1997 when he purchased the building, and was also a renter of the same unit from the previous owner before the the transfer. Have not signed new lease in 6 years, just kept rolling on old terms. Anyway, he sends me over a new lease today and it has a statement regarding the prohibition on CC. (They already posted NO CC decal (legal) at entry to building few years back, but I knew that I had the right as renter/business owner to cc, so I just continued and no one was the wiser) Well now that they have language in this new lease prohibiting CC both in the buildiing & on the grounds. I am curious (as a business owner/tenant) if I have to comply with lease terms, and by accepting those terms through my signature, voluntarily giving up my right to cc? BTW.........current owner is NJ Liberal Anti, so any conversation or admission of CC is out of the question.
Cross out, date and initial the part you don't agree with
Agree. I think that is what I'd do.

At worst, you'll get a letter or phone call asking that you sign the lease as presented or move.
HOWEVER--- Since the place is posted, are you sure you aren't violating the law when you go to your office? Do you pass through part of a posted building that is not space leased to you? If so, check mate.
