    Hi, I really need some advise. Here is the situation:

    Landloard gave me a lease without signing it and it took me 2 weeks to review the lease.
    After I signed and returned the lease with a check to the landlord who told me the deal is cancelled the very next day.

    I have moved in 45 days ago by giving him a personal check for 1 month rent as deposit to draw the lease. The lease was not ready until 3 weeks later since the lanlord was waiting for my coporation name which I and my partner has just applied for.

    I have spent $15K fixing the place to the way I want and bought some new heavy duty equipments for the new business. I also have recruited a few employees. It will costs me a good sum of money to move out in a month as this is the time I was told I have to move out.

    Can anyone tell me that if I decide to go to court :
    1) do I have the right staying in the place for 5 years as the landlord promised me verbally
    and gave me the lease wihch I returned with my signature and a check.
    2) do I have the right to claim the $15K I spent plus moving expenses if I have to leave.
    3) Would you rather be the lawyer for the Lanloard or the tenant ? Why? Which side will
    have a higher winning chance before judge ? What kind of percentage ?
    4) How much time I can drag in this case so that I have more time to look for a place to
    move ? How ?

    Thanks a million!

    Andy

    I suggest that you talk to a local attorney. As for dragging it out, he will have to evict you. You have a good case.
