    I have a couple of simple questions concerning a commercial lease of a property that I hope you can answer.

    A one year lease is signed between the landlord and the tenant for
    a commercial property.

    Can the landlord enter the property after the lease is signed, and remove
    a fixture that was in the property before the lease was signed?
    The lease makes no mention of the removal of this fixture.

    The lease ends with the standard line of:
    "For matters not covered in this contract, the parties refer to the
    common law."

    The fixture in this case is an air conditioner (A/C) installed in the ceiling.

    The owner asked us before and after we signed the lease agreement if we would
    like to buy the A/C. Each time they asked, we said we were not interested.

    Soon after taking possession of the property, the owner stated that they
    will be coming to remove the A/C.

    We simply would like to know if the owner has the legal right to
    remove the A/C at any time during the term of our lease agreement?

    You didn't reveal your location on the other site where I answered your question but I'm going with the same answer anyway:

    Yes, he does. You had opportunities to buy it, you refused. It's his.

    I seriously doubt that you'll get very far raising the issue of his entry or the removal of the item if you took him to court, if that's what you are asking, because you have suffered no monetary damages..

    Forget it and move on.
