Dear Mr Smith,
I am writing regarding the lease dispute which has arisen between yourself and your tenant, Acme 123 Ltd, at your factory at Harbour Lane, Birmingham. You have asked us for our advice on your legal position in relation to the present situation.
As I understand the situation, Acme 123 Ltd signed a 5 year lease of these premises on 20th December 2012 whereby they were to start leasing and occupying the premises on the first of January 2013 until 31st December 2018 at an annual rent of Ten thousand GB Pounds. Initially they were satisfactory lessees and paid their quarterly rent on the due date every three months. A year ago, however, they started to fall behind with their rent payments and the last quarter’s rent, remains unpaid.
