Terms of Lease vs other people and other problems
Hi, my husband is a licensed psychologist and I work with him. Currently, we have shared space with 5 counselors and a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Have a waiting room and one hallway with 5 offices and conference room. I use the conference room for testing (which 90% of the time is when no one else is there). No one else is charged. Our receptionist works in there since another renter has taken sole “custody” of reception area up front (we don’t need anyone greeting our clients, but easier access would be helpful). The landlord, who works in one of the offices, wants to charge $100/hour for use of the conference room. I’m not sure if that includes our receptionist – anyone can join her, and often do. I assume that contracts can say whatever the landlord wants? Questions- Our contract says no pets. Other employees have brought in pets. Price per sq foot for us is different from at least one person (her friend) who pays $300 less per month for the same size, shape, and condition of the room. What’s the landlord’s obligation re keeping common areas painted with non-ripped/beat up furniture (a toy bench is really bad) in the waiting room? I read that carpets need to be replaced every 5 years (life of carpet) – true? Also, the landlord, who is a counselor, uses a business name of *** Psych Services. It is illegal in Az to use even psych if you are not a licensed psychologist, which she is not. Do we have to have our name under hers since we aren’t part of her “group?” Actually, no one in the group is and the lease isn’t from under name. Isn’t It illegal to not have hot or at least warm water (esp in bathrooms) – we work with children, but there should at least be warm water). Can I make her fix it before signing? Only have cold and cool. We are looking for space, obviously, but don’t want to sign the contract as is. Thanks!0 Replies
