I might have a legal issue on my hands so I figured what better place to post some questions than on this group!
About 2 years ago I signed a commercial lease (the office is located in Charlestown, MA) that stated the space is 1400sqft.
Here's the exact wording on the lease regarding the size:
"RENT for approximately 1,400 sq ft of space in Building 11, (Lessor and Lessee agree that the square footage is for identification purposes only and includes a common area factor. Lessor and Lessee agree that the monthly rent is based upon the actual room and not the square footage)"
I measured it earlier today for someone who is looking to sublet the space, as I am moving... I did it twice and got back 1000sqft!
What are my options?
Aside from feeling stupid for not measuring it when I first got the space, I am quite upset. This is a material difference, rather than a rounding error.
Anyways, any input would be most appreciated.
