BATON ROUGE – Tenants of a Baton Rouge property allege their landlord failed to uphold the terms of a lease agreement.
Sharper Entertainment Inc., LaRouge Entertainment LLC and Leonard Douglas filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana against K&L Real Estate and Khanh Bui alleging breach of lease.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on June 1, 2011, they entered into a lease agreement with defendants for the commercial lease of property. The suit states the lease granted four months of free rent for a construction grace period. The plaintiffs allege they made $366,106.11 worth of repairs on the building. The plaintiffs hold K&L Real Estate and Khanh Bui responsible because the defendants allegedly refused to pay the structural repairs and failed to honor the lease agreements.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, jointly and in solido, in a full sum that are reasonable in the premises, plus interest and all costs of this proceedings. Douglas is representing the plaintiffs.
