i rented a commercial property and did $35,000.00 worth of improvements and put in metal cabinets in the kitchen area. ($2000.00 worth.)
i have since moved and took the cabinets with me as there were none when i moved in.
The leaser has contacted me about the cabinets and wants them put back. I contend they are mine as I have receipts for them and the building was completely bare when i rented it and now has walls and doors that I paid to put in.
I do have pictures of the building on the date of rental to prove the non-existence of walls and cabinets of any kind in the building on that date.
The only thing in the building at the time of rental was a non suctioning toilet and a bathtub that leaked. there was not even a kitchen area at that point in time in this industrial building.
In fact the upstairs rooms were not even safely nor properly supported which I have pictures of also. do the cabinets need to be returned?
