Commercial Rental Contaminated Drinking Water


I’m renting a space for my small business and February 25th I received notice that the drinking water in our facility had violated the requirements for safety. They stated that the design to install proper chlorination and storage would be completed spring/summer 2019. I’ve asked the landlord twice and called the company doing the install to get clarity on the situation and the dates, because as of today I’m getting no answers and see no progress towards the project even starting. Clean drinking water is a must for my business and is an integral part of a source I need to properly run. Should I be paying rent? I’m unsure where I stand legally with requesting alternative options for sources of clean drinking water and wanted to make sure I go down the correct path with my landlord.

Your leverage (or lack of leverage) will be determined by the language in your lease agreement. I recommend that you schedule a free case assessment with one of our attorneys to review the facts and your lease and possibly engage your landlord on your behalf.
