PHILADELPHIA – A commercial property owner has filed suit against a law firm which rented space in its Philadelphia building, but allegedly defaulted on the accompanying payments.
On April 11, American Executive Centers, Inc. (corporately) of Malvern filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas versus Kraemer Manes & Associates of Pittsburgh.
On Dec. 22, 2016, the parties entered into a written contract for the lease of office space at AEC’s Philadelphia location – with a first addendum to the lease executed eight months later on Aug. 22, 2017, and its terms called for the defendant to pay certain security deposits, rent, additional rent and service charges.
The suit states beginning in December 2017 and continuing until the present, the defendant defaulted on its payment obligations for a total amount of $26,283.24. This, in addition to additional collection expenses of $3,942.49. But despite demand, the plaintiff says the defendant has not reconciled and refused to pay the outstanding costs.
For a count of breach of contract (or in the alternative, unjust enrichment), the plaintiff is seeking damages not in excess of $30,224.73, plus interest, costs, attorney’s fees and other relief as the Court deems just and proper.
The plaintiff is represented by Scott R. Reidenbach and Brian M. Marriott of Reidenbach & Associates, in Wayne.
