Escape room owners sue landlord in Delaware County for allegedly breaching lease

By Philip Gonzales | Jan 15, 2019

MEDIA — A Delaware couple are suing Timothy Martin and Real Property Management Tri-State Area, citing alleged breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.

Joseph and Lynn Flicker filed a complaint on Jan. 2 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants, alleging they negligently misrepresented that all certifications and permits were in place.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on March 31, 2017, Joseph and Lynn Flicker contracted defendants to lease their premises and to operate Clues to the Keys Escape Room for $1,000 per month. 

In or about the end of September 2017, a local zoning officer advised them to cease operating their business because it did not have the appropriate certifications and permits, the suit says. 

They were caused to sustain serious monetary damages and were forced to close their business, the suit says. The plaintiffs say the defendants failed to produce proper certification and/or permit for the use of the building for plaintiff's business.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages in the amount of no less than $50,000, with interest, costs, attorney's fees and expenses and such other just and fair relief. They are represented by Linell Lukesh of Reger Rizzo Darnall in Philadelphia.
