I work on a boat located in Florida that has been in the same slip (A) location for 10 years with zero late payments or lease defaults. The new marina management wants to relocate our boat to a way less desirable slip (B) to put another new boat in our current slip. The "new boat" does not want to go to slip (B) for the same reason as us. They have given our boat a ultimatum of move to (B) or leave. Do we have any legal rights. I will write below the Relocation section of sublease.
RELOCATION OF SLIP: Landlord reserves the right to change slip assignments, as well as any access ways, parking and similar areas, as necessary at Landlords sole discretion for the efficient operation of the Marina, or for any other purposes. In the event of any such changes, Tenant shall receive a new slip as nearly comparable in location to Tenant's former slip as is available, or at another of marina management properties. In the event of such a change, Tenant may elect to terminate this Sublease, but only if Tenant so notifies Landlord in writing within ten days after the date the Landlord notifies Tenant of the slip change.
The way I interpret your lease, the answer is no. The marina management can move you to a new slip "and if you don't like it, you can leave." Other lawyers may have different opinions.
Just because I answer your question does not mean that I am your lawyer, or that you should take action based on my answer. I am not your lawyer. I can give you my best guess based on the facts as you present them in your question. Any questions that I ask in my response are rhetorical, which means that I do not want you to answer my questions.
The language quoted is clear and unequivocal. Move or leave.
