Originally the goal was to open new business under a new bus. name. Myself & my manager (ex fiancée)were becoming tenants as snack café on the property of the large hospital. Under my & my manager's direction new contract was forming, I was under the assumption that that contract did not go into effect (per my manager's words, as I haven't signed any documents). Well in fact it did (per my recent discovery), naming me as tenant for 3 years lease with all "signed paperwork". I was originally presented as face of the company with the hospital's employees & customers, also as a partner/owner at multiple meetings, so my face & name was well known. Shortly & coincidentally I got not well & arguments began happening around every corner. I was told verbally that my company's name was never anywhere legally. Continue building business, then to find out the new owner is his ex-wife. To make her un-identifiable she has changed her last name (no search system would pick it up), including company placed under new ridiculous name DBA.
How can I request copy of original contract, as parties involved (my ex, & the person who created contract & aware of misconduct) will not provide those to me.
For a lease to be enforceable for more than a year it has to be signed and notarized. If you designated your manager as an agent then they can sign for you.
You company operating agreement, articles of incorporation or by-laws should be the place to start looking for your rights and responsibilities.
