Hi; We own a company that runs a ball hockey league and are leasing property from a land holder. For the last 5 years, the business relationship has been good. We are currently in a lease and are coming up to the due date for renewal. We are having a problem with the property owner in that he his not renewing our lease. He says he is willing to, but we have been unable to get him to sign it. We have had a meeting were he verbally agreed (with a hand shake) with conditions which were accepted by both parties. An email was sent to him with the details of the agreement and he sent a reply in agreement, but he will not sign the lease renewal now. To move will cost money and we believe he is trying to push us out and buy the business. Does anybody know if a verbal agreement (with a handshake) with email confirmation is legal ground for a lease renewal?
