BELLEVILLE – A corporate landlord is suing a laundry business for allegedly failing to pay rent.
Lincoln Place Land Trust and Concord Management filed the lawsuit Feb. 16 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Apple Cleaners, alleging breach of contract.
Lincoln Place is the landlord of a retail space known as Lincoln Centre in Fairview Heights, and on Nov. 25, 2002, a lease agreement was entered into by the parties and the defendant agreed to a fixed monthly lease cost, according to the complaint.
However, the suit alleges, Apple Cleaners has failed to pay rent in the manner outlined in the contract and the plaintiff has lost sums of money.
Lincoln Place Land Trust and Concord Management seek more than $50,000 for rent owed, cost of returning the premises to its original state to maximize marketability, attorney fees and court costs as called for in the contract. They are represented by attorney Grey Chatham Jr. of Chatham & Baricevic in Belleville.
