HUNTINGTON – A couple are suing Co-Ex Plastics Tooling Inc. for allegedly refusing to vacate their property after its lease expired.
David F. Meadows and Lavern H. Meadows and the defendant entered into a lease agreement in 1995, according to a complaint filed March 13 in Cabell Circuit Court.
The plaintiffs claim the lease expired and the defendant became a holdover tenant, and they advised Co-Ex through a letter dated Nov. 27 that it was to vacate the property by Dec. 31 or a monthly rental payment of $5,000 would be imposed beginning Jan. 1.
On Jan. 15, the defendant was advised that payment for the month of January had not been forthcoming and as such, Co-Ex was placed on notice to remove its property from the premises no later than Feb. 28 and that the monthly rental payment would continue until Co-Ex vacated the premises, according to the suit.
The plaintiffs claim Co-Ex has failed to vacate the property and has failed to pay rental payments.
Co-Ex has no lawful right to remain on the premises and must remove all of its personal property and restore the premises to its original condition, according to the suit.
The plaintiffs are seeking compensatory damages. They are being represented by Ronald J. Flora of Ronald J. Flora Law Office.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
