WEBSTER SPRINGS – A Webster County landlord is suing a tenant for allegedly canceling a lease without proper notice.
Jeffrey C. Wiles, William Talbott and Cowen Auto Parts (doing business as WBC Enterprises) filed a lawsuit April 26 in Webster Circuit Court against Work4WV-Region 1 Inc.
According to the complaint, the parties signed a lease on May 21, 2013, wherein Work4WV leased part of the plaintiff’s business building on North Court Square in Webster Springs. Cowen Auto Parts made building modifications for Work4WV to inhabit the building, the suit says, and the lease was supposed to automatically renew on June 1 of each fiscal year. However, when the defendant decided to end the agreement, the plaintiff says, the defendant sent an e-mail rather than sending written notice through agreed upon channels.
The plaintiffs request an extension of the lease until June 1, 2016, as well as all rent amounts owed. They are represented by attorney Howard J. Blyler of Howard J. Blyler Attorney at Law in Cowen.
Judge Jack Alsop is assigned to the case.
