    Hi,

    I have a commercial lease. In the agreement to lease dated June 2011, it states that we shall provide a $20 cash bond to the landlord. In the Lease dated Jan 2012 (once the building was finished), it states that the bond should be applied to the first three months of the lease. The landlord claims that this was never the intention and holds the cash as a bond.

    Am I entitled to have this "bond" applied to my rent payments?

    If that's what the landlord signed in the agreement, then that is what he is bound by.
