    I did not pay full rent under a commercial lease for 3 months, but I keep paying some money. Can the owner lock my shop without going to court under commercial law?

    Hi @Mattt,
    1. To clarify, has the landlord/owner threatened to lock you out of your shop or actually locked you out of your shop?
    2. Do you have a written lease agreement? If yes, what does your lease agreement say in relation to payments?
    3. Had you agreed to part-payment of rent for a period of time?
