FRESNO — A Fresno property owner is suing an office tenant, alleging breach of contract and breach of lease agreement in failing to pay more than $76,000.
Milner Klein Realty Company filed a complaint Oct. 18 in Fresno County Superior Court against Edward B. Chatoian and Does 1-25, alleging the lessee breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 24, 2016, Milner Klein Realty suffered financial damages as a result of Chatoian's failure to pay off a promissory note that was supposed to cover past due rent in the amount of $27,745. However, the suit says, the defendants have failed to perform its obligations under the note, with an outstanding balance accrued of $76,832.18.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants have failed to fulfill their obligations under the lease agreement and promissory note, and have received the benefit of the use of Milner Klein's property at 2607 Fresno St., without paying dues to the expense and detriment of the plaintiff.
Milner Klein Realty seeks trial by jury, judgment of at least $76,832.18, interest, costs of suit, attorney fees and all relief the court deems just. It is represented by attorney David M. Gilmore of Gilmore Magness Janisse in Fresno.
