Local boutique, Faith Fashions, has been summoned to court for failing to pay US$8k rentals.
According to the summons, Faith Muchagona who runs Faith Fashions, entered into a lease agreement with Ridwan Adam to operate at no.14 Ottawa House, at the corner of Innez Terrace and Robson Manyika.
The two had agreed on a monthly rental of US$2 200 inclusive of all operating costs.
However, Adam claims Muchagona through her Faith Fashions has allegedly breached the lease agreement by failing to pay rentals in full from June 2020 to August 2021.
Part of the terms of the lease allowed that all rentals were to be made in advance or before the seventh of each month.
The outstanding amount due is US$8 012.
“Faith Fashions has breached the lease agreement in a material manner by failing to pay in full the monthly rentals for several months on the due dates for the period June 2020 to August 2021, to the extent that there is a total outstanding of US$8 012.
“As a result of Faith Fashions’ material breach of the lease agreement, Adam has cancelled the same and the
boutique continues in occupation of the premises.
“As such Adam claims holding over damages in the sum of US$73.33 per day from September 2021 to date of ejectment of Faith Fashions and all those claiming occupation through the boutique,” reads the summons.
As a relief, Adam wants ejectment of the fashion shop, full payment for the rentals and payment of holding over damages calculated at US$73.33 per day from September 1 to date of ejectment.
Faith Fashions is yet to respond.
