If you live in the United States and if you have been deceived by a Northern Leasing Systems Company, you can seek compensation through class action lawsuit. In order to understand more about this type of lawsuit, it is imperative to first know more about how it works. As mentioned earlier, there are two types of leases: retail and industrial. Retail leases deal with properties that fall under the purview of retail operations while industrial leases deal with properties that fall under the purview of industrial operations.
Under the terms of a retail lease, the plaintiff will be paid a fee for signing the agreement. If the lease is for an industrial lien, the fee will be paid directly to the defendant. Upon signing the lease or agreement, the plaintiff is considered an “inbreeder” of the property that falls under the purview of the agreement. It is important to note that if the defendant fails to honor the obligations set forth in the agreement, the plaintiff can file a lawsuit against them under the Commercial Real Estate Disputes Act. The Commercial Real Estate Disputes Act covers any disputes with regards to the lease, the structure of the lease, the location of the lease and the terms of the lease.
Now that you know what a lease takeover is, you should understand how it is handled in class action lawsuits. One of the first things that happens in any lawsuit is that a plaintiff and a defendant both submit their claims against each other. There is a discovery phase, wherein both sides are expected to turn over relevant documents that pertain to the case in question. The defendant’s discovery process usually involves turning over correspondences relating to the lease agreement. There is a final hearing in which either party can present their arguments and evidence regarding the claim. If the plaintiff wins the case, the defendant is required to pay the plaintiff, called the judgment debtor, who is awarded money damages.
On the flip side of this, there is also a defendant who is sued. The plaintiff’s lawsuit would name the defendant as a defendant. The defendant’s lawsuit will involve turning over records and correspondences that pertain to the lease agreement. If the plaintiff wins, the defendant is also required to pay the plaintiff. This is referred to as the award. However, the defendant has the right to defend against the lawsuit.
In any Northern Leasing Systems Class Action Lawsuit, the defendant will most likely be ordered to pay all the monies awarded as well as any additional costs that arise out of the suit. These claims will cover the lease takeover, the property lease agreement, the lease itself and any personal injuries that resulted from the lease. However, the defendant can challenge the validity of the claim if it can show that the plaintiff’s complaint falls under a valid legal theory.
It should be kept in mind that this type of lawsuit is a class action. Class actions allow people who are similarly situated to join together for a mutual benefit. If the defendant doesn’t agree to the class action, the plaintiff cannot proceed with the lawsuit. There are different laws that apply in different states. In the state of California for example, leases under certain circumstances are deemed to be “consolidated contracts.”
