My question involves an eviction in the Philippines, their laws are modeled after US laws:
Our Corporation has a Management Agreement on our beach front Resort with a local Management company. The Agreement prohibits sub-leases.
I visited the business and found a Dive shop with a different company's name had been moved in.
When I confronted the Management company representative about it, he explained that he was not collecting any rent from the Dive shop, so it was not a sub-lease (!?!?)
Our lease on the property prohibits us from having any sub-lease.
Is collection of rent required to constitute a sub-lease?
