    Default During an Eviction of Old Tenant is New Tenant Responsible for Rent

    My question involves an eviction in the state of: WI

    I had signed a commercial lease with a commencement date of Dec. 1st and the old tenants have not moved out of a portion of the building. The eviction proceeding have been started, but the court date isn't for another month. The Landlord is claiming that I must still pay rent because I can access most of the building. Doesn't he have an obligation to deliver the entire premise to me, before I have to pay rent?

    Are you actually using ANY part of the space at this point?

    We have not even accepted the keys. We did pay Dec. rent because we didn't know the previous tenants would stay, but because the hearing isn't until Feb 4th, we don't want to pay Jan and Feb. if we don't have access to the whole building?
