Can my landlord turn my heat off?
They included paying for heat during normal business hours, you need safe industrial heaters and pay for the electricity on your own. The temp can actually be controlled in another state for all you know. CVS stores in the west, thier temp is controlled in like ILLinoise. Get the space heaters dress warmer, and leave all the lights on all nght long, lights equal heat.

This is not an residential landlord tenant situation, this is a commercial lease. Commercial leases are based on contract law, so it all depends on what is (or is not) stated in your contract.

Go to Court, file a complaint against the Landlord immediately for illegally turning off the heat source. It is against the law. Period. First send them a certified letter stating that you must have access to the unit within 24 hours. If he does not comply, get a court order. The law is on your side. They have no option but to make sure you have heat. OR...break the lease, sue them for the whole lease, punitive damages and court costs as well as cost to you for rental of new property. Does not matter what state you are in. Water and Heat cannot be turned off by the landlord. PS. Heat regulations require that thermo be turned down in non-business hours to avoid freezing pipes. If your business hours are different than the next door, the landlord can purchase a thermo imputing your hours in and out along with other tenant. Cost is about $150 to the landlord.
