One problem with tenants is that they sometimes leave the premises before their lease is up. They might do so because their business is such a success that they need more square footage, but often they break the lease because their business is failing and they have run out of money.
A lot of questions surround defamation, particularly about how it applies to businesses. It a nutshell, defamation is communication with the intent to damage another individual’s or entity’s reputation.

There are two types of defamation–libel is defamation in the written form and slander is defamation in the spoken form.
