I am a tenant withba commercial lease, and in the process of operating a daycare. However, there has been a lot of back an forth with my landlord and I. Yesterday when I went to the daycare I found that the locks had been changed and I wasn't notified at all. I have not done anything to violate my lease, and I'm unsure of what to do.

Sorry I can't give you legal advice. You need to consult a lawyer, bringing with you your lease and any documents that go with it, and any correspondence you have had with your landlord about your or his issues.
Changing locks is generally not permitted, so a lawyer should be able to help you deal with that and resolving the other issues.
THIS RESPONSE IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE, SINCE I DO NOT HAVE ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT WOULD BE REQUIRED, AND I DO NOT HAVE A REPRESENTATION AGREEMENT WITH YOU.
* If the answers to your question confirm that you have a valid issue or worthwhile claim, your next step should almost always be to establish a dialog with a lawyer who can provide specific advice to you. Contact a lawyer in your county or township.
* Another reason for contacting a lawyer is that it is often impossible to give a good answer in the Internet Q&A format without having more information. The unique circumstances of your situation and things that you may not have thought to mention in your question may completely change the answer. If you want to be sure that you have a complete answer to your question and an understanding of what that answer means, establish a connection with a lawyer who practices in the area of your concern.
