Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in South Carolina


We own a building that we lease to a gentleman. The man uses the building as a bar, and we have asked to see his proof of insurance, but he will not show it to us. If he doesn't have insurance, and something happens to a bar patron, would the liability be on us, as the owners of the building?

Re: liability

Your lease should ABSOLUTELY require this.

You are right to be very concerned.

Premises liability would be a major issue.

You should also have a Hold Harmless and Indemnification clause in your Lease.

Hopefully the building is owned by a Corp or LLC owned by you, and NOT you personally.

Call or email for assistance.
