A: A difficult question to answer without more fact. I would, however, suggest, that since he accepted that answer and leased the premises to you would indicate that the answer was of no consequence then and remains so now. Briefly, it should not be considered as a basis for non-renewal now.

A: The question lacks some important information in order to give a definitive answer. However, I believe that the answer was of no consequence in the past. It can not be used as a basis for non-renewal now.
