ES Propco – 1100 West Mississippi Avenue LLC v. Brightway Roofing of Denver LLC; Huy (Denny) Nguyen; and John Thanh Nguyen
Plaintiff says in purchasing the property at 1100 W. Mississippi Ave. from John Nguyen on Feb. 19, 2021, for $1,933,000, ES Propco relied on the representation that Brightway Roofing, owned by John and Denny and the major tenant, was paying rent and would continue to operate as an ongoing company through the end of the term of the lease agreement, dated Oct. 31, 2018, for 3,900 square feet with a base rent of $7,000 per month. Plaintiff says the purchase price was based on this reliance, which proved to be false. Plaintiff says Brightway Roofing breached the agreement by vacating the property and not paying rent for the remainder of the term, which expires on Oct. 30, 2021, and seeks the balance of the rent payments of no less than $56,424.09, and judgment against John Thanh Nguyen and Huy “Denny” Nguyen, jointly and severally, for false representations, misrepresentations, and fraud in an amount proven at trial but not less than $70,912.
