QUEBEC, Montreal – Parkway Pontiac Buick, a top-performing General Motors-Canada dealership fighting termination, filed a lawsuit last Wednesday against an underperforming rival that was allowed by GM to take over Parkway’s 120-vehicle inventory after shutting it down.
Plaza Chevrolet Hummer Cadillac is a tenant of HTH Realties, Inc., Parkway’s property leasing firm, that shares the same premises with Parkway Pontiac. The lawsuit alleges that Plaza breached its lease agreement by selling Hondas out of its GM dealership through a third-party company, a clear violation of its leasing contract. It also states that as an exclusive GM dealership, Plaza cannot sell and/or lease motor vehicles of manufacturers other than GM on leased premises.
Another allegation of the legal action is that Plaza Chevrolet is also in default by its non-compliance to environmental laws and ordinances, refusing to submit documentation that it is in compliance with the Environment Quality Act and other legislation. While HTH Realties observed that Plaza’s underground oil tanks were being emptied by a company called Safety Clean, the landlord claims that no security fence had been placed around the open pit, which is another violation of Plaza’s lease.
HTH Realties is seeking rescission of the property lease, plus damages and interest.
