Maitland, FL (PRWEB) September 21, 2013
Keller Road, LLC, owner of a sustainably designed and award winning Green commercial office building located at 429 South Keller Road, Orlando, Florida, filed suit on August 30th against Stonehenge Telecom Holdings, Inc., Stonehenge Telecom, Inc., Stonehenge Mobile Services, Inc., Abex Capital, Inc., and Abex Group, Inc., all of which are run by Patrick Willemsen.
The suit alleges breach of agreement related to the failure to pay rent pursuant to a lease that does not expire until January 16, 2014. The lawsuit alleges past due rent of $15,037.38, plus accelerated rent due of $67,668.21, as well as attorney's fees and costs. It is alleged that the companies operated by Willemsen went into default in July by failing to timely pay the rent due, failed to pay their rent for August in the amount of $15,037.38, and then abruptly vacated the premises on August 27, 2013, without notice to the landlord and without any effort being put forth to satisfy their obligations.
Patrick Willemsen, originally from the Netherlands, is the CEO of Stonehenge Holdings, president of Stonehenge Telecom, president of Stonehenge Mobile, president of Abex Capital, and CEO of Abex Group.
It is alleged that the identified business entities are effectively alter egos of Patrick Willemsen. It is also asserted that Willemsen operated each of the businesses he ran from under the same roof at the leased premises, and not for economic or efficiency purposes. Rather, it is alleged that one or more companies acted as a façade for Willemsen in harming Keller Road, LLC, which is precisely the type of injustice the alter-ego liability doctrine intends to prevent.
The Consulate for the Netherlands also occupied the property under Willemsen as he serves as Honorary Consul of the Netherlands. “It was certainly disappointing the way that Mr. Willemsen and his companies handled their obligations. They just loaded up a truck and moved to 1101 North Lake Destiny Road in Maitland. I hope their next landlord is treated differently,” said Ray Scott, one of the principals of Keller Road, LLC, and the architect who designed the award winning, environmentally conscious Green office building.
