    correct preposition

    Hi,

    could you please tell me which preposition is correct in the following sentence:

    If the Lessee fails to do so immediately after receipt of the Lessor’s notice, the Lessor shall be entitled to remove the equipment for the Lessee/instead of the Lessee/on the Lessee’s behalf and the Lessee shall pay any costs and expenses incurred by the Lessor in this regard.

    Thanks a lot!

    Hanka

    Re: correct preposition

    I am not sure any is right. Presumably the Lessor is removing something from the Lessee as the Lessee has failed to keep to the terms of the agreement.

    If that is the case, then "on behalf of the Lessor" is what I would expect/

    Re: correct preposition

    The preceding sentence is:

    "The Lessee shall remove from the Premises any objects installed without the Lessor’s consent." And if he fails to do so, the Lessor may remove them himself (instead of the Lessee).

    Re: correct preposition

    Is it necessary to include the phrase? It actually reads more logically without it, since the preceding sentence tells you what is required.
