We cannot offer direct legal advice to you because we don't serve as your legal counsel and have not interviewed you in person, reviewed your paperwork or all of the statutory and case law in South Carolina.


Generally, there may be limited prohibitions, but it all depends on what your lease agreement states.  Your best bet is to consult with a business landlord tenant attorney at and check his or her record at the South Carolina State Bar.
