UK: Estate company sues Twitter over unpaid rent

The Crown Estate has sued Twitter for alleged unpaid rent for their London headquarters in the United Kingdom, according to the BBC.

The Estate, which manages the King’s property portfolio, filed a claim against Twitter in London’s High Court last week.

The alleged arrears, according to a BBC report yesterday, relate to office space near Piccadilly Circus in central London.

The allegation surfaced as the latest challenge facing Elon Musk, the world’s second richest man amid the cutting of the firm’s global workforce of around 7,000.

Legal action has been taken by the Estate after previously contacting Twitter about rental arrears over office space at Air Street.

The Estate is one of the UK’s largest landowners and an independent commercial business, generating profit for the Treasury for public spending.
