Phibol's right to the land no longer stood under my reign, due to the fact that his contract has been voided under his own actions.
II. Land is taxed based upon the contents of the contract. However, one thing remains the same no matter the stipulated monthly fees. If a leaser goes three dwarven months without paying their monthly taxes, the land will be re-seized by Troll's Bane. Every attempt will be made by the town to contact the leaser to secure the taxes.
III. Leasers of land have few rights in terms of "re-leasing" the land or making sub-leases to other interested parties. Of course, with the consent of the Governor, land and buildings may be rented, but not sold or leased.
He went nearly five dwarven months without paying, which surely made his contract void. Seeing as how Joxia's reign was built on power grabbing, and pitifully only lasted a few months with no real intent of actually changing the laws to benefit the citizens, her makeshift contract shouldn't stand.
At this time the taxes will be waived in exchange for the temporary rental of the old Cromwell house to the Archduchess. When the Archduchess vacates the house the taxes will be reinstated.
They both signify their agreement to these terms and are bound by their signatures below.
Also this technically makes you Baron of Northbridge. You are obligated to attend council meetings of Trolls Bane and swear your loyalty to the town, its people, and its government.
Archduchess of Trolls Bane
~*~Lady Joxia Doral~*~
She waived the taxes in exchange for personal property, which is against the very essentials of Governing itself. The land isn't the leader's bargaining tool for personal gain, it is a source of income for the town of Troll's Bane. Due to this, I would hope that the current Mayor of Troll's Bane would take a look over the case, considering the fact that Joxia's actions in the matter were selfish and unbecoming of a true leader. Hellbriar, I'd even go as far as calling that outright corrupt. I'd also expect him to look over my laws I made in the past, which Mister Phibol clearly broke twice, and come to the conclusion that he voided the original contract.
He'll surely have my support in the matter.
