Landlord moves to evict Loveland dermatology clinic in ongoing bankruptcy case

LOVELAND  — The owners of the Lake Loveland Dermatology PC clinic building are asking a federal court to let them evict the clinic as part of an ongoing bitter legal dispute and bankruptcy proceeding.

In filings submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of Colorado last week, the property owners for 776 W. Eisenhower Blvd. argued that the clinic missed the deadline to revert its current rent payments to what it was in 2016. The landlord company, led by former Lake Loveland Dermatology owner Dr. Patrick Lillis and his wife Tracy Amick, is asking the court to order the practice to vacate within seven days and to prevent it from claiming a protective stay.

The court previously gave Lake Loveland until Oct. 7 to decide whether to accept or refuse the lease as it currently stands.

Lake Loveland filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in March after buying the practice in 2016. Owner Kevin Mott, a dermatologist, sued former owner Lillis two months later, accusing him of inflating the business’ value when he sold it to Mott.

That suit also claims Lillis, who was Lake Loveland’s chief operating officer at the time, raised the rent on the building from $156,000 annually in 2011 to $307,000 in 2016 in a scheme to enrich himself and his wife. 

Mott previously asked the court to enforce the agreement at the 2011 rent price, which was denied.
