A property holding company is suing a failed business owner for defaulting on rent.

Mars Asset Holdings and Property Investments LLC, of 1625 College St. in Beaumont,  filed a lawsuit Jan. 29 in the Jefferson County District Court against Esther E. Archuleta, individually, and doing business as Magic Fiesta, citing she failed to pay rent owned for her business space.

The suit states Archuleta signed a lease with Mars Asset Holdings, agreeing to pay monthly rent of $1,850 a month from September 2013 through September 2016. After that, she was to pay $2,030 a month through September 2018.

Archuleta only paid her first two rent payments and has since moved out of the space, according to the complaint.

Mars Asset Holdings is seeking $111,620 in owed rent, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest and court costs.

It is represented by John Pat Parsons of Lindsay, Lindsay & Parsons in Beaumont.
