We are moving to the country and will need it on the farm. The 90.00 you gave me I used to pay the insurance. What ever you... Read more »
Your question seems to be whether verbal agreement is enforceable. Any sale of goods over $500 should be in writing in order to be enforceable unless there was partial performance, i.e, you paid for or it was delivered. So you should take a step back and see if you or they have done something...Read more »
Sisco v. Rotenberg, 104 So.2d 365 (1958): we are in accord with the plaintiff in this case that if any distinction may have been made in any other court as to "renewal" or "extension" of a lease, this Court will not consider such distinction. As we agreed in Leibowitz v.... Read more »
Yes. Florida law requires all hotels, motels, B&Bs and all other kinds of large and small businesses that provide short-term living units to the public to collect and remit "tourist taxes." Many counties also imposes these kinds of taxes.
This morning was the third time my neighbors physical violence and fighting not only woke me in the middle of the morning, but they extend it to my doorstep throwing someone against it.

I friend of mine is being threatened with eviction for trespassing on an easement that belongs to the park and is there to allow access to another piece of land. On some maps and map apps it even shows as being a street.
Yes. If you pay rent on a monthly basis, the LL can terminate your lease with 15 days notice, unless your lease says otherwise. It doesn't matter if you work out of your home or how long you've lived there, or anything else. The LL doesn't have to give you a reason to terminate your lease.
Because of harassment, Insults, emotional damage etc from my rommate I decided to leave the premises by the end of july. We both and management agreed to a form that states that I will vacate the premises no later than July 31. It also says that I relinquish my rights to the deposit by signing. My... Read more »

Lease violation to have a guest more than 2 weeks. Guest was just released from prison... Read more »
You might be able to obtain an injunction against the criminal. His crimes have nothing to do with your landlord; constructive eviction is a cause of action between a tenant and the Landlord. You have no remedy to terminate your lease; you can leave at any time, but you will suffer negative...Read more »
I have 3 months left on my lease. My landlord is selling unit to someone I have never met and is saying I have to stay and complete the lease with this stranger. I want to move out before he closes. How can I be forced to stay in a contract with someone I never met?
Your lease transfers to the new owner at closing. You don't have a say in it. If you want to terminate the lease, you'll have to work it out with the new owner. Doing so will likely cost you way more than staying in the place until the lease terminates on its own, then moving to a new place.
It is a duplex and no where in my side is there any smoke detector or alarm of any kind. Plus there is a window missing. Windows aren't installed. Hole in the fireplace wall. No master lock on door that allows other tenant to use laundry room on opposite side. There is pest control issue that... Read more »
So, I know I'm in the wrong too, but I need to see the best way to go about this. I have outside cats and just move where the landlord doesn't want animals, but they are outside cats. For my own reasons, I didn't mention it and just need a week or so for them to get use to their new... Read more »
Sorry, but you probably violated your lease (which we cannot review here online), requested service and now are upset the landlord found out you have cats in his house. It is logical to check each AC vent when there is a complaint the AC is not working properly. A landlord in Florida has the...Read more »
Meantime, three neighbors who have the very same apt were only given an increase of $50, $86 & $100. Something is terribly wrong here. Why is there such a discrepancy between my lease and theirs? Why doesn't the same criteria apply to them? Have resided in the same community for 2 years in... Read more »
There is no Florida law that requires a landlord to rent similar apartments at the same exact rate. It sounds like the landlord is trying to equalize rates, which explains why some tenants had less of an increase than you did.
For example, since you have lived there for over two years, the...Read more »
We purchased a new construction home. Original closing was projected to line up with end of lease. Due to construction delays, our closing date has been delayed.

On a month to month, they can give you 15 days notice. They don't a reason to not extend you. It doesn't matter about how long you've there, what a great tenant you are, etc. etc. They want you out, probably because month to month leases are a pain to administer. Time to go. Get your...Read more »
I'm being sued for possession of property I live at with my deceased boyfriend for almost 5 years .Which overdosed May 5th.I responded and filed my answer now I was mailed Writ of possession and wonder how much longer do I have before I'm on the street?
Usually the judge will have addressed that issue. If not, and if you have an address for them, give them a written notice that if they don't pick up their stuff in so many days that you will dispose of it.
This is an excellent question that I come across weekly. I've helped many clients with this issue. Since the property is in a condo association, the pipe may be what is considered a "common element" or "common area" pipe. If the plumber has determined that the pipe services...Read more »
