You agreed to the firearms prohibition when you signed the Lease. Then, you had a weapon shipped to you. The fact that is legal to ship that item to any home address has nothing to do with the fact that the item is prohibited by contract anywhere on the premises, including your apartment.
I declared bankruptcy in 2016. I received a ledger from Lazega & Johanson, a collection law firm, very away after receiving my bankruptcy discharge. It stated that I owed them an absurd sum in association dues, which included fees and interest.
I discovered after looking at the charges... Read more »
You can perceive anything you like, but what you have is a basic dispute over money. You claim you are paid up, the association claims that you are not. If you can prove that you paid the assessments on time that the HOA claims you did not, that would be a pretty good defense to the foreclosure...Read more »

I've been here for 5 years and he has never asked if I needed or wanted a paint job on the inside. I pay a lot of money to live here and would like it done. Is it legal to make me pay the first 250 for a repair?
You don't. You make a motion to dismiss the case, stating your reasons. You file the original with the clerk of the court and send a copy to the plaintiff or its attorney. As to the summons - if the summons was delivered to a person authorized by law to accept it at your residence (as an...Read more »
So basically I owe a psych ward a ton of money. I was sued for it. And now they are garnishing my entire bank account. I have been trying to get ahold of the lawyer company to hopefully negotiate to stop the garnishment but they won’t return my calls and their automated emails just tell me to... Read more »
I dont know about his law firm, but if I had a garnishment in place I wouldn't negotiate with you. Why would I? The lawyer's client is the creditor, not you. You can always retain an attorney to make certain that the plaintiff's attorney has followed the garnishment statute.
The business I am suing is an LLC and is also franchised. This will be a small claims case in the state of Florida. For the business I am suing, there is a principal address listed, a mailing address listed and also a registered agent name and address listed. Which of these addresses should receive... Read more »
Statements stopped when the account charged off. The garnishments are applied to the judgment; the law firm handling the garnishment keeps the balance and will give you a balance on occasion. They will not send you a monthly statement.
It depends. First, this was not a conference call. A conference call is between clients and vendors, partners, etc. This was a court hearing of some kind. It may have been a motion hearing, a status conference, a case management conference, a final hearing, etc. (details matter)
I owned an LLC that sold flooring for a company from 2011 thru 2014. I told the owner I was starting another LLC and would not be working for them full time, but I would still help them. The owner was very rude and threatened to sue me for jobs they installed for me. I could not afford a lawsuit so... Read more »
Well, did you get a letter or were you served a complaint? There's a big difference; if it's just a letter then you haven't been sued. In anybevent, hire a lawyer. Defending a lawsuit isn't as easy as saying "I don't owe him any money".
They don’t show up on time, they are to clean for 2 and a half hours. You are lucky if they are there 2 hours. I had one girl there for 45 minutes. We have a doorbell that times people when they are coming and going which is on our cell phones.
I have been making monthly payments since June of 2020. Never missed a payment. Now they are suing me because my payments aren’t high enough. They said I have to agree to an amount I can’t afford or take my chances in court and hung up on me.
Yes. You can't just send a payment amount that you can afford without an agreement that your payments are acceptable. Suppose your debt is $10,000.00 and you are making monthly payments of $20.00 without an agreement that the at $20.00 is acceptable.

I'm a tenant living in an apartment complex in Florida, I wish to break my lease early (It ends in December 2022) due to black mold in and around the air vents. I've made several calls to the complex starting in mid July and nothing has been done about it other than a 30 second visit at... Read more »
Just seeing "black mold" around the air vents is not enough to terminate your lease without penalty. To break your lease, you'd have to, as a minimum, have a state certified mold inspector inspect and find that the mold that's there is toxic. There are molds that are not toxic,...Read more »
