Cocoa Beach, FL asked in Consumer Law, Criminal Law, Family Law and Constitutional Law for Florida

Q: Hi I had a question about my rent during this time.

My landlord is doing some shady things I live in a apartment complex ran by a slumlord and I looked into the cares act and know that I cannot be evicted for the 120 day period due to the loan being federally backed, they also are legal not allowed to charge late fees to my understanding, or send any type of notice about eviction. My neighbor is receiving late fees and everyone has been sent an eviction notice signed and dated, legally to my understanding from what I have ready they are not even allowed to send that notice out, I believe they are trying to double dip perhaps by getting the government money and to get people to pay now when we were granted 120 days of grace period. Is this something worth going and speaking to my lawyer about?

A: From what you relate it could be possible that one or more of your neighbors have cause to seek legal assistance; but you state no facts about yourself, so I cannot answer.
