Schedule a consultation with a lawyer in your area handling breach of contract matters. The lawyer can start with a demand letter, then file suit if necessary. You didn't say when the loan re-payment was due. You probably have a limit of 5 years from that due date to file suit. If the... View More

Unfortunately, this does happen. The storage facility will charge storage and unless you got the promise that there were not going to be storage charges in writing it will not be binding.

Q: Suing for money owed, but unsure of defendant's address. If he is pulled for traffic violation, will that summons show?

Address may not be current, therefore summons may not be possible. If the defendant is pulled for a traffic violation or other reason, will the fact that he is being summoned show up in the officer's inquiry of the driver's license?

In Florida, civil summons do not appear on person's driving record in the same way as an arrest warrant. The person who is bringing a civil action is largely responsible for serving the summons themself.
