Learn this lesson well: If you were delinquent in your rent payments; and if you were informed by any means that the landlord was going to evict you; and if you ignored the threat of eviction; and if you made no effort to get current with the rent or move out; and if you have been doing anything at...Read more »
I have been combing through the definitions (790.001) and have not found anything that defines camping as hiking with an overnight stay. I have tried looking into the other state laws for definitions and hints for the better part of a week now (like TITLE XVIII PUBLIC LANDS AND PROPERTY) and have... Read more »
When a term is not defined in a statute, courts and administrative agencies use the ordinary dictionary definition. No, hiking is hiking and camping is camping.

What is it you want to know? If they sue you for damages, it will be a matter of your word against theirs. And, of course, they will have to prove that the property was damaged in that amount (normally decreased value of their real property). If it was merely dead trees and vines, it is...Read more »
There are several considerations for the attorneys who represent the injured person(s). Among those considerations, they will determine if the person who was driving the car also owned the car; or, did another person or entity own the car.

Most Florida lawyers are NOT from Puerto Rico and thus have no idea what the laws of Puerto Rico have to say about the obligations of children to be responsible for their elderly father. Search for a Florida lawyer who advertises their ability to practice in Puerto Rico.
What does this have to do with Florida? Is the property in Florida? If so, someone would have to be appointed by a Florida court as personal representative. If the "declaration of heirs" constitutes a will according to Florida law (without regard to where it was executed), and the decedent was a...Read more »

HOA by laws state they are responsible for commom elements and limited elements
Is our apts ceiling building material (undecorated drywall) considered one of these common elements? We do not have our own homeowners insurance so would like to have the Building insurance cover this. From... Read more »
The quoted portion of the by-laws is ambiguous. If I were representing the HOA's insurance carrier, I would argue that the word "undecorated" implies that the horizontal plane is the BOTTOM surface of the drywall (where the paint or other decoration would go). But if the mold comes from something...Read more »

You can do this via a quit claim deed. To make sure it gets done correctly you should go to a real estate transactional attorney. People try to do this themselves to avoid paying an attorney a couple of hundred dollars and end up making mistakes that cost thousands to fix.
I owe my child's mother back child support. I was paying her for years through Western Union and she wasn't reporting it.
