When I joined the gym they told me it was a month to month thing and not a year long contract. In fact I was told that this specifically was not a contract. I was not shown a contract nor did I receive a copy of anything. In January I stopped attending the gym and didn't update my payment... Read more »
My partner who I have recently had a disagreement, recently registered the business for 2020 but I am not listed (I was listed in 2019 as a owner/mgr). What is the legal significance of not being listed on the business as I am a 49% partner?
Do you have a partnership agreement? Typically, that is going to control over what is on Sunbiz (I am guessing that is what you are referring to). Also, if there was not a written partnership agreement, it defaults to the Florida Revised Uniform Partnership Act. I would suggest that you have them...Read more »
Although I have never heard of doing anything like you are thinking about trying, I suppose you could wait until the decedent's family opens a probate case (if they do) and then file a claim against the probate estate for the remaining portion of rent the decedent cannot pay. However, you are...Read more »
I purchased a leased vehicle for my grand daughters mom. I wrote an extensive email agreement and had her to accept the terms. Is our email agreement enforceable? Also, I was the primary on the loan, but she was added as the primary driver because I lived in VA and she was in FL. She started... Read more »
I sold a purebred puppy on co-own to someone, with the verbal agreement that I get pick puppy from the first litter. After that, I would sign full ownership over to her. She has now “forgotten” that we had the agreement, now that the dog has her first litter and is refusing to give me my pick... Read more »
Sure, many attorneys can help you with, and represent you on. a breach of contract matter, which is what you have, but in your case, you'd likely have to pay an attorney FAR more than the monetary value of the pup you were supposed to receive. If the person who breached the agreement won't...Read more »
satisfied. Well they had to redo shoddy work after I complained, started work and disappeared for 3 weeks, tracked dirt into home(no shoe covers are mentioned in contract), left scrap lying around and several other things such as me missing work without pay for appt. they never kept. If they refuse... Read more »
For sure. There are perhaps 10,000 or more Florida lawyers who have lots of experience in dealing with over-bearing HOAs--which IMO are collectively a huge cause of unnecessary anger, angst and aggravation in our little part of the world.
I am leasing a residential property from a company. Someone made a complaint to the county that i am subletting. The county said i have seven days to fix the issue. I don't have anyone else living there. I receive no rent and all bills are in my name. I have friends stay the night often. How am i... Read more »
You post is vague as to whether you were issued a code enforcement citation with a fine and/or notice of hearing, or instead just some kind of warning, without any legal consequences at the moment. If you were issued a citation, immediately consult an attorney - meaning call a law office and...Read more »
Hello I recently placed a deposit and 4 months for a place and was to receive the keys but says they couldn't get in contact with me and headed back to the owner because she fell ill.(Did not receive phone call, text, nor email.) Then the owner dies the next morning. (Dealing with the nephew this... Read more »
I was subcontracted for some IT work. I signed a contract and my billable hrs were below that max amount of billable hrs. I provided a weekly summary of the work I did and hrs worked. Everything went well until payment was due. The first excuse was they didn't approve my proposal which later... Read more »
Your options are to hire an attorney to send a demand letter, then take legal action if that fails, or just jump right to the legal action. I usually recommend starting with a demand letter. Your inquiry is vague about the contract saying "no court", but I'm guessing you mean the contract has an...Read more »
Michigan residents are ordered to shelter in place. Florida has closed many beaches including Indian rock beach which is where this condo is located. Florida is also asking visitors to shelter in place for two weeks upon arrival.
Rather than try to find--and pay--a lawyer to help you do the impossible I strongly suggest that you voluntarily offer to delay your arrival until some future date--after the Corona Virus is history--in return for a full credit voucher for another identical vacation at the same destination. A bird...Read more »
Im an American living in Germany and do not plan to return to the states. I signed a contract with a company out of Florida regarding medical consulting in relations to a claim with the Veterans Administration (Im a vet). The company did not do as advertised and thus we are in a dispute over... Read more »
Of course you can be sued. The creditor will have to jump thru some hoops to get you served in Germany though. But regardless, once you are served, its just like you lived in the states. If the creditor obtained judgment, and wanted to enforce the judgment, it would have to go through a process to...Read more »
The lease states that payment by check is one of the accepted payments methods. The office states they are no longer accepting payment by check, citing concerns over Coronavirus. However, they are open by appointment to show you "in person" how to work the online payment system (where you must... Read more »
If your lease states that you are allowed to pay by check then the landlord must accept checks. However, there is really nothing you can do except pay a lawyer a bunch of money to sue the landlord--but what are your damages? Zero.
We are a small CBC in Florida and have recently had a long standing customer decide to terminate a contract that was in their opinion taking to long to complete. At their request we made changes to the construction documents specifications about locations and layout to the MEP's of the building.... Read more »
Construction contracts are often very complex. There are so many different ways they can be drafted, it is impossible to answer your question without reviewing the contract. Many construction contracts have what is called "Termination for Convenience" which essentially means the other side can...Read more »
Hello, I’m suppose to have my baby shower at the banquet hall in three weeks but the government is shutting down all events for 30 days. I am already 7 and a half months pregnant and is unable to reschedule my event. Can the banquet hall keep my money even thought this is out of my control?
Before worrying about possibly losing your deposit, I suggest you call them and try to work with the venue and re-schedule the baby shower; they are going to be needing your business after the 30 day hiatus.
Although this unusual situation is very hard to believe--most decent apartment complexes require renters insurance for everyone--there is no law prohibiting the requirement of renters insurance only for tenants with pets.
She wants to give her sister power of attorney, she has had some medical issues and wants to make sure there is care of kids if needed until 18. Does a standard poa hold up if her sister has custody to take care of kids if father comes along latter and try’s to challenge it? Mother has full... Read more »
The Florida court that granted your sister-in-law sole custody of her two minor children still has jurisdiction over all custody decisions involving the minor children. Translation: No POA will work. Your sister-in-law cannot just pass her children over to her sister--or to anyone else--without...Read more »
