If the APR (annual percentage rate) is 169.88%, that would be illegal, but I am guessing that the 169.88% figure you gave is not the APR. Do you mean the total you would pay in principal and interest ends up being 169.88% of $3,500? If so, the APR would be slightly under 29%. You can calculate...Read more »
Hello. It is really going to depend on the exact wording of the contract, specifically as to dates and time for completion. You should set up a free consultation with a contract attorney, have them go over the wording of the contract, and tell you what your options are. My firm provides such...Read more »
I am in City of Miami (Miami-Dade), FL, renting one unit in a duplex home & have had issues with my landlord and he's not willing to let me out of the lease without paying an early termination fee or liquidated damages, I'm willing to provide 60 days notice and he's likely to get... Read more »
Hello! It is difficult to give a good answer to your question without reviewing the lease and addendum. You should consult with a landlord tenant attorney in Miami. The attorney will need to review the exact wording of the lease and addendum agreements in order to give you advise as to your options.
I have a dispute with a builder over a $28,000 pole barn. He did not meet the specifications in the contract. I had them cease construction and withheld final payment. I don't know what type of lawyer I need or how I go about finding one. Any help or information is greatly appreciated. I... Read more »
Operational can you sue the storage facility for not providing security to the premises as part of their advertisement Numerous units broken in and locks were all purchased through the storage facility. Location Orlando, FL and renters insurance only covers $1000
An advertisement is just that. Your contract is what's important. You have to determine whether the facility has a contractual obligation to provide security.

If the developer chooses not to mail the report, and not to publish it in a publication regularly distributed within the subdivision, can they "limit" the amount of time the report is "posted"? I requested a copy of last years report, but was told that was not possible because... Read more »
The statute doesn't provide a time period it has to be posted and only provides it has to be posted within 60 days of the end of the fiscal year. Don't confuse this with Section 720.303(7), which requires a HOA to either mail you a copy or send you a notice it is available upon request....Read more »

I also had to pay rent for this month even if i have not been living in my apartment for the last 4 days. I want to know if I can break my lease without penalty. I was told by the landlord I had to pay rent and cannot break my lease before it’s date.
No one can answer that in this online forum. It requires a review of your purchase agreement. You will need to hire a real estate lawyer to review it. Honestly, you should not purchase real estate without one.
I want to be sure I’m protected if the buyer defaults, or fails to maintain the business. The business is a franchised restaurant so there standards that need to be maintained. If the agreement includes a down payment, would I retain it as well?
There is always some level of risk involved in every business transaction. Providing owner financing and the nature of the franchise relationship will need to be taken into account. You can't eliminate risk, but you can manage risk by contemplating these issues in an asset purchase...Read more »
Interesting question. If the contract says it can be executed in counterparts it can be signed on separate documents. Probably would be valid if executed like that even without specifically so stating. Technically, each of the signed originals in full when placed together would be the original. If...Read more »
This is not enough information to accurately respond. But in general, it would depend on a number of factors, such as whether this is an "as is" deal, whether there is a mortgage contingency and whether that expired, etc. Also, are there conditions in the home which the seller was...Read more »
Assuming that the lienholder has a valid financial grievance against you, like for not paying your obligations to them as you agreed, the answer is yes. Lienholders do not have to wait for someone else to initiate repossession proceedings to protect their liens.
I mailed my right of recession letter in June. I called and spoke to the company after they took my car and they said the letter isn’t valid. The letter was indeed valid and now they refuse to give me my remedies, and downpayment because they took my car back.
A right of rescission is generally limited to door-to-door sales and refinancing of mortgages, not cars. Dealerships are not going to let you drive their cars for three days, put mileage on the vehicle and then take it back. Unless there was a clause in your contract giving you this right, any...Read more »
My doctor has been seeing me for many years. He first started seeing me under medicaid. He decided to stop accepting medicaid. He continued seeing me now for years as a cash patient. I was informed he wasn't allowed to if I was on medicaid. At first he had us signed a form that I was paying... Read more »
Your question begs the question, didn't you know you could stop going to that doctor and simply choose another one who's in your Medicaid plan network, so that you would not have to pay a dime? If you did not know that, why not? Did your doctor somehow mislead you into believing you...Read more »
