13 month lease states that either party must give 60 days notice of non-renewal. I was given notice today 31 days away from the end of lease that I need to move out on the last day. The lease states it automatically goes month to month. What are my options? 31 days is not enough time to for me to... Read more »

A tenant in the park has assaulted a group of children and was arrested. Come to find out he did the same thing last year to another group of children.

If my Landlord terminates my lease because of a lease violation ( though I do have proof that the accusation is false) will it hurt my credit? At this point I’m sick of my landlord and their management company and I want to get out.
It depends on the terms of the lease and the circumstances surrounding as to why you may want to terminate. Most standardized leases have an option that they can collect and attempt to recover damages as a result of the breach of the lease contract. However, it is possible that there are defenses...Read more »
What is the procedure now that the appeals court lifted the stay, does a new writ need to be issued, do I get re-served or am I basically going to have the sheriff come anytime now to throw my stuff out, I have movers scheduled day after tomorrow so I don’t need much time but wanted to know if I...

If the stay has been lifted, the original writ can now be enforced by the sheriff. No new writ has to issue or be served. The sheriff will show up when the landlord schedules the writ to be executed. It could be any day now that the stay is lifted.
There was a problem in our park on New Years where my husband was trying to break up a fight with some residents, those residents turned against us and made reports to management that just was not true. Now they are serving us with a non-renewal. We own our home but rent the lot. We feel... Read more »
Having been accused of violence in the course of breaking up a fight doesn't sound like discrimination on the basis of being in a suspect category (race, etc.). So, unless the mobile home park's agreement proves otherwise, they can get rid of you.
I dont know whether it's legal, but it's extremely inappropriate and if I were applying to rent and the prospective landlord asked me for my bank's user name and password, I'd immediately terminate the application and tell the landlord to take a long walk on a short pier.
Check the governing documents of your association. Presumably it was organized as a Florida corporation. Normally the laws provide for members calling for a meeting. And to my knowledge there was no emergency rule suspending the laws regarding such meetings; in any event it could have been done...Read more »
Florida: I have signed a renewal lease with my tenants for 6 months, ending in May2023. The condo is in HOA and they implemented rules, as follows: "No lease shall be for a period of less than six months. Units shall not be released more than once in any six-month period and rented once a... Read more »
That's impossible for any lawyer to answer without actually reading the whole document themselves. There could be other language that affects the meaning of this provision, including the definition of "released" and "rented." If you are going to be a landlord you need to...Read more »
"It was during an eviction" - this means that the sheriff was there to execute the writ of possession. What happened the day before is anyone's guess, but once the writ of possession is posted, the sheriff is going to come out on their schedule. The answer to your question is yes -...Read more »

Generally, you have to cooperate with your owner because its her property. Your lease may give specifics. The key is reasonableness. Even if its sold, the new owner takes subject to your lease; your lease doesn't end with the sale. However, if the new owner chooses to not offer you a new...Read more »
For example, if you received a three-day notice on a Tuesday, then the third day of the three-day notice would be Friday. So, can your landlord file for a notice of eviction on Friday, or must they file for eviction after Friday.
The day you are served the 3 day notice is day zero. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are not counted. So lets say the LL posts the eviction notice on Thursday. Day 1 is Friday. Day 2 is Monday. Day 3 is Tuesday. If you have not vacated the space or paid the rent by close of business on Tuesday,...Read more »
