No injuries and I paid the guest $300 and had it fixed within a couple hours. They said they are not suing. The guest is checking out early and wants $300 more because of what almost happened which was he was almost holding his daughter who was at the top of the stairs. Obviously no one expected...

We can’t afford a 2 bedroom but we keep getting told we can’t live in a studio because our 9month old apparently counts as another adult. We don’t know what to do because the two people per room is making it so we can’t find a place to live.
My tenant called me on February 24th to inform me they had been moved out of the premises since February 7th. I asked for the keys and they never gave them to me, so I changed the locks. Now, on March 15th, they have finally reached out to me saying they'll give me the keys. They paid me the... Read more »
From what you indicate (verbal notice on February 24, failure to enter premises since March 1, house empty, electricity off), it seems clear that they vacated the premises. You probably would have re-keyed anyway because they could have made duplicate keys, so that charge would depend on what the...Read more »
I don't think a lien under these circumstances would apply. Consult with an attorney about filing a small claims action against the homeowner. When you have filed suit, it might be possible to record a lis pendens on the property.
Generally, no. I have never seen a lease agreement that gives the landlord the ability to require their tenant to file a restraining order should the landlord desire them to. On the other hand, if you are on a month-to-month tenancy (no lease), the landlord can simply file a 15-day notice to...Read more »
What do I need to do? Am I responsible for paying the rent until the Franchisor has the lease assigned over to me? I have paperwork from the Franchisor saying that the assignment was done, but the Landlord says they did not assign it to my company, and “any contract stating otherwise was executed... Read more »
You can do the first two but the court is not likely going to remove the LLC from the case because it had an interest in the property at the time of the foreclosure and that interest needs to be foreclosed.
Without having a chance to read your entire lease I will tell you that there is a recognized difference between "garbage" and "trash." Garbage usually means all kinds of solid waste accumulated inside a dwelling, while "trash" usually means lawn clippings, dead...Read more »
In Florida, landlords must tell you if they want to keep some or all of your security deposit. If they plan on keeping some or all of it, they have to send you a notice by certified mail within 30 days of you moving out of your rental home at the end of your lease (or they give up the right to...Read more »
My property manager told me my sister is not allowed on property. Even though she has done nothing wrong,. She watches my child usually at night an sometimes stays over night if I get home too late to bring her home. She has not broken any rules. And there are lost of other tenants that have people...

The property manager is of the company who owns the property or just part of HOA? If he or she is part of the company, whether your sister staying in the property constitutes a breach of contract is a question of the lease. You can have a lawyer to review the lease for you. If he or she is just...Read more »
I’m a new private landlord in Florida and I have a tenant who wants to be on a month to month lease, would I be able to include something in the lease about if rent is not paid on time and after being served a notice they have to automatically leave the property even without an eviction notice.
Four days ago I received a letter that I needed to pressure wash the side of my house. Two days after I receive the letter I went outside and pressure wash the side of my house and it is squeaky clean. Four days after receiving the letter they sent somebody out to come and pressure wash my house... Read more »
My Lease was signed May 3, 2021 with a Termination Date of April 30, 2023. However, there is a clause that “After May 1st, 2022, at the Landlord's sole acceptance, the Lease Agreement may be terminated with 60 day prior notice, from either the Landlord or Tenant, requesting the termination....

The landlord could give the 60-day notice "requesting termination" on May 2nd, and then "accept" that request after 60 days, thus on June 30th. Doesn't make a lot of sense though. The last sentence quoted makes even less sense.
I believe the law allows landlords 15 days to notify tenants that they must vacate; however, I recommend you give them 30 days because 15 days is too short--especially if the tenants are a family with children.
