Presumably residents have agreed that junk mail be discarded by security. If so, it would not be a crime to do so (and in any event it would be a federal matter; you will not find Florida state statutory law on the subject). Assuming that, you can be fired for refusing to do your job as assigned.

You need to speak to a lawyer in person about this, because this can't be addressed in a simple Q&A format. The big problem here is that there are rules that govern doctors and how they can form medical partnerships. There may be a way of accomplishing your objectives, but it may need to take a...

It's legally impossible to be "under the impression that I was purchasing it" if you didn't have a legal document drawn up for that purpose. I'm guessing that the new owner of the mobile home park intends to kick you and the other residents out at some point in order to turn the property over to... Read more »

Q: What are the consequences/legality of purchasing a restaurant business if one of the 3 owners is in probate?

We're a week out from completing our due diligence period for purchasing a restaurant and it was just disclosed to us the deceased owner's name is still on the company and though they had a will it could place their share of the restaurant in probate.

Nina Whitehurst
Nina Whitehurst answered on Sep 20, 2019

The deceased owner's estate needs to be probated in order to transfer ownership of that share of the business to the deceased owner's heir(s). However, there is much more to it than that. There might be a buy-sell agreement in place or other mechanisms for dealing with the death of an owner.... Read more »

As you get more with honey than with vinegar first I would suggest you send her a nice letter saying you are sorry to see she is dissatisfied but if she checks her receipt there was no charge. See what her response is. Then a lawyer should help you with a very carefully worded letter to google.

Whether what the builder did was "legal" is impossible to say without much more information. I will note that there is very little difference between what you did (post a bad review online) and what you say the builder did in response (posted pictures of your signed contact online.)
