  • Can I withold a portion of rent to cover laundry expenses if my landlord doesn't repair/replace the washer/dryer in the unit?

    When I moved into the apartment it came with a washer/dryer. During our walkthrough of the apartment the property manager discovered the washer/dryer didn't work and stated they would get it repaired/replaced. It has been over 30 days since I mo...

    Stanley’s Answer

    If your lease provides that the washer and dryer is the landlords responsibility for repairs, then pursuant to Chapter 83 you must provide a 7 day written notice to the landlord of your intent to undertake the repair and have same offset against the next installment of rent. Please be mindful, if the landlord makes a good faith effort during the 7 days to make the repairs but is not able to complete same due to the need to order parts the landlord will be provided with a reasonable period of time to complete the repairs. The next query is what is a reasonable period of time? that is up to the fact finder-the judge.

  • How do I determine if I had Adjudication of Guilt Withheld?

    I entered a Pre-Trial Intervention program in 1989 and completed all requirements. My case was filed Nolle Prosequi. I believe I did not have Adjudication of Guilt Withheld since I was never found guilty, bt wanted to double check. Thank you.

    Stanley’s Answer

    The very notion of your successfull completion of the Pre-trial Intervention program as you stated qualified you to receive a Nolle Prosequi, ie- no information will be filed and thus your case was dismissed. The court no longer has jurisdiction and thus has no authority to sentence you or make any findings.

    Stanley’s Answer

    I would need to know more facts. However, it could be a double edge sword. Your co-defendant could testify against you in favor of the state to have obtained a better disposition for himself or he could testify in your favor. In either case you should not be talking with your co-defendant. Have your attorney communicate with his attorney to find out the level of cooperation of your co-defendant.

  • What would it cost for an lawyer to Domesticate a Foreign order.

    I need a Florida Lawyer to file a Domestication of a Foreign Order. But I'm already over my head in legal fees since my divorce. However, I need to have this done. What approximately would be the lawyer's fee????

    Stanley’s Answer

    It is very difficult if not impossible to provide an estimate of the cost and legal fees to domesticate a foreign order without knowing the type of order, ie- child support, timesharing, Spousal support, Equitable distribution, Restraining order, etc.., the state or origin of the order, was the order obtained by default, the date the order was entered and the subject of the order. The only certain thing I can tell you at this juncture is the filing fee of the clerk of court. And you can simply contact the clerk online and therein you will find the published fee.
