    Unless you had an agreement to forgive the deficiency, then yes they can come after you and you are responsible. I would consult with your bankruptcy attorney on whether it needs to be included.

    First, never allow someone to move in without a full background check and deposit upfront. There are many people out there that know how to use the laws to their advantage and essentially live free until an eviction can be obtained. Second, do you have a written lease with this guy. If not...he has move, hasn't paid, no keys and no way to prove he is a tenant other than the prior run ins with the cops. I would argue he abondend his lease and can no longer move back in. If he shows up,...

    First, do not reduce your services as that can give the tenant a legitimate reason to withhold rent. Second, I'm not sure what you mean by stronger position nor why the tenant is threatening to sue. Your relationship with the tenant is dictated first by the lease then by Florida Law. There are circumstances where a tenant can withhold rents, but they have to follow the agreement and the law to do so. Also, merely allowing the lease to expire does not mean they will move out. Nor...

    Although the tenant may try to raise the date issue as a defense, the intent of the parties upon entering the agreement is what will decide the issue. It may cause some leagl rangling in the eviction, but I believe in the end it will be seen for what it is, a scrivinors error.

    The chances of you collecting damages depends on the facts of the accident and the injuries you sustained. The fact it was with a delivery truck in and of itself makes no difference. Your damages are what they are. However, if the delivery truck had commercial insurance coverage, the policy limits will likely be higher than the limits on an individual's vehicle. Regardless, of the limits, the insurance company will only payout what is reasonable based property damage, injuries, and "pain...

    You will have to have medical evidence that your condition prevents you from gainful employment. Then seek guidance with a social security attorney to make sure you have everything you need to prove your disability claim. With social security disability, you will have had to work enough quarters to be eligible. Even then, don't be surprised if you are denied initially and have to file an appeal.

    This is because the trustee and court is looking at all of your assets to determine how to handle your bankruptcy. Under chapter 13 you are asking the court to reduce your debt obligations in order to make them affordable. Therefore, they want to confirm all debts, income and expenses you have. The best way to confirm how much you actually have if to review your bank statements.
