  • Once an eviction is served for non payment of rent, if the rent is paid in full within 3 days can the eviction be reversed

    Gregory’s Answer

    If you pay within 3 days of receiving the 3 day notice, then you should be okay. If you are being served with a complaint, then it's very likely that the 3 days has expired and you have violated the contract.
    You cannot reverse the eviction if you are past the 3 day notice, but you could speak to your landlord and explain the situation to see if you could get back on favorable terms.

    There may be other issues with the property or lease that you might be missing and it would problably help to speak to a good attorney.

  • Will a quit claim deed prevent future claims? Condo in FL and am joint owner. Want to quit claim to they other owner.

    Gregory’s Answer

    If you live in Florida, then this should not be an issue because there are no filial support laws. If you live in PA, then the medical provider would have to get a judgment against you and have it recognized in Florida. I question whether or not Florida courts would recognize this judgment.

    Note that a quit claim would transfer your interest to your boyriend, thus protecting the condo from your creditors, so long as it was for good value. However, I would be very hesitant about quit claiming your interest to your boyfriend. You never know what can happen.

    Another option would be to set up an LLC to own the property, then you would have a layer of protection. Nevertheless, I would suggest speaking with an attorney before taking any actions, and be very leery of just grabbing a document off of the internet.

    Gregory’s Answer

    There is no law preventing the developer from demanding 10%, but developers are struggling in this market, and you have the upper hand . Make sure that you counter-offer, or just walk if need be. You may want an attorney or realtor to negotiate on your behalf.

  • Can tenants counter-sue in residential housing eviction per Florida 83?

    Gregory’s Answer

    The tenants can counter sue if the the subject of the counterclaim is related to the eviction suit. If you want to add a damage claim or other claims then you would need to file an amended complaint and seek leave of the court to do so. You may want to contact an attorney to be sure that this lawsuit goes off without a hitch.

  • Individually and severally liable

    Gregory’s Answer

    It is best to sue them both; but if both are named on the lease, then I don't see why you can't just sue one of them individually. Keep in mind that if the tenant that you sue blames the other, then both tenants may end up in the suit as a result of a cross-claim.

    I would recommend going to the clerk's office and getting a copy of the motion that is scheduled to be heard. The motion should explain exactly what is before the court.

  • In active foreclosure

    Gregory’s Answer

    Since this is your homestead there are many available options for assistance and it depends on your eligibility for those programs. The banks require numerous financial documents and each of them have different procedures that can be difficult to manuever.

    I've handled hundreds of foreclosure actions and workouts for and against banks, and you appear to be a prime candidate for assistance. I would suggest that you contact an attorney advocate your position, but whatever you do, take action and be proactive before the interest and penalties build and/or a foreclosure action is filed.
