I've moved into a condo a few months ago. Prior to moving in, there were several different issues that I brought to their attention. After moving in, the water heater went out once and the AC has gone out 4-5 times now. The communication between m...
I agree. In Florida the a/c is not required maintenance unless it is in the lease.
Assuming it is in the lease that landlord is required to maintain a/c, your only remedy is to give the amount of notice required under the lease (or 7 days if the lease is silent). Then move out if it is not repaired after the notice is expired.
If the lease does not require the landlord to maintain the a/c the. You have two options. (1) stick it out for the year or (2) move out breaching the lease and deal with the consequences of the breach.See question
Now my lawyer refuses to give me the money and close the case because the doctor will not accept less than 45000 dollars but the settlement was only for 15,000 which is the maximum of the insurance by the driver. I was a passenger in the car. Th...
This is a tough situation for both your attorney and you. The letter of protection obligates him to pay the provider before paying you. The attorney cannot pay out any funds until you execute the release and settlement summary. You likely won't execute these documents when the provider will get all of the money. So back to square one and around and around you go.
I have had this happen a few times to me and always resolved by negotiating with the provider to allow my client to get some part of the settlement so that something could be paid. Otherwise the provider will get zero. Absent working out a settlement, I would "interplead" the money into the court and then let the judge tell me where the money should go. I have never had to interplead the funds of a settlement but I know colleagues that have. I am not saying that your attorney should do it this way or has to do it this. Only that this is the way I have handled this type of situation in the past.
There may be other ways to handle this. I suggest meeting with your attorney and discussing the options that he has in mind.
Hope this helps.See question

When the lease is up, he can rent to whom ever he wants for whatever price he wants. We don't have the lease so it is difficult to say for sure. I suggest consulting a local real estate attorney who can review the lease, notice, and any other relevant documents to determine if you have any recourse.See question
My divorce was final in 2012 i had an child support order to pay 441 plus 50 toward my arrears i was current on my child support the State of Texas thinks that i owe 14,000 and now there taking 200 toward my arrears..
The short answer is yes. But it is more complicated. You didn't provide enough facts. Likely the state of Texas sent the information to Florida child support enforcement who is garnishing your wages and sending the money to Texas.
I recommend you retain a local family law/child support attorney who will know how to navigate this and get you the appropriate credit for what you have paid.See question

Yes. And I suggest you don't post about it. Don't talk about it except to a local criminal defense attorney. You don't talk to law enforcement about it all.See question
I owe about 17k in credit cards. Not in collection yet. I was told that I can settle my debt directly with credit card companies before it goes to the collection. I've been late a few times though. can I really do it at this stage?
Yes you can settle. I encourage you to get the agreement in writing before paying them anything. When you pay them, keep the proof of payment and the agreement as they often come back collecting it again later.See question

You need a creditor bankruptcy attorney who is also familiar with Florida's construction lien law. You will first need to determine whether you lien is valid meaning you are a secured creditor. Then the attorney would file an appropriate proof of claim. Hope this helps.See question

You really want to be careful with this and ensure you are in compliance as worker's compensation coverage issues can become criminal. Construction companies are made examples of often. I suggest you consult a construction law/workers compensation attorney to discuss your specific facts to ensure compliance. Hope this helps.See question
