The reason I am asking is because my LL (I live in a condo) has been working very closely with us and has really been patient. We intend to pay the past due rent tomorrow evening after work as that is when the monies will be available. I'm afrai...
I agree with Attorney Fucillo.
The 24 hour time period is up 11:57 a.m. on February 16th.
Your landlord may very well intend to keep to what you discussed. I hope so.
It would be better to get an agreement in writing, but you might not be able to do that.
You should assure your landlord that you will be glad to get on a payment plan to take care
of the amounts you owe for court costs, attorney fees, process serving fees, etc.
Good luck and next time you should hire an attorney for best results.
contract to lease states it is for 1 year. I put down 1st last and security. Since no actual lease was signed can I get out early and get my deposits back?
If both you and the owner intended that you rent for one year, then you are bound to that agreement. A lease for one year does not have to be put in writing. If the Contract to Lease says you can get out of it if you don't sign the actual lease, then that would control.See question
It has been 14 days since the water heater in our building closed and over 20 apartments have been without hot water. Living conditions are not "uninhabitable". Ive already paid rent for this month. Can I withhold a portion of next months rent? Ar...
No, you may not withhold rent.
You will be evicted if you do that.
Make an appointment with a lawyer to discuss this and get representation.
The lawyer will advise you after hearing the facts and seeing your paperwork.
The tenant is a long time older renter (10+) yrs. who got sick, lost his job and I had no choice but to evict. He is homeless living locally on the streets. At one time he was very successful and in his tenure amassed a ton of pricey possessions...
If you filed a lawsuit for eviction and received the judgment for possession and the sheriff's office came by and executed the writ, then you can simply take the items to the curb and you have no responsibility for what happens to them at that point. You could post an online ad stating that you are doing so and stuff is free to anyone who wants it. That helps the stuff disappear before trash day.
This is found in Florida Statutes Chapter 83 subsection 83.62.
If not, then you will have to follow Chapter 715 as suggested by my fellow attorneys.
I live in an apartment building. My landlord has had tenants filling the whole building until recently. I have heard they are converting the building into a rehab facility for recovering alcoholic people. Are they able to have clients while they h...
Yes, they can have tenants and patients at the same time unless they are violating the lease that you have with them or violating some law or ordinance.
You may wish to hire an attorney to get advice and representation.
I signed 13 months lease in August 2016 till September 2017. In November I requested for early termination because I resign from my job and had to move back to Miami. I was told its was ok as long as I paid 2 months rent with the option of staying...
The notice you gave in November is void because you stayed past the last day (december 31st)
You were given the option of paying rent for the two months or paying a fee.
You chose to pay rent and stay, so you did not pay a fee and therefore are not entitled to getting a fee back.
Now you are lucky that they are willing to negotiate with you.
If you don't come to an agreement, then you will have to pay the penalty.
My wife and I moved into rental property in February. The rental company would not let my name on the lease because I have a felony, they are strict about that because it is a very upscale neighborhood. She got mad at me, and we argued, so I lef...
As a resident, you can call law enforcement and they will allow you to go through the gate.
Also, they should escort you to the home and explain to your wife that you have the right to remain at the property as a resident until a lawsuit for removal happens and a writ of possession is executed or a judge in a dissolution of marriage case orders you to go.
You should begin a dissolution of marriage case now and get legal representation so you can get your things and plan for the future.
My roommate had agreed to move out if I got him a hotel for a few days until he found his next place. Now that I chose a hotel and he is blackmailing me to get a nicer hotel. I do have texts that does not specify which hotel. I need him out...
Blackmail is a crime.
You should try to get him to sign a paper that states he is surrendering possession and turning over all keys as of a certain date.
See an attorney if you can't come to an agreement.
If you end up needing to give him the 15 days termination of rental notice and he pays on the first of each month, you would need to give him the notice by the 15th.
So, don't delay! Good luck!
I own my home. Everything is in my name. I pay all the bills..the only mail he receives is from AAA. He has not changed his tags or license as of yet and we have lived here since Jan. Of this year.. We broke up several mths ago I have asked him to...
Consult with a landlord tenant attorney.
If you have an agreement with the boyfriend that he will pay rent, then he is a tenant and you have to use eviction proceedings.
If you do not have a rental agreement with him, then you have to use unlawful detainer proceedings.
We have a lease stating that rent is due by the 1st of each month and that in the events it's 3 days late will be charged $75 . We would be able to pay our rent before the 3 days but our landlord has served us with a 3 day notice on the 1st before...
I agree with Attorney Fucillo.
You may be able to challenge the service of the Pay or Quit Notice being served on the day the rent is due.
However, the point is moot as you state you are going to pay before the three days are up.
And, if the landlord files a lawsuit, he would only have to deliver another Pay or Quit Notice to make the correction.
