Q. I have purchased a property and am doing a pre-screening before allowing to view property, more on bottom..
A: I agree with attorney Klurfeld, lying or a negative eviction history is a basis to deny a rental. Good luck,
Q. I am renting an apt, my son is about to sign a lease in another complex and neeeds a co-signer due to him having poor
A: No way to say for sure, as lender's can and do use a variety of factors to determine whether to loan money. Just FYI, keep in mind that as a co-signer you are legally responsible for the debt if your son cannot pay. Hope this helps.
Q. i was brought up for a small claims suit from a woman in Florida but I live in Mass.
A: Not enough information to give you advice here accept to say that ignoring it can lead to bad results down the line. You need to do something to challenge it ect. If you do nothing she will likely get a judgment and then dealing with a judgment will be way harder. I suggest that you consult with an attorney near the area (county) where the small claims case was filed.
Q. Do I need an attorney for a civil case to enforce a promissory note?
A: Technically no. $9,000.00 would put it in county court and if you are the payee on the note you can bring the case yourself. However, I strongly advise that hiring a lawyer would be the best option. Good luck,
Q. Can you claim fraud when used car purchased as is breaks down after 18 hours of ownership
A: No way to say here online. Best option is to consult with an attorney in your area to go over the facts and any paperwork in detail to determine if this is a case worth pursuing in court. Good Luck
Q. If my old roomates broke down van has been on my property for over a year, isn't it considered my property
A: Typically no, not just by sitting there. You will need to do the following: To title an abandoned vehicle in Florida, contact the local police department, and make a reasonable attempt to find the owner. After 90 days, if the vehicle is unclaimed, the finder of the property is able to assert ownership. Sections 705.103, 713.78 and 320.01 of the Florida statutes lay out the process to declare a vehicle abandoned and to title it in a finder's name. Florida law requires a finder to report the abandoned vehicle to a law enforcement agency. If the owners are not located, the authorities often take possession of abandoned vehicles. The law states that 90 days must pass before declaring a vehicle officially abandoned. During this time, a finder must make reasonable efforts to contact the true owner. This includes publishing a notice that describes the property in a newspaper which regularly circulates in the county where the claimant found the vehicle. Although there are sometimes fees involved, it is possible for the finder to contact the DMV for information regarding the registered address of the vehicle’s legal owner. If the vehicle is unclaimed by the legal owner after 90 days, a finder declares ownership by going to the police station and paying any storage and transport costs the authorities incurred. Good luck,
Q. I loaned a vehicle to a friend now 9 days ago. The are refusing to return it. She ignores all calls and texts.
A: I assume by bolo you reported it stolen. If not do so asap and provide the sheriff will her work and home address ect. If you have an extra key and know where the vehicle is, go get it while she is at work. Its your car you don't need her permission.
Q. Can my LLC sell rental property, dissolve, and a new LLC use the money to buy rental without taxes?
A: The taxes are capital gains and charged on the sale. Difference in purchase value and sale value. Yes you can increase your basis based upon loans ect that are paid back. In my opinion you will owe capital gains and no way around that. Lastly, you are asking sophisticated tax planning advice via a free legal advice website, why? On something this serious don't you think you need to get very detailed and specific advice since ultimately if you don't pay the taxes the IRS will likely knock on your door in the future. I think that you really need to seek out a tax lawyer and give him or her the full details and get specific advice. Good luck,
Q. Consulting Agency created to solicit roof jobs in FL for state licensed contractor, with whom we have signed agreement.
A: Honestly, I think that you are going about this backwards. You have apparently talked or consulted directly with an attorney and now you are on the internet seeking free legal advice. This site is designed to give answers to basic legal questions and is not a substitute for hiring a lawyer to represent you. You really need to hire a lawyer to research this issue thoroughly and give you a legal opinion. There is just no way to give you that advice via this forum. Good luck.
