Legal Answers
45 Questions Answered

Q. Am i still responsible and out any way i can get out of car? Or is it now chrysler to fix
A: My guess is that your rights are governed by the warranty. You may also have a claim against the company that replaced the engine. The engine may have been replaced with a used engine that failed or there may have been negligence in the repair process.
Q. Sue for truck repair?
A: Have an attorney review the documents for you but most likely the statute of limitations prevents you from taking action now. It has been over five years sine the repairs were made.
Q. My child was injured on his walk home from elementary school. He was technically on someone's lawn.
A: Possibly. You should consult an attorney immediately. Many of us provide free consultations for injury claims.
Q. How much compensation will I get
A: Consult an attorney for a free consultation. Be prepared to present the proof to the attorney.
Q. I live in a rental property in St Pete FL. Recently my roomate, who is on the signed lease, decdided to leave
A: Without reading your lease I assume that the roommate remains responsible for their portion of the rent. You are most likely fully responsible for the entire rent each month and the landlord does not have to go after the roommate for half of the rent. You can sue your former roommate for their share of the rent.
Q. Does the landlord have a right to evict you for having an overnight guest?
A: It depends on your lease terms. Does the lease prohibit overnight guests?
Q. Can Florida Statute 163.04 this statue be sent to mediation in small claims court in Florida?
A: Contact an attorney that has experience with HOA matters. You may get one that is willing to take the case on a contingency basis because of the attorney fee provision in Fla. Stat 163.04
Q. Can I hold off paying rent due to breach of contract from the landlord?
A: You should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Choose a personal injury lawyer that has experience with landlord tenant matters. I handle both personal injury and landlord-tenant cases. I provide a free consultation to answer your questions regarding this type of problem.
Q. Can a master tenant who subletted their room still live in the house?
A: The rights of the master tenant and subleasing tenant are governed by the lease between the parties. The lease should specify the area that you leased and how much control you have. Does the lease state that you will have exclusive use of the premises? It all comes down to the lease terms.
