Q. How to quickly remove a house guest who has overstayed his welcome and has been caught on camera steeling from me.
A: I agree you will need to remove the guest in court likely via unlawful detainer. And I would be VERY careful mentioning the video recording as if guest did not know you were recording inside the house where occupants have an expectation of privacy, you may have in fact committed a crime; regardless if it is "your house," you knew someone else was there and needed his permission to record him inside of your house. Luckily the type of eviction/unlawful detainer you need does not require you to offer any explanation why you are kicking the person out, so I would leave the whole recording issue out of anything and never mention that again.
Q. We are renting a house in port Richey fl. The landlord let us know the house is going up for auction on April 4.
A: The auction purchaser After 4/4 has to give you 30 days notice per 83.561, absent some exceptions like if purchaser intends to live there him/herself, and you are paying around market rent for the area (not a fake tenancy of $200/month). Current landlord owes you no notice.
Q. How can I certify the buyer of For Sale by Owner wasn't introduced to my home while it was under a Broker's contract?
A: It's hard to prove a negative. If the buyer agent never talked to your agent then there will be no communications your prior broker can produce to show they are entitled to anything. You and buyer could always both sign an affidavit.
Q. Does your deposit check ,if mailed ,have to be received by 3rd day or postmarked by 3rd day
A: There is no such 3 days for a deposit. A landlord has 15 days (if not making a claim) or 30 days (if making a claim) to sent the deposit. Times are time to send, not receive.
Q. Can a title company refuse to return a deposit for 10 business days after the cancellation of a real estate sale in FL?
A: Yes, if there is ia dispute between buyer and seller as to who gets the deposit (due to who breached the contract) then the title company MUST in fact hold onto it. You will need to retain a lawyer at this point.
Q. Can I get an eviction or eviction expunged through the courts and what I ever be able to rent another apartment
A: There is no way to expunge something in a civil case. This is why not letting eviction even get filed is so importannt.
Q. I defaulted on my mortgage in 2010. Today I was served papers that I was being sued for foreclosure on that property.
A: Your liability is as if it was never foreclosed absent a prior case and auction; you are liable for the mortgage balance. Being on your credit is meaningless, credit reporting is optional not mandatory for creditors. You will need to retain a lawyer ASAP to defend and minimize your exposure as you only have 20 days from being served to respond.
Q. Who draws up a contract for buying a house from seller without an agent?
A: Absolutely a lawyer. Each side SHOULD have their own lawyer, as you dont have agents to guide either of you, but at least 1 to close the deal.
Q. I bought a new house 5 days ago and I'm having water leaking from the 2nd to the 1st floor, do I need a lawyer?
A: Impossible to say, first you need to call your insurance company and get it repaired. It may be a freak accident something broke and it happens. No one can say if you need a lawyer yet.
