Q. Will the bank give me time to fix things
A: If not already, an estate for your mother must be opened up and the bank will need to serve the administrator of the estate to move things along within the courts on the foreclosure case. That should buy you enough time to strategize on how to proceed with retaining the property. I would highly recommend that you see an attorney that deals in both probate and foreclosure matters right away.
Q. How do I stop my landlord from illegally evicting me. He is already putting my belongings outside. locked me out.
A: Contact law enforcement right away and they will inform your landlord of the proper method to evict and allow you to place all of your belongings back inside of the premises. Your landlord has just engaged in "self help" and may now have exposed him or herself to civil remedies and penalties. Hope this helps...
Q. I was in a car accident in Boca Raton. The driver ran a red light and t-boned my vehicle.
A: Your auto insurance provides you with $10K in PIP benefits in situations such as these. Simply provide the hospital with your automobile proof of insurance card in lieu of your HMO or PPO policy. You should also be examined and start treatment with a chiropractor immediately as well. I specialize in these types of cases. Please give my office a call asap.
Q. Can my landlord request to see my bank account balance monthly
A: Absolutely not... Such a request by a landlord is greatly irregular and intrusive. It may not be sanctioned by law. Where do you rent and what are they, some type of cult?
Q. What happens to the liens on your property once everything gets resolved with the lender?
A: Need more information. What liens and what exactly is resolved with the lender?
Q. Is a FL landlord allowed to ask for more money for prior months? He is demanding $100 each for Jan-May totaling $500.
A: The agreement that both parties came to at the very beginning of the oral lease is the final agreement. It may not be altered or arbitrarily modified unilaterally by any party. Thus your landlord may not ask for additional monies to be applied towards rent of months gone by.
Q. I was at fault in a recent two-car collision but then discovered the other driver doesn't have a drivers license. Am I
A: The fact that the other driver, whom is allegedly not at fault does not have a driver's license or a valid driver's license does not negate a finding of your own negligence. However, while I do not know the specifics of the accident, it may help in your defense to show that this unlicensed driver may be comparably or contributorily negligent.
Q. Can a landlord evict a month to month tenant (without a contract), without a written eviction notice?
A: No, the landlord may not change the locks and may not throw you or any others on the property out without first following the pre-eviction formalities such as posting a 5 day notice, filing a formal eviction complaint, obtaining a final judgment of eviction and the sheriff's execution of a writ of possession. If the landlord attempts to change the locks or throw you out without first completing the previously stated it would be considered by the law as "self-help" which is strictly prohibited and landlord may be subject to a civil fines. I would suggest you promptly contact law enforcement should the landlord attempt this. Law enforcement officers should force the landlord to cease and desist as well as provide information on the legally permissible steps to follow for ejecting one from property within this state. Hope this helps.
Q. Thank for your answe however. I went to court house they won’t start the eviction process because I’m not the owner.
A: You may need the permission of a probate Court to proceed. Yes, you must seek to retain a probate attorney.
