EVICTION LAWYER IN KISSIMMEE
If you live in a rental property in Florida – whether it’s a condo, an apartment or a house – you’re far from alone. More than 2.5 million people in Florida rent, including many people in Kissimmee, Orlando, St. Cloud, Winter Park and other communities throughout Orange and Osceola counties.
For many of us, signing that first lease is a dream. But if a dispute arises between you and your landlord, that dream can quickly turn into a nightmare. The same is true for any other breach of contract, whether it’s between two individuals or businesses.
As an eviction lawyer in Kissimmee, attorney R. Rudy Ramjeawan with the Ramjeawan Law Group, P.A., is dedicated to help people settle their landlord-tenant disputes quickly and efficiently. Hiring a contract dispute attorney in Kissimmee can greatly increase your chances at receiving a positive outcome.
In Florida, contract and landlord-tenant disputes are considered civil law. Here are some basics that you should know:
Landlord-Tenant Disputes in Florida
If you’re renting and you have a signed lease, you are bound to pay rent on the date indicated on that contract. Most rents are paid on a monthly basis. If you are three days late with a rent payment, Florida gives your landlord the right to file for an eviction.
In the same respect, if your landlord believes you’ve damaged your rental property – or a neighbor’s rental property – or that you’ve repeatedly violated terms of your lease, your landlord must give you seven days’ notice before he or she can formally file for eviction. This is called a “seven-day notice to cure.” If it’s your first offense and you cure the problem, you may avoid eviction. If you don’t, your landlord may begin the eviction process.
If you face eviction, the Kissimmee eviction lawyers at the Ramjeawan Law Group, P.A., will help you know your rights. Landlords must follow the legal processes for eviction, and if they don’t, you may have a case.
Security Deposit and Discrimination Issues
Many landlord-tenant disputes in Florida involve the security deposit. As per Florida law, security deposits must be returned within one month after a tenant moves. While many of these are small claims court matters, they can escalate if combined with any other concerns a tenant may have about the actions of his landlord.
Florida law protects tenants from discrimination. It also protects tenants from retaliation for speaking up about unsafe living conditions. And it gives you the right to withhold rent if a landlord fails to make major repairs, such as fixing a faulty water heater. As a landlord-tenant lawyer in Kissimmee, R. Rudy Ramjeawan, Esq., is well versed in Florida tenant-landlord law and is experienced in these types of legal cases.
Contract Disputes in Florida
When you enter into a contract with another person or a business, you both agree to the rights set forth in that contract. But contracts sometimes get broken. And when they do, you’ll want a breach of contract lawyer in Kissimmee to help you.
Florida law says that a written or oral contract happens when there is an offer from one party to another, acceptance of that offer, and then the exchange of consideration (something of value, such as services, goods or money).
To meet a breach of contract, you must prove that your contract was legally binding, that there was a material breach, and that damages resulted from that breach.
There are many types of contracts in Florida, including purchase and sale agreements, service agreements, franchise agreements, noncompete agreements, warranty agreements, shareholder agreements, commercial leases, loans, partnership agreements, non-compete agreements and more.
