Legal Answers
Q. I recently payed for a new septic system the estimate was 10900 . Now they are done they are trying to charge me double
A: It depends on the terms of the estimate and the written agreement (if any). Unfortunately, contractors sometimes complete these sort of practices. It is important that you negotiate a contract clearly indicating the scope of work prior to hiring the contractor. Nevertheless, sometimes there may be a change order due to unforeseen circumstances. However, double the prices seems unreasonable. You must carefully review the terms of the agreement.
Q. in Florida my tenant stayed 8 extra days after our yearly lease expired. Do i have to charge him only the 8 days, or
A: The answer to your question may depend on the terms of the lease. However, Florida law Chapter 83.06 provides in pertinent part that "[w]hen any tenant refuses to give up possession of the premises at the end of the tenant’s lease, the landlord, the landlord’s agent, attorney, or legal representatives, may demand of such tenant double the monthly rent, and may recover the same at the expiration of every month, or in the same proportion for a longer or shorter time by distress, in the manner pointed out hereinafter." I hope this provides clarification as to your rights.
Q. Can I sue an EMT for terrible treatment, slander that could have put my life and health in jeopardy
A: This is a very interesting question. It is important to note that anyone can file a lawsuit in Florida for almost any reason. However, the critical question you may want answered is will you prevail on a negligence claim against the EMT. It appears that the answer will depend in part on whether you sustained any damages due to his alleged negligence. This includes monetary damages as well as pain and suffering. Please contact me if you would like to discuss the matter further. Our office can be reached at (786)670-9866.
