Legal Answers
Q. If I signed a year long lease with my apartment landlord, can he sell the apartment before the year is up?
A: The landlord can sell the property but the new owner must take the property subject to your lease. The landlord nor the new owner can force you to leave unless a valid reason exists to terminate your tenancy. Unless there is a provision in your lease stating otherwise, your lease does not terminate when landlord sells. Again, by law, the new owner takes ownership subject to your lease - meaning your lease continues and the new owner becomes your new landlord.
Q. Can the landlord interfere with my private life or my girlfriends private life for no reason?
A: If the behavior doesn’t stop you’ll need to hire a lawyer to put him on notice that his behavior is in violation of Florida law. If he threatens you or your girlfriend in any way call the police. Florida law does not permit him to simply withhold your deposit- he must have a valid reason to do so. Nothing in what you stated above would justify him keeping your deposit.
Q. 3 day notice
A: Pay whatever you think you owe immediately. Advise your landlord in writing that the amounts on the notice are not accurate. Provide them proof of this. If they file for eviction you need to immediately respond to the complaint and deposit what amounts you think are past due into the court registry and file a motion to determine rent.
