Biography

Attorney Natalia Ouellette-Grice’s real estate, business, and estate planning practice focuses on helping families and business owners who choose to protect their loved ones from the State’s plan for their business, death and incapacitation.

With her expert guidance, Natalia and her team ensure that clients create specific, intentional, and planned actions from running their business to their death and incapacitation based on what the Client wants to happen with their family, assets, and businesses.

Everyone is born with an Estate Plan and a Business Plan, the State’s Plan! The default State Plan is expensive, time-consuming, public, and on a judge’s terms, not yours. Natalia is on a mission to change that for those who choose to take action while they still can.

Our clients don't "let" poverty happen to them. They don't "let" amateurs handle their real estate investments and businesses. They don't "let" opportunities slip by because others don't understand them. They don't "let" the State's estate plan near their businesses, assets, or families. Instead, our clients focus on creating wealth. They have a millionaire mindset, even if they aren’t there yet.

Natalia’s considerable legal and financial expertise includes real estate protection, family conflict prevention, wealth preservation and growth, and holistic business planning.

Natalia graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Florida in 2005 with her bachelor’s degree in International Relations. She then received her Juris Doctorate Cum Laude from Stetson University College of Law in 2009. While attending law school, Natalia attended the University of South Florida and received her Masters in Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and International Business in 2010. Natalia was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2009, and has been practicing law in Florida, serving clients in estate planning and business planning.

Legal Answers
Q. Can a HOA Board vote to suspend/waive any mandatory assessments as a gesture for COVID-19 relief to its members?
A: If the operating restrictions, bylaws, and articles do not grant the Board such discretion and the HOA members and Board have not established such authority by vote and adoption of said provisions then yes, it is likely that a fiduciary duty to the association is being breached by the members of the Board and litigation for said breach could ensue. Even if the Board had sincere humanitarian intentions.
Q. I have recently signed a new lease agreement here in Florida (May13). I pay my deposit and my prorated 1st months rent.
A: Florida statute requires you send notices of items that need to be repaired in writing to your landlord. Once they have received written notice, they have 7 days to cure the deficiencies in the property. 83.51 Landlord’s obligation to maintain premises.— (1) The landlord at all times during the tenancy shall: (a) Comply with the requirements of applicable building, housing, and health codes; or (b) Where there are no applicable building, housing, or health codes, maintain the roofs, windows, doors, floors, steps, porches, exterior walls, foundations, and all other structural components in good repair and capable of resisting normal forces and loads and the plumbing in reasonable working condition. The landlord, at commencement of the tenancy, must ensure that screens are installed in a reasonable condition. Thereafter, the landlord must repair damage to screens once annually, when necessary, until termination of the rental agreement. The landlord is not required to maintain a mobile home or other structure owned by the tenant. The landlord’s obligations under this subsection may be altered or modified in writing with respect to a single-family home or duplex. (2)(a) Unless otherwise agreed in writing, in addition to the requirements of subsection (1), the landlord of a dwelling unit other than a single-family home or duplex shall, at all times during the tenancy, make reasonable provisions for: 1. The extermination of rats, mice, roaches, ants, wood-destroying organisms, and bedbugs. When vacation of the premises is required for such extermination, the landlord is not liable for damages but shall abate the rent. The tenant must temporarily vacate the premises for a period of time not to exceed 4 days, on 7 days’ written notice, if necessary, for extermination pursuant to this subparagraph. 2. Locks and keys. 3. The clean and safe condition of common areas. 4. Garbage removal and outside receptacles therefor. 5. Functioning facilities for heat during winter, running water, and hot water. (b) Unless otherwise agreed in writing, at the commencement of the tenancy of a single-family home or duplex, the landlord shall install working smoke detection devices. As used in this paragraph, the term “smoke detection device” means an electrical or battery-operated device which detects visible or invisible particles of combustion and which is listed by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., Factory Mutual Laboratories, Inc., or any other nationally recognized testing laboratory using nationally accepted testing standards.
Q. Is it legal to enforce a year office lease repetitively over 12 years?
A: It depends on the exact terms under the original written contract. You should speak with an attorney who can review the express terms of the lease with you, including lease renewals. Generally though, if there is renewal language, you have not vacated, and you continue to make lease payments, you are assenting to the renovation of the lease.
