5 Questions Answered

Q. Is it lawful to run a promotion that the top 10 customers win a prize?
A: It is likely a lawful promo. More facts would be needed in order to provide a clear determination. A rule of thumb is to avoid the appearance of discriminatory or prejudicial practices in a promotion.
Q. Which company to sue
A: It appears you may have several causes of action against both parties. In addition, if you have insurance, it may be prudent to reach out to the carrier and review your policy for the type of coverage you may have under the circumstances. Please contact me if you would like to discuss further.
Q. How can I find out if a case has been paid/settled?
A: You would have to check the court docket in order to determine whether a satisfaction of judgment or an order of dismissal following a stipulation of settlement has been entered. Please contact me if you would like to further discuss.
Q. My roommate didn't add me to the lease. He's now wanting to break the lease. He's only gave me 10 days. What can I do?
A: Under the circumstances presented, your roomate is a cotenant. It does not appear that he has the right to evict you. Rather, the landlord wold have to initiate the eviction process. Much of the outcome in this matter depends on the landlord's position on the issue. Regardless, I'd suggest moving as quickly as possible in order to avaid an awkward situation with the "friend." Contact me if you would like to further disucss the issue.
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: It depends on the month to month rent that was agreed to between the parties. If you agreed to an $800 month to month rental agreement and the landlord accepted $800 payments through the month of May, then the landlord would not be entitled to ask for an additional $100 for each past month which would total a $900 monthly rental payment and a cumulative total of $500 owed in the eyes of the landlord. Despite his/ her request, the landlord is not entitled to the extra money under the circumstances above. However, landlord may terminaate the tenancy by providing 15 days notice. I'd suggest negotiating with the landlord to establish a new month to month rental agreement that works for both parties. Please contact me if you would like to discuss further.
