You might be one of many Florida residents who rent an apartment or condominium complex in this state. Perhaps you live there full-time, year-round or maybe you reside in another state and use your rental property to escape winter weather elsewhere. If real estate disputes arise between you and your landlord, it can cause a lot of stress, and might be difficult to resolve.
Tenants and landlords each have rights and obligations regarding rented properties. Various matters, such as collecting or paying security deposits, laws regarding fair housing and more may become important issues if a dispute arises between the two parties. Lease agreements, also, are often subject to dispute, particularly if one party accuses the other of failing to adhere to the terms of a specific contract.
Are you a tenant who believes your rights were violated due to discrimination regarding race, ethnicity or gender? Do you believe your landlord unlawfully withheld the return of a security deposit? When these or other rental disputes arise, it is critical that you understand the applicable laws that govern such matters, as well as how to protect your rights and financial interests.
Maybe you are on the other side of such issues as a landlord of a Florida rental property. In either case, if you’re concerned about real estate disputes and in need of guidance and legal support, you may request a consultation with Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., at any time. By requesting a meeting, you can connect with an experienced legal team who is not only well-versed in all aspects of real estate law but also has attorneys on hand who are fluent in Spanish, which, of course, is helpful to clients when English is not their native language.
