Legal Answers
16 Questions Answered
Q. I was suppose to go to court for a traffic ticket, and i told the court i do not have any transportation or have enough
A: Nowadays most if not all traffic pre-trial conferences or trials are done via Zoom virtual conference. Alternatively, they may be done by dial in. Rarely, at least in the Florida counties I practice in, they are done in person. I would recommend contacting the Court's judicial assistant and ask to set the next hearing for Zoom or by phone if possible. You likely missed the pre-trial conference which is usually reset automatically.
Q. How do I minimize liability when letting my son drive my car in Florida?
A: If he is involved in an accident in your car, both his insurance and your insurance may provide coverage, as you both may be named defendants in a lawsuit. You will have to review your policy to confirm there is coverage under those circumstances and it does not fall under a policy exclusion. If you would like to limit exposure to out-of-pocket expenses in the event of a judgement, it may be advisable to increase the policy limit and obtain more coverage. It likely doesn't matter if he uses your insurance or his mothers insurance, I would just confirm a high policy limit and coverage for those circumstances.
Q. Landlord won’t allow tenants to inspect property to ascertain accuracy move out report, not return deposit
A: Pursuant to Florida precedent, there is some legal authority which dictates a landlords may only charge for excess wear and tear. In other words, he/ she may not claim the security deposit for ordinary wear and tear like paint retouch and cleaning. In addition, the landlord has to comply with the procedural obligations for making a claim under the landlord tenant act which includes in part sending the formal notice within 30 days. Otherwise, Landlord waives his right to the claim. Lastly, he may not allow you to see the move-out report now, but it will certainly need to be produced if the matter goes into litigation. The important lesson here is ALWAYS take photos of the entire unit when you are going to move out so you can utilize them as proof that the unit was left in good condition. Hopefully you have these photos.
