Legal Answers
24 Questions Answered

Q. I'm in Florida and I am deeded to a home but do not own the mortgage the home is now in foreclosure, what do i do?
A: Any equity? If so, sell it.
Q. Three people are on the same house deed. One of the people lives in the house and she gets married.
A: Depends on the language in the deed regarding how the property is currently owned.
Q. How much notice does a landlord/realtor need to give you to show the house?
A: Florida statutes state 12 hours for repair, but are silent regarding showings. I advise clients to provide 24 hour notice to tenants.
Q. Please explain FL Statues 95.11(5)(h)
A: Sounds like you may have purchased a CT from either a 2nd mortgage foreclosure or an HOA foreclosure.
Q. I have an escrow case in FL that will be filed by escrow company to interpleader action. Could I represent myself?
A: Yes, you can represent yourself if purchasing the property individually (vs. an LLC, for instance)
Q. Does a seller have to disclose a known non termite pest issue? Can the seller be legally liable if they do not disclose
A: Yes, must be disclosed.
Q. Does Florida law require the real estate agent to take the house off the market once it is under contract (not sold)?
A: It is not a Florida law. It is most likely the rule of the Realtor's local association. If you need assistance with the closing and a title company, I'd be happy to help.
Q. Can a court in Indiana decide what happens to my property in Florida?
A: A partition lawsuit to force the sale of Florida property would be required to filed in Florida. I service the Largo area and would be happy to set up a free consultation.
Q. Can I reneg on paying for this condo?
A: Your best option is either a short sale or a traditional sale - provided there is equity after the mortgage and closing costs have been paid.
