Housing is a basic human need. Home is not only where we find refuge from the word, but where gather with friends and family. For most individuals and families, housing is their single largest monthly expense. Dishonest or unlawful behavior by mortgage lenders, homeowner’s associations, condominium associations or landlords can be devastating events that can negatively impact nearly all aspects of an individual’s or family’s life.
There are many laws which govern housing related matters such as the Federal Truth in Lending Act, The Florida Residential Landlord Tenant Act, the Florida Homeowner’s Association Act, the Florida Condominium Act, the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act, and the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act. I have litigated cases with issues arising under each of these statues.

Understanding your legal rights and responsibilities can keep small problems from spinning out of control.
