Subdivision Improvements and the Single Claim of Lien

March 29, 2013 Construction Industry Legal Blog

Operating under Florida’s Construction Lien Law can leave some contractors feeling as if they are negotiating the proverbial “minefield” of the Florida Statutes. One reoccurring question (whether in residential or commercial construction) I routinely address is, “How many construction liens must I record”. That depends on whether you have one or more contracts and are dealing with one or more owners.

Banking Liability and Avoidance of Check Scams: Enforcing Deposit Agreements When Customers Have Been Defrauded by Nigerian Check Scams

March 22, 2013 Banking & Financial Services Industry Legal Blog

By: Charles B. Jimerson, Esq.

Stop me if you have heard this one: An attorney receives a call from a desperate potential new client. Somehow the business transaction this international client was dealing with has hit an unexpected bump in the road, and because the client is dealing with an international business set here in the U.S., the situation now requires the fine eye of an experienced business litigation attorney. The company the new client claims he works for and the debtor checks out so the attorney draws up representation papers and accepts the new client. Within no time at all the client calls and informs his lawyer a settlement to be paid to the lawyer’s trust account within days. Time is of the essence, and the client convinces the lawyer it needs the money wired as soon as the lawyer receives the money order or cashier’s check.

Should Timeshare Management Associations Operate Their Own Timeshare Exchange Program?

March 11, 2013 Community Association Industry Legal Blog

By Hans C. Wahl, Esquire

As unit owners become delinquent on their management fees and default on their payments, timeshare management associations find themselves in a credit crunch due to decreased revenues. Many associations are seeking ways to increase, or simply maintain, their revenue stream. If the association has the capacity and oversight capability, managing its own unit owner exchange program can be an excellent means of creating additional revenue.
