1. Not in Florida. Anytime after the 3 day notice the LL may begin eviction proceedings.
2. In Florida and in my county in particular it seems it is very strictly construed. Thus its my first defense and I hope it is a very strong one. One thing working against me is that I can't find the actual cases only summaries on the internet. I suppose a weekend trip to the law library is in order. So its hard to see whether "This court rules that the three day notice is fatally defective because it was not signed by the landlord", means that that area was blank, or that maybe they typed the name and didn't handsign it, or that they put "property manager" instead of a real person there.
3. Not in Florida.
4. Owned by a corporation, that corp is represented by a lawyer who is representing the corp.
5. It's precisely that concept described in No. 5 (Estoppel) that is my second defense. There have been countless rulings made that as long as the rent is in the registry, that estoppel seems to be a very good defense.
6. Always :)
7. I'd really like to find out if I can do interrogatories, but the summary nature of the proceedings seems to rule that out.
8. So noted.
6. I don't think thats going to happen here.
7. .......... lol
