Eviction actions for possession under Florida law provide a five (5) day time period to respond to a complaint after you have received service of process. If you fail to file your response within five (5) days, you may be defaulted in which a judgment may be entered against you.
Once you have been served, under Florida law, you may have only twenty (20) days to file a response. If you fail to file your response within twenty (20) days, you may be defaulted in which a judgment may be entered against you. So if you have been served with service of process, you need to act fast and contact an attorney immediately.
You may need to pursue legal action to obtain payment from your customer to collect what is owed. However, extra care needs to be taken to make sure, as a vendor, that you abide by all the terms of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Failure to do so may result in you being liable to the same customer that has not paid you.
When a contract is executed, the contract becomes the terms between the parties. When one of the parties breaches the contract, depending on the terms of the contract, the other parties may have certain rights. Every contract is different. It is important that you contact an attorney to review the terms of your contract in the event of breach. You can contact our office for a free consultation to determine your rights when there has been a breach.
