With years of intimate knowledge of tenant's rights in Florida and experience with rentals and leases, at the Law Offices of Steven Veinger, we've got your back! Contact Mr. Veinger today for a consultation. If you’re in Miami and are in need of a traffic lawyer, Steven Veinger is definitely your man. Over the last two years I’ve gotten tons of speeding tickets and didn’t think there was any chance I’d be able to keep my license. Mr. Veinger was able to help me plead my traffic charges down in court and saved me tons of money in fines, not to mention I can still drive! I was wrongfully pulled over after a night out on Miami Beach with some friends. I had a few drinks but wasn’t planning to drive home, just sitting in my car with the ignition off. The police were railroading me and still decided to arrest me for a DUI. My wife found Steven online and this man saved me, was able to have my charges dropped completely without a trial or anything. I’m so thankful and really owe him, I work a federal job, and this could have cost me my entire career. Thanks Steven! Mr. Veinger is a great lawyer. He helped my sister and I both get our green cards over the last year. He always called us with updates and you could tell he was just as happy as we were when we got the good news! I recommended him to a few of my cousins from DR who are in the process as well, and they’re have nothing but good things to say about him either. I drive so much for work and I’m always getting tickets here and there. But for every one I always call Mr. Veinger, he’s helped me out of some really bad tickets – getting some reduced and most of them thrown out completely. I was a bit of a speed freak in my early 20’s and really screwed up my license bad, I wish I knew about him back then too! I came to this country over 33 years ago from El Salvador and back then I was able to save money, start a business and bring my wife and son over without too much problems. Now that we are all citizens I tried to help bring over some other relatives so they could get a better education with us in Florida but I realize things have really changed and it was a lot harder now. My son found Mr. Veinger and he was able to help us get all the paperwork done and make sure everything was perfect. He worked so hard for us my whole family is very thankful to him. He is a good lawyer and a very nice person too. He cares a lot for his clients. I run a business as a broker for exotic cars in Miami Beach. When you work with expensive cars like these, they have a tendency to break down a lot but never had a case this bad. Last year I had purchased a very expensive car (not saying the maker) for my own collection and after a few weeks, every time the car drove over 50 mph it would have the same transmission failure issue. I took it to the dealer, and they gave it back within two days saying it was fixed. This was repeated 3 more times within the next two weeks, until I finally told them I wanted to give the car back, but they refused since I guess its hard enough to find one buyer for such an exotic car. I threatened to sue and when I was looking for lawyers online, I found Steven Veinger, after out initial meeting he recommend filing a lemon law claim with the manufacturer. This man is such a hard worker, he filed my paperwork quickly and without any issues. I was amazed at how hard he worked for me and how well he was able to work against the manufacturer. In the end I was able to get back the price I paid for the car and then some! Definitely recommend this guy to anybody having car issues. It’s funny to think about now, but a few years ago I was a heavy drug abuser and ended up getting myself into a lot of trouble with the law. I was charged with possession with intent to sell a controlled substance that was rampant in my area of Florida for a while. Despite the substances being my own, and for my own use, the police would not believe me and used some sort of technicalities to charge me with intent to sell. A friend of mine had a much smaller drug charge earlier that year and recommended I use the same lawyer, Steven Veinger. He was a really nice guy, very understanding and wasn’t like everyone else I had spoken to, who had rushed to say I was guilty. He earned every penny I paid him too, helping get my bail lowered to a reasonable amount to start. Then within the next few weeks he had slowly hurt the prosecutions case little by little, until they ended up dropping it down to a possession charge. The best part of it all was that I got no fine, or jail time, but I was ordered into a tough drug treatment program. And aside from one slip up early on, I’ve been completely clean for over 3 years now.

Landlord Tenant

Landlord Tenant Law
As one of the biggest states in the union, Florida has a population of just over 21 million people. And of those over 20 million-plus individuals, approximately 15% are renters. With such a vast number of renters across the state, Florida has instituted some of the most thorough landlord tenant laws across the US via the Florida Fair Housing Act. With over 20 years of experience in the field, Steven Veinger, Esq. is one of the state’s top landlord tenant lawyers and can assist both landlords and tenants with a variety of issues and grievances – no matter how large or small they might be! Learn more about the landlord tenant system in Florida below.

The Florida Fair Housing Act
Originally a part of the 1968 Federal Fair Housing Act, this important piece of legislation was put in place to protect tenants’ rights by outlining certain behavior of landlords.
The act states that landlords must refrain from the following:

  • Intimidating renters or tenants who attempt to assert their rights.
  • Create an unfair system if rules and terms within lease agreements.
  • Retaliatory practices against those tenants who assert their rights.
  • Prohibit certain tenants from renting certain areas or acquiring certain services.
  • Preventing tenants from renting or negotiating to rent housing.
  • Preventing tenants from inspecting the property prior to rental.
  • Discriminate tenants based on factors such as race, nationality, skin color, gender, marital status, pregnancy, handicaps, and more.

What is a Lease Agreement?
In the world of rental properties, the lease agreement is the most important documentation between a landlord and tenant. A lease agreement is a legally binding contract that outlines the terms of the rental agreement, as well as the promises that both parties must uphold for the stated term of the lease. Having an attorney that is knowledgeable in the state’s landlord tenant practices can make a huge difference in the terms of your rental agreement. Steven Veinger has helped many of his clients, both landlords and tenants, obtain the most fair and favorable terms for their lease agreements – that while being mutually beneficial, outline certain advantages or desired specific to each client and their needs.

Lease agreements must also outline the specifics of the rental and the property being rented, they include:

  • The parties named to the lease.
  • The property and a full description of it, and its condition.
  • Any changes or upgrades made or that will be made to the property.
  • Terms of the lease – monthly cost, security deposit, any fees, any other costs aside from the monthly rent, the time period for the lease, how these payments are to be made and more.
  • Any damage to the property, and who is responsible for what types of future damage or needed upkeep to the property.
  • Occupants whoa are allowed to live on the property.
  • Any other information relevant to the lease including the use of the property, what is allowed and not allowed, pets, amenities and more.

Evictions

One of the biggest issues in the world of landlord tenant law is the eviction process. Often times, renters are unfairly evicted – without just cause, or reasonable notice – in violation of fair housing laws. And on the other hand, often, tenants violate the terms of the lease, and landlords may experience difficulty in evicting them. With the help of an experienced landlord tenant attorney Florida landlords and tenants will have the legal counsel they need to file certain court orders and understand what exactly their rights are in such a situation.

In Florida a lease can be terminated if, 1) either party does not comply with the agreed upon terms of the lease or 2) the lease ends. However, when a lease is to be terminated or a tenant is to be evicted, the landlord must give the tenant advanced notice. In the following lease periods:

  • A week to week lease – Requires 7 days’ notice.
  • A monthly lease – Requires 15 days’ notice.
  • A quarterly lease (3-month lease) – Requires 30 days’ notice.
  • A yearly lease – Requires 60 days’ notice.

Obligations of Either Party
As a tenant you are responsible for the following:

  • Proper use of the property and any appliances, as outlined in the lease agreement.
  • Be responsible for the behavior of any guests.
  • Do not destroy or deface any property.
  • Keep up with building and housing codes.
  • Observe all garbage removal rules and codes.

As a landlord your responsibilities are dependent upon the type of rental unit in question. However, for the most part you must observe the following:

  • Keep hot water running year round and heat the property during the winter.
  • Allow for proper trash disposal and receptacles for trash removal.
  • Cleanliness and safe conditions of the surrounding property.
  • Provide working locks and keys.
  • Ensure property is free of any bed bugs, ants, mice, and other infestations. In the event of such issues, you must contact an exterminator.
  • Maintenance and general upkeep of the property.

Also, a tenant has a reasonable right to their privacy. A landlord cannot enter the property unless of the following:

  • In an emergency situation.
  • With the tenant’s consent.
  • With 12-hour notice and consent for repairs.
  • When the tenant is absent for at least 15 days (if the rent is due every month).
