Is it illegal for an attorney to contact me?

I have filed in small claims court against a company. Recently my landlord received a phone call from the company’s legal office, asking that I call them.

Am I right in thinking they are trying to bypass the law by getting me to call them? Any more info you can provied would be great.


Guarantors Responsibility For Breaking Lease (Florida)?

My sister moved in to an apartment with her friend (in Orlando, Florida) and her friends father signed as the guarantor. My sister woke up the other morning to find her “friend” moving out because she decided she didn’t want to continue paying rent anymore, assuming she would be a few thousand in debt for the remaining lease and that’s the end of it.

My question is, with her friends father as the guarantor, does he then become responsible for the debt due to the broken lease once the eviction process goes through and fees are assessed?

(My sisters boyfriends mom works at a law office and wanted a copy of the guarantor paper so she could look it over but the apartment complex is refusing to release it because its private so I’m trying to help my sister figure out what going to happen to her when this whole process begins and what she should expect)

Any information, especially if you work in the field, would be greatly appreciated.

Landlord ignored court order. Changed Locks/Removed all my belongings!?

I was court ordered on Aug 19th, that I had to move by Aug 31rst. At that time the security deposit would be applied to my balance as applicable, and I would contact the landlords attorney to make payments on anything else that was owed if so. Since last week the 24th, the locks on my apartment were changed without any notice. I have been back and forth with the landlords attorney. They are aware that it is illegal for my landlord to change locks since I have court paperwork. I called my landlord and basically was just rude, wouldn’t discuss about the lock, and hung up on me. On Friday, I was told that I would get a call about a new key. I never recvd a call. I called again on the weekend but could only leave messages. Today Aug 30th, I got a hold of the landlord finally and found out that he already removed all of my items from the apartment! I got extemely emotional because a lot of my daugthers personal memorable items were there, and now its all gone. I plan to go to court and file against him. Is there anything I would need? I do have pictures of items, but not everything. I also don’t have receipts because most stuff was purchased on craigslist, or gifts, and any receipts i do have were there at the apartment. Please help! Any advice is appreciated!

Help!! How to Evict or get Someone Out of My House!!!?

Hi, Here’s my story. I live in Northern NY. I own my own home, and have been living with my boyfriend for a 1 1/2 year now. I have been asking him to move out pretty regularly for the last 6 months and I have about reached my wits end. Whenever I ask him to leave he tells me that it’s just as much his house as mine and that if he leaves he will take all my stuff with him, and there is nothing I can do about it but take him to court and by then he will have everything!! (I just recently bought all new furniture and a new plasma tv). He has a very bad temper, and throws fits when I ask him to leave. I called the police once and they told me Id have to evict him. I went to city court to get eviction forms but they said they didnt supply them. Mind you he has been unemployment for 5 months and barely give me any money to help with bill’s. Sit’s around all day doing nothing!!! What a prize I got!!! I would appreciate any help you can give me! I dont want him to take all my stuff!!! Thanks!
The house is mine, I bought it way before I met him, my name is on everything. I have reciepts for all my furniture and belongings, which I will get together tonight and put in my safe deposit box. Thanks, Everyone!!!
