Ok, I understand.
What do I do about this woman calling me claiming to be his wife? Her name is XXXXX XXXXX the lease anywhere. He never mentioned a wife in the communications while signing the lease. I never received communication from anyone that she would be taking over. Per Florida Statute 83.50 "In addition to any other disclosure required by law the landlord, or a person authorizaed to enter into a rental agreement on the landlord's behalf, shall disclose in writing to the tenant, at or before the commencement of the tenancy, the hname and address of teh ladnlord or a person authorized to receive notices and demands in the landlord's behalf."
I have received no notifcation of this woman other than her calling me telling me "My name is [woman's name] and I'm taking over for [landlord] as he has been sick since February." No word from the landlord, no change in lease, and I have not met this woman so I have no clue if she is who she says she is.
Am I obligated to continue speaking with her? Or can I tell her I have obligation to speak with her as she is not the landlord per the lease?
