Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend that has a First American Home Warranty on his air and heating unit outside . He lives in Vero Beach ,Florida. There have been two different companies that told him that the same problem was wrong with the unit, but, the problem is the unit cannot be fixed as the unit is to old, now they are saying that they are going to give him only about $711. they cost he was given to replace it was $3850 and the other was around $4000 but no actual estimate. They also are telling him that he has to pay for it out of pocket and they will replace it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet he is an older gentleman

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

I am sorry to hear about this situation. So in short, the company is not fulfilling their warranty obligation. Correct?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
