Customer Question
Good Morning; Lawyer's Assistant:...

Good Morning;

Lawyer's Assistant: Hi. What do you want help with?

Sorry, hit return forgetting that would send my message. I am looking for a real estate attorney that is licensed to practice in Terrant County Texas and preferably is familiar with a retirement home dba as "The Staton" at***** Fort Worth, TX

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

Terrant County Texas, city of Fort Worth.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

No. At this point my questions may be able to be answered after an attorney has reviewed the retirement home's contract, which is short. It has to do when the resident moves out of "The Staton". When you move into your apartment you sign a contract but the resident does not actually purchase the apartment. The resident pays to The Staton a "Resident Deposit", of which 70% is returned when the resident moves out. However "The Staton" allows themselves 10 to 90 days to return that 70%. I am trying to determine wether that is actually legal.

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

Not really. Timing is everything and have to duck out to go work in the next 5 or ten minutes so a phone call now would not work. However he/she may email me at***@******.*** and we can set up a time to chat tomorrow or Monday at his/her convenience.

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.
