I have an issue...

I have an issue with property management in apartment which I am renting now. They want me to vacate the unit on unimportant grounds. I want to fight this

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

I live in Palm Coast Florida

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

I had a roommate which didn’t want to leave voluntarily and made a lot of disturbances. She wasn’t on a lease.

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

It was some police involved in several situation. But she finally moved out last week and now everything should be perfect but the management insisting that I need to move out
