Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. Is it possible to create only one original contract copy by executing in counterpart?
A: Interesting question. If the contract says it can be executed in counterparts it can be signed on separate documents. Probably would be valid if executed like that even without specifically so stating. Technically, each of the signed originals in full when placed together would be the original. If the separate pages are initialed then they should be included. Frequently, one of the parties adds all the signature pages and creates a separate original draft containing all of the signatures and then circulates that as the final executed draft. If there is any doubt, include all of the pages from each signed original.
Q. If suing a LLC business, and the principal address and mailing address are different, which address should be served?
A: Florida Statutes 48.062, Service on a limited liability company. states: (1) Process against a limited liability company, domestic or foreign, may be served on the registered agent designated by the limited liability company under chapter 605. A person attempting to serve process pursuant to this subsection may serve the process on any employee of the registered agent during the first attempt at service even if the registered agent is a natural person and is temporarily absent from his or her office. (2) If service cannot be made on a registered agent of the limited liability company because of failure to comply with chapter 605 or because the limited liability company does not have a registered agent, or if its registered agent cannot with reasonable diligence be served, process against the limited liability company, domestic or foreign, may be served: (a) On a member of a member-managed limited liability company; (b) On a manager of a manager-managed limited liability company; or (c) If a member or manager is not available during regular business hours to accept service on behalf of the limited liability company, he, she, or it may designate an employee of the limited liability company to accept such service. After one attempt to serve a member, manager, or designated employee has been made, process may be served on the person in charge of the limited liability company during regular business hours. (3) If, after reasonable diligence, service of process cannot be completed under subsection (1) or subsection (2), service of process may be effected by service upon the Secretary of State as agent of the limited liability company as provided for in s. 48.181. (4) If the address for the registered agent, member, or manager is a residence, a private mailbox, a virtual office, or an executive office or mini suite, service on the domestic or foreign limited liability company may be made by serving the registered agent, member, or manager in accordance with s. 48.031. (5) This section does not apply to service of process on insurance companies. History.—s. 3, ch. 2013-180; s. 13, ch. 2015-148; s. 5, ch. 2019-67. So service is not dependent on the address, but service on the registered agent, employee, agent or member or manager under the statute above. If that cannot be accomplished the statute provides for service through the Secretary of State.
Q. Had a 2nd showing.Can you req a refund if the app is still not fully processed; bugs and odor?
A: This is not enough information to accurately respond. But in general, it would depend on a number of factors, such as whether this is an "as is" deal, whether there is a mortgage contingency and whether that expired, etc. Also, are there conditions in the home which the seller was required to disclose but did not do so or were those conditions open and obvious when you agreed to the purchase? You should confer with your broker and competent counsel for additional information applicable to your individualized situation. Either there is a contract or not. A showing has nothing to do with the contract. If there is no contract, unless the is some other agreement, there would appear to be no basis for a refund on your mortgage application. Unless you are talking about a refund on a deposit to the seller, which is a different issue. If you made a deposit on the home, there could be a basis for a refund but the facts stated are insufficient to evaluate. As you can see, this will depend on the situation you are dealing with whatever that might be.
