Collection Law Firm For Staffing Industry

Recently our firm has been receiving more requests from staffing agencies to help them collect from clients for whom they have placed both temporary and permanent employees.  Recruiters work hard at staffing agencies to  find  capable candidates/ employees for employers who need to fill positions at their companies. Typically staffing agencies are paid a percentage of the candidate’s salary as compensation to the staffing agency. The staffing agency takes on an inherent risk when placing a candidate  with a company. Typically compensation to the agency until a period of time down the road.  Cash flow sometimes down the road makes it difficult for  the company for whom the recruiting firm has placed the candidate to thereafter collect the amount due as compensation for their services.

Debt Collection From Scamming Landlord

Judgment Obtained Against Boca Raton Woman and Real Estate Agent in Rental Scam

Our debt recovery law firm was retained by a Michigan woman, who after being introduced to an alleged high end  Boca Raton  property, that was supposedly  available for rent, sent $26,000.00 as a security deposit  to the owner of the property. The real estate agent failed to disclose a material fact to our client, namely that the restrictive covenants of the HOA did not allow owners to rent the property.  After learning of this fact, a little too late, our client demanded a return of the deposit. Both the real estate agent and the property owner  acknowledged that the money was due to my client , but the money  was no longer available to be returned. No explanation was given  to our client and soon, the owner of the property and the real estate agent  stopped communicating with our client.

Securing a Judgment was Relatively Easy -How to Collect on the Judgment is the Challenge

Obtaining a judgment for our client was relatively easy.  It should be noted that we obtained a judgment against both the husband and wife, the owners of the property as well as the real estate agent.  In Florida if a creditor only has a judgment against one spouse, property held as tenants by the entirety  are exempt from execution.  Because we obtained a judgment against both spouses this exemption will not pose a problem  in our enforcement efforts. The other area that has to be addressed even though we have a judgment  against both spouses, we would not be able to execute  on the homestead property  of the owners because of Florida’s constitutional protection of homestead property .  Fortunately, we were able to find several properties owned by the owners. Since you may only have one homestead, we are now exploring the possibility of foreclosing on the one of the other properties .
