THE PROPERTY INVESTOR LAWSUITS

Lawsuit for Key Biscayne Property Manager Fraud and Theft from International Investor:

In V.N.V. v. I.M., Bernhard Law Firm is prosecuting an international property investor’s claims for fraud and civil theft against its Key Biscayne property manager. As taken from the lawsuit’s pleadings:

“This is [Property Owner]’s action for civil theft, fraud, and unjust enrichment, stemming from Defendant’s theft of [Property Owner]’s wire transfers, rent, and security deposit. Defendant misrepresented herself to be [Property Owner]’s liaison, real property manager, and escrow agent in Miami. After gaining [Property Owner]’s trust, Defendant pilfered tenant rent transfers addressed to [Property Owner] while stealing [Property Owner]’s tax payments dedicated to Miami-Dade County. [Property Owner] seeks to unveil this fraud and recoup its losses at the hands of Defendant.”

Lawsuit for Luxury South Beach HOA’s Failure to Maintain and Repair:

In J.B. v. V.S.B.C.A., Inc., Bernhard Law Firm is prosecuting an out-of-state property investor’s claims against her luxury South Beach condominium association for failure to maintain and repair the common elements. As taken from the lawsuit’s pleadings:

“This is property owner [Plaintiff’s] action for declaratory judgment, breach of contract and statutory duty, negligence, and injunctive relief against the condominium association responsible for maintenance of the Common Elements surrounding [Plaintiff’s] condominium unit. After purchasing Unit 107 in the [Condominium], [Plaintiff] discovered that a water leak originating in the Common Elements had begun to encroach into her unit. Between 2012 and 2014, the Association negligently attempted repair of the leak, working on the drainage pipes and valves in the Common Elements, and damaging [Plaintiff’s] property in the process. However, in August 2014 the Association refused to complete the repair and thereafter began demanding that [Plaintiff] pay for the Association’s incomplete work. The Association’s two years of negligent repair work has caused significant damage to [Plaintiff’s] unit, including mold proliferation, drywall destruction, and other damage. [Plaintiff] seeks a declaration that the Association has a duty to finish proper repair, and monetary damages for the underlying negligent work thus far.”

Lawsuit for Lienholder Misrepresentation on Brickell Condominium:

In A.P. v. B.N.Y.M., Bernhard Law Firm is prosecuting an international property investor’s claims against three banking institutions for misrepresenting ownership of pre-existing liens encumbering her newly purchased luxury Brickell condominium. As taken from the lawsuit’s pleadings:

“This is property investor [Plaintiff]’s action for declaratory judgment and negligent misrepresentation against these [Defendant] financial institutions, arising out their misrepresentative mortgage documentation on [Plaintiff]’s real property. After purchasing real property in November 2014, [Plaintiff] learned that both [Bank 1] and [Bank 2] allege conflicting claims on a mortgage encumbering the property. None of these defendants has provided substantiating documentation for their claims or responded to [Plaintiff]’s requests for the same. As a result, these banks have prohibited [Plaintiff] from clearing title to her property, resulting in loss on her investment. [Plaintiff] seeks a declaration of the true mortgage possessor and damages for the underlying negligent misrepresentation.”
