Evictions From ALFs
Evictions and Foreclosures of Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and Nursing Facilities; Litigation Between Owners and Operators of Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and Nursing Facilities
The Health Law Firm has represented owners of Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and Nursing Facilities in the foreclosure and eviction of lessees, operators and managers who had breached their contracts or defaulted on their lease payments. In many cases the operator has had action taken against it by the Agency for Health Care Administration, the regulatory authority in Florida. In order to attempt to save the license of the facility the owner must take immediate and decisive action.
Since legal action can have consequences such as premature calling of notes and loans by their lenders, or may otherwise compromise their collateral and viability as an ongoing business, it is crucial to have attorneys who are familiar with the licensing and regulatory requirements of the state agency. Court action must be carefully tailored to take these issues into account.
The attorneys of The Health Law Firm have worked with owners to evict tenant operators who are in default of their contracts and to preserve the license of the facility so that new operators can be brought in to save the business.
This is a difficult area that requires expertise in state court litigation as well as licensing and regulatory matters for health care facilities. The Health Law Firm has such expertise.
