FORMS UPDATE: Revisions to Nonlawyer Disclosure

Florida Supreme Court has approved a Florida Bar rule change that alters the Nonlawyer disclosure; this impacts 8 landlord-tenant forms found in Form Simplicity.

ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida Supreme Court forms related to landlord/tenant matters found on Form Simplicity have been updated. Note only the Nonlawyer Disclosure language was slightly modified and it will not impact the manner in which you complete the form. The Nonlawyer Disclosure simply explains the person (i.e. the licensee) assisting with the completion of the form is not an attorney or a paralegal. There were no substantive updates outside of these.

For more information on the updates, click on the notification link below. The former Nonlawyer Disclosure ND-2 has been replaced by ND-3. All other revisions consist of replacing only page 1 of the form with the new ND-3 version.
