CLEARWATER — A Palm Harbor property owner is suing a family member, alleging an unlawful stay on the property.
Nick Meintanas filed a complaint Jan. 25 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Christos Meintanas alleging that violation of Florida statutes by refusing to comply with the property owner's demands to leave the premises.
According to the complaint, on Aug. 23, 2017, Nick Meintanas revoked his consent for the defendant to be in possession of the dwelling at 2763 Jarvis Circle, Palm Harbor, and informed and demanded that Christos Meintanas vacate his property.
