"During the week with a radio show type question I will absolutely take note, I'll do the research, and I'll get back to you on the show. But just understand that my work week is dedicated obviously to my clients. So let me see the next issue for discussion today. I've got a lot to talk about is Andrew's call from last week. He had a question about lemon law. And specifically he's been through the process and he's about to request what he's owed. And he wanted to know what does the lemon law remedy provide? Well. A great resource for anybody with this, same question or any questions at all about the lemon law is our own attorney general's website. The Florida attorney general is Ashley moody, and you can get to her website by going to my Florida legal dot com and on her website, she has an entire page dedicated to the lemon law. And it was really surprising to me, just how detailed the remedies will be. If you are successful eleven law claim bear in mind lemon law applies to new vehicles. There are very significant restrictions as to when you can actually bring the claim has to be brought, I think it's within the first twelve thousand miles of us within the first twelve months of us, and you have to have brought the vehicle in to a reputable or certified service provider for the same issue, not various issues. But it's got to be the same issue at least three times. Is. That's what I'm remembering from past use of the lemon law. So if I'm wrong about that somebody can call me and tell me, but that's a sensually. How you get your foot in the door. In once you've got your foot in the door. There is a lemon law process that you can follow. It's pretty easy. You don't necessarily need a lawyer for a lemon law claim. Of course, it's probably recommended that you use one but you don't have to have one. So the question was, what do I get well, the formula it says for both refunding replacement awards. The consumer will be responsible for a reasonable offset for use, which makes sense. If you've used the vehicle. And for however long there's going to be an offset for that. And there's an actual formula that set forth right here in the website to determine the reasonable offset for us. So you can read it for yourself. But it says bass selling our sale prices reflected on the purchase invoice, excluding taxes. Government fees dealer fees, or in the case of a lease. The agreed upon value is reflected in the lease agreement. Had it says multiplied by mileage attributable to the consumer what you do. You subtract mileage delivery, and other non-consumer mileage and whatever's left is the mileage attributable to the consumer. It's up to the date of the settlement or an arbitration hearing. And then you divide that number by one hundred twenty thousand and it says imprint seizure, divided by sixty thousand if it's an RV recreational vehicle. That number will give you your reasonable offset for us. And that's a number. That is then applied to.
