Suncoast Home Improvements, Inc. v. Robichaud

Florida District Court of Appeal
106 So. 3d 969 (2013)

Facts

Donna Robichaud (defendant) hired Suncoast Home Improvements, Inc. (Suncoast) (plaintiff) to perform residential repair work on her home. Robichaud’s property was located in Charlotte County. The written repair contract specified that the cost of the repairs would be in accordance with the insurance estimates attached to the contract. Suncoast completed the repair work and sent Robichaud an invoice; the invoice requested payment be made to Suncoast in Pinellas County. Robichaud failed to pay, and Suncoast then filed a breach-of-contract action in Pinellas County. Robichaud moved to transfer venue to Charlotte County, arguing that, under the local-action rule, Charlotte County was the proper venue because the real property subject to the repair contract was located in Charlotte County. Robichaud did not submit an affidavit supporting her venue challenge. The trial court granted Robichaud’s venue-transfer motion without explaining its reasoning. Suncoast appealed.
