Legal Question in Civil Litigation in Florida

Repay of loan

I loaned $85,000 hard money to someone with the promise of being repaid $125,000 within one year. However, it's been 16 months now and I want to pursue legal action. Is this possible? If so, what are the limitations of how much I can seek? (ie. triple damages, interest, legal fees, etc.) Thank you very much!

Re: Repay of loan

Your "loan" chaerges interest at nearly 50% and is likely to be usurious. You cannot loan monet at 50% interest. Under some circumstances, you can be forced to forfiet the interest AND the principle (the original $85,000). It may even be criminal usuary.
