Frequently Asked Questions

What are the legal grounds for evicting a tenant in Florida?

In Florida, landlords can evict tenants for several reasons, including non-payment of rent, violation of lease terms, damage to the property, conducting illegal activities on the premises, and staying after the lease has expired. Each ground for eviction has its own legal process and requirements. For example, for non-payment of rent, the landlord must provide a 3-day notice to pay rent or vacate the property.

What is the first step to start the eviction process against a tenant in Florida?

The first step in the eviction process is to provide the tenant with a written notice. The type of notice depends on the reason for eviction. For non-payment of rent, a 3-day notice is required, excluding weekends and legal holidays. For lease violations, a 7-day notice to cure or vacate is necessary, giving the tenant an opportunity to correct the issue. If the tenant fails to comply with the notice, the landlord can proceed with filing an eviction lawsuit.

Can a landlord evict a tenant without going to court in Florida?

No, in Florida, a landlord cannot legally evict a tenant without a court order. Self-help evictions, such as changing locks, removing tenant’s belongings, or cutting off utilities, are illegal. The landlord must follow the formal eviction process, which involves serving the proper notice, filing an eviction lawsuit, and obtaining a court order before the tenant can be legally removed.

How long does the typical eviction process take in Florida?

The duration of the eviction process in Florida can vary depending on the county, the court's caseload, and whether the tenant contests the eviction. Generally, an uncontested eviction for non-payment of rent might take about 4 to 6 weeks from serving the notice to obtaining the final judgment. However, if the tenant contests the eviction or if there are legal complications, the process can take longer.

What are the consequences of illegally evicting a tenant in Florida?

Illegally evicting a tenant, such as through "self-help" methods, can have serious legal consequences for a landlord in Florida. This includes potential civil liability where the tenant could sue for damages, such as costs associated with temporary housing, lost belongings, and more. Florida law provides that a landlord could be liable for 3x the amount of monthly rent. Additionally, illegal eviction can lead to punitive damages, and in some cases, criminal charges. It's crucial for landlords to follow the legal eviction process to avoid these risks.

How does the eviction process work if a tenant contests it in Florida?

If a tenant contests an eviction in Florida, the process becomes more complex and lengthy. After the tenant files a response to the eviction lawsuit, a court hearing will be scheduled. Both parties will have the opportunity to present their case, including evidence and witness testimony. If the court finds in favor of the landlord, an eviction order will be issued. However, if the tenant wins, they can remain on the property. Both landlords and tenants should consider obtaining legal advice when encountering a contested eviction.
