If you are a Florida Tenant and have received a Defective 3 Day Notice, you will be able to defend against a Florida Eviction Action filed against you. As a Florida Tenant, you have the ability file a Motion to Dismiss, Motion to Determine Rent, and/or an Answer if the Florida Eviction Action that was filed, stems from a Defective 3 Day Notice. Florida Residential Landlords must strictly adhere to Florida Statute 83.56 when filing a Florida Eviction Action. However, we ALWAYS recommend placing monies into the Court’s registry if you file a Motion to Dismiss or an Answer to the Florida Eviction Action. It is very common for Florida Landlords to put the incorrect amount owed in a 3 Day Notice (i.e. adding unwarranted late fees, incorrect rental amount, administrative fees, etc.), thereby giving the Florida Tenant a Defective 3 Day Notice.
It is your right as a Florida Tenant to ensure that you are treated fairly and that the terms of your rental contract are strictly followed. While it may seem that a Florida Landlord has complete control over the Landlord/Tenant Relationship, this is not the case. As a Florida Tenant, you have rights and Florida Statutes Chapter 83 protect you and clearly state the rights and obligations for both the Florida Tenant and the Florida Landlord.
