We are always asked by our clients how to evict tenants from a rental property in Florida.

Answer: If you are a Florida landlord and your tenant is not paying rent and you would like to evict them from the property, it is important that you adhere to Florida Statutes, Chapter 83 when doing so. This important Florida statute governs both commercial and residential evictions. It is always recommended that you don’t go through this process alone. 954 Eviction Attorneys, PLLC are here to help.

First, you must give the tenant a three day notice to pay rent or deliver/return possession of the premises.  This notice states that the tenant has three days to either pay rent or vacate the property.  If the tenant still doesn’t pay the rent or vacate the property after three days, you may then file an eviction lawsuit against the tenant.  Once the lawsuit is filed, the lawsuit complaint must be served on the tenant.  Once served, the tenant has five days to respond.   If the tenant doesn’t Answer the eviction complaint and place money in the court’s registry or make a demand for a rent determination hearing, the next step is moving for a clerk’s default against the tenant.   Thereafter, the Court will most likely grant your Motion for Final Default Judgment and send the Writ of Possession to the Sheriff to Execute the Writ.  The Sheriff posts the Writ on the door of the property giving the tenant twenty-four hours to vacate the property.
