Are you Evicting a Tenant without a Written Lease? Believe it or not, many Florida Landlords and Tenants today still memorialize their Landlord-Tenant rental relationship with a handshake.
Many Landlords in Florida have Tenants that pay them on a monthly basis but they never entered into an actual written lease with the Tenant. Under this scenario, if the Tenant continues to pay rent on time every month to the Landlord, the Landlord will not be able to evict them for reasons strictly related to the payment of rent. In light of the Tenant paying rent timely every month, the Landlord still has the right to the terminate the lease.
Florida Statutes allows a Landlord to terminate a lease if they provide the Tenant a fifteen (15) day notice stating that the month-to-month tenancy will terminate at the end of the month. This notice must be given fifteen (15) days prior to the end of the next rental period. For example, Therefore, a Landlord cannot give a fifteen (15) day notice to the Tenant on 18th of the month that the tenancy is terminated on 31st of the month. This is a great tool for Landlords that no longer want the Tenant residing in their property.
