The Laws regarding a Florida Eviction for Nonpayment of rent are very straight forward. Always remember that just because your lease may state you have a grace period before a late charge will be applied, that doesn’t mean that your rent is not due on the due date. If a Tenant fails to pay rent when it is due, the Landlord can immediately serve the Tenant with a three (3) day notice for non payment of rent. If after the three days the tenant still has not paid rent, the Landlord can serve the Tenant with an Eviction Complaint. The Tenant then has five (5) days to respond to the Eviction Complaint. If the Tenant still does not respond to the Eviction Complaint after five (5) days, the Landlord can move forward with a Default Final Judgment of Eviction against the Tenant.
