When a Tenant’s rent is due, the Florida Landlord is required to accept their rent. If a Landlord refuses to accept a Tenant’s rent after the Florida Landlord serves the Tenant with a three (3) day notice, the Tenant is in breach of their rental agreement as well as Florida Statutes. If the Florida Landlord proceeds with the Eviction Lawsuit against the Tenant although the Tenant tried to pay rent to the Landlord during the three (3) day notice period, the Tenant will have a very strong defense against the Eviction.
954 Eviction Attorneys always urge Tenants to make sure that all their conversations with their Landlords are in writing whether it is through email, text messages or letter correspondence. If a Tenant claims that they tried to pay their rent during the three (3) day notice period but is unable to prove it in writing, they will have a much weaker case. If you are a Tenant that has attempted to pay their rent to your Florida Landlord and the Landlord has refused to accept it, contact 954 Eviction Attorneys, PLLC today at (954) 323-2529.
