HELP! I just received a Florida Writ of Possession do I have to leave my home immediately? Many Tenants will receive a Florida Writ of Possession from the Sheriffs office during the final stages of a Florida Eviction. The Florida Writ of Possession states that you have twenty-four (24) hours to vacate the premises. While it is true that the Sheriff will return, realistically it is usually between forty-eight to seventy-two hours if the Tenant is located in Broward County due to the backlog. Also you will not be removed on the weekend. The process in Palm Beach County is usually a bit quicker. This process is further outlined in Florida Statutes, 83.62.
What does this mean for you as the Florida Tenant? If you have valid grounds to stay the Florida Writ of Possession, you can file an Emergency Motion to Stay the Florida Writ of Possession with the Court. It is then up to the Court to determine whether they will grant your Motion and provide you with a hearing as to why the Court should stay (Stop) the Florida Writ of Possession. If the Tenant is the prevailing party at the hearing, the Florida Writ of Possession may be stayed (delayed). It is always recommended that you consult with an experienced Florida Eviction attorney.
