Lease Termination Notice Florida. What is a notice of lease termination in Florida? Whether you have a written lease or a verbal agreement to occupy an apartment/condo, business bay or home, it is important to remember that you have to give proper notice when terminating a lease in Florida in order to properly end the agreement and move out. If you do not give proper notice when attempting to end a lease or rental agreement, you’re leaving yourself or business open to unnecessary exposure.
In the State of Florida, the amount of notice required in a given situation is governed by the written lease, or in the case when there is no written lease or the lease does not specifically say, when and how to give proper notice is spelled out for us via Florida Statute 83.03 for commercial tenants and in Florida Statute 83.57 for residential tenancies.
For a tenant, if there is no written lease, or the lease does not specifically state the amount of notice required, the tenant may move out for no reason by giving written notice of his or her intent to move out no less than seven days before the next rent payment is due, if the rent is paid weekly, or 15 days, if the rent is paid on a monthly basis.
For a landlord, if there is no written lease, or the lease does not specifically state the amount of notice required, you must give at least 15 days’ notice in writing before the end of any monthly period; a week-to-week rental period requires seven days’ notice before the end of any weekly period. Any such notice must be in writing and should be delivered personally to the tenant, but it may be posted at the door if tenant is absent from the premises.
Of course, as with any other statute, there are many exceptions and nuances. It is highly recommended to speak with a Broward Eviction Lawyer or Palm Beach Eviction Lawyer who is well versed in landlord and tenant law before attempting to end any lease yourself, whether you are on the landlord or tenant side. If proper written notice is not given, you can find yourself tied up in a wrongful termination or wrongful eviction lawsuit. It is always recommended that you seek legal advice.
