A problem tenant can be very stressful on a landlord. Florida law allows for a landlord to evict a tenant, typically for nonpayment of rent or for a violation of the lease. There are specific guidelines that are set forth that must be followed by the landlord in order to properly evict a tenant. Florida law is very specific in awarding attorney fees to the winning party in a landlord-tenant dispute, so it is essential that a landlord follows the Florida eviction procedures to the letter.
The eviction process typically includes the following (please note that there are variances as to what is required, specifically in a mobile home eviction):
(1) 3-Day Notice to Pay Rent;
(2) Complaint for Possession;
(3) 5-Day Summons;
(4) Motion for Clerk's Default;
(5) Motion for Default Final Judgment;
(6) Default Final Judgment; and
(7) Writ of Possession.
Our office offers a flat rate eviction package that includes all costs up to the Writ of Possession (which is not always required), and includes court costs. Our belief, is that by offering a flat rate, a landlord knows all the fees associated with the eviction up front.
