Evictions and Unlawful Detainers
Joe Taormina is an Orlando Eviction attorney that regularly helps landlords recover their property from tenant who are not paying rent, or who have breached the lease in other ways.
An Eviction and an Unlawful Detainer are both legal actions to recover possession of real property. Recovering possession is legal speak for getting somebody out of your house.
The difference between an Eviction and Unlawful Detainer is that an Eviction is used when there is a landlord/tenant relationship, which is mostly evident by some sort of rent payment(s) in the past. An Unlawful Detainer is appropriate when the relationship is not one of landlord/tenant but rather when a property owner has someone living in house that shouldn’t be living there. This can happen a couple of ways, but usually the person was invited in and has now overstayed that welcome. (It happens more than you’d think).
