Florida law carefully governs the manner in which landlords may evict their tenants. Even if rent has not been paid, the landlord must follow this procedure exactly or risk being unable to remove the tenant from the premises lawfully. In addition, tenants have rights, and you may be able to assert certain defenses if your landlord is trying to evict you. For these reasons, it’s highly advisable for both landlords and tenants to retain legal counsel if eviction is at issue. Call Quattrochi and Torres at 407.452.4918 to schedule your consultation.

Contact an Attorney Early in the Eviction Process
Landlords who do not maintain the premises, account for security deposits, respond to repair requests, or meet other contractual obligations will have a harder time evicting their tenants. The tenants may be able to use these violations as grounds for contesting an eviction. By consulting with an attorney before starting eviction proceedings, landlords can ensure that they are doing everything possible to protect their right to evict tenants who do not meet contractual obligations lawfully. An attorney can also help create a strong written leasehold agreement that clearly defines each party’s contractual obligations. This, too, can make it easier to evict tenants lawfully.
