This is commonly known as a Florida Unlawful Detainer Action and the process is governed under F.S. Chapter 82. Our Eviction Lawyers also represent Landlords, Property Managers, Investors and Homeowners with Ejectment Actions, Lease Preparation, and Letter Correspondence on behalf of our clients.

FLORIDA TENANT ATTORNEYS
954 Eviction Attorneys provide aggressive representation for Florida Tenants that have been served with a Residential Eviction Complaint or a Notice from their Landlord that they are in violation of the terms of their Lease. Our Lawyers understand that being served with a Residential Eviction Complaint can be a very stressful situation for a Tenant and their family. This is why 954 Eviction Attorneys focuses on the Tenants needs and their desired end game. Whether the Tenant is looking to stay in the property or simply not have an eviction on their record, our Eviciton Lawyers will advocate for you.


954 Eviction Attorneys provides Tenant Representation when the Landlord is not maintaining the premises or breaching the material terms of the Lease. If you need to proceed with legal recourse against your Landlord or if you feel that your Landlord has filed an Unlawful Eviction against you or that you have paid the Landlord rent that the Landlord claims you have not paid, 954 Eviction Attorneys is here to defend you and fight for the justice you deserve!

FLORIDA COMMERICAL EVICTIONS
954 Eviction Attorneys represents both Commercial Landlords and Commercial Tenants throughtout the State of Florida in Commercial Evictions and Commercial Landlord-Tenant disputes,. While Florida Commercial Evictions may be similar to Residential Evictions in many aspects, there are significant differences that need to be addressed and require a greater understanding of interpreting both the Commercial Lease and how to navigate through F.S. Chapter 83 Part I. Our West Palm Beach Commercial Eviction Lawyers and our Fort Lauderdale Commercial Eviction Attorneys know the Commercial Eviction process. As such, this saves our clients both time and money.


Our Florida Commercial Evictions Lawyers assist Commercial Landlords and Commercial Tenants in resolving both monetary and non-monetary violations of the Commercial Lease as well as assisting our clients with Commercial Lease drafting and review.





TIMELINE FOR UNCONTESTED RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS

1. Tenant is provided with a three (3) day notice of non-payment, seven (7) day notice of non-compliance, termination of tenancy notice or notice of non-renewal.

Prior to filing an eviction lawsuit in the State of Florida, the Landlord must give the Tenant notice that they are attempting to terminate the lease. This includes notice for failure to pay the rent. If a Tenant has failed to pay rent, the Tenant will have three (3) days either to pay rent or vacate the property.   If a Tenant has a month-to-month lease with the Landlord and the Landlord wants to terminate the lease, the Landlord must give the Tenant a fifteen (15) day notice prior to the commencement of the next rental period. If a Tenant has committed non-monetary violations of the Lease, the Landlord will likely serve the Tenant with a seven (7) day notice to cure if the violation is a curable violation.

2. Eviction Complaint is filed and served on the Tenant.

After the Tenant has received notice from the Landlord and the Tenant fails to respond or comply, the Landlord may file an eviction complaint against the Tenant. An eviction complaint for possession can either be served on the Tenant or posted on the door of the Tenant’s property. If a Landlord is unable to serve the Tenant with the Complaint personally or by substitute service and is forced to serve the Complaint by posting to the property, the Landlord must file a Certificate of Mailing with the Court. This allows the Clerk of Court to mail the Eviction Complaint with the summons to the Tenant directly. This will satisfy the service requirements.

3. Tenant fails to file a Response to the Eviction Complaint.

Upon being served with the Eviction Complaint, the Tenant has five (5) days to respond to the Complaint. If a Tenant fails to file a response to the Eviction Complaint, the Landlord can file a Motion for Default with the Clerk of Court.   If the Clerk grants the Motion for Default, a Default will be entered against the Tenant. Thereafter, the Landlord can file a Motion for Final Default Judgment with the Court. If the Judge assigned to the Eviction grants the Motion for Final Default Judgment for Eviction, a Final Default of Eviction will be entered against the Tenant.

4. Writ of Possession.

Upon a Judge entering a Final Judgment of Eviction against the Tenant in the uncontested eviction, the Judge will direct the Clerk to issue and sign the Writ of Possession. Thereafter, the signed Writ of Possession is sent to the Sherriff’s Office to serve the Writ of Possession.   The Sherriff’s office will then serve the Writ of Possession on the Tenant’s door giving the Tenant twenty-four (24) hours to remove their belongings from the property and vacate the property, before the Sheriff will return back to the property to execute the Writ of Possession.

FLORIDA CONTESTED RESIDENTIAL EVICTIONS TIMELINE

1. Tenant files a Response to the Eviction Complaint.

Upon being served with the Eviction Complaint, the Tenant has five (5) days to respond to the Eviction Complaint. If a Tenant receives an Eviction Complaint for non-payment, the Tenant may place the past owed rent into the Court's Registry and file a Motion to Determine Rent with the Court as well as an Answer to the Eviction Complaint.

2. Court will set the matter for Mediation, Motion to Determine Rent, and Final Hearing.

If the Tenant files a response pursuant to Florida Statutes, the Court will likely set the matter for Mediation.   Mediation is a Court ordered process that allows the Landlord and the Tenant the opportunity to resolve the case with an impartial third-party known as a Mediator. If the parties resolve the case in Mediation, a settlement agreement will be entered into, the Judge will review the settlement agreement, and if the Judge consents to the terms of the settlement agreement, the Judge will sign-off on the settlement agreement, wherein the case will be dismissed pending the terms of the settlement agreement. If the parties are unable to resolve the case in mediation, the case may be immediately heard for a Motion to Determine the Amount of Rent or Final Hearing.

3. Final Hearing of Eviction.

At the Final Hearing of Eviction, both the Landlord and Tenant will be allowed to present evidence to the Court of their side of the story. The Court will hear the evidence and then decide if the Landlord is entitled to the relief that the Landlord is seeking in the complaint. If the Landlord is successful, the Court will order a Final Judgment of Eviction against the Tenant. If the Court finds that the Landlord is unable to prove their case, they will likely find in favor of the Tenant and dismiss the case. Attorneys’ fees and costs may be awarded to the prevailing party.
