Ejectments vs Evictions under Florida Law

Ejectment vs Eviction Under Florida Law.

In general, an eviction is a lawsuit filed by a landlord against a tenant to regain possession of the property. Evictions are filed under Chapter 83 of the Florida Statutes once proper notice of termination of tenancy has been delivered by the landlord or landlord’s agent to the tenant.
