When and How Can Landlords Evict Tenants in Florida?
This article explores why Landlords should not attempt to evict problem tenants without a licensed Florida attorney. Florida landlords should be very weary of non-attorney eviction companies. These allegedly “rush eviction” companies are highly limited, by law, as to what they can and cannot do on behalf of a landlord. This is because Florida law prohibits non-attorneys from the practice of law, and evictions are actual lawsuits.
Evictions are formal (albeit “miniature”) lawsuits filed in the county court where the rental property is located. Note that just because there is no written lease agreement between the Landlord and Tenant, this does not necessarily mean that there is no “lease” between the parties. Contrary to popular belief, landlord/tenant leases, strictly speaking, may sometimes arise by operation of law.
Some of the reasons why a Landlord may chose to evict a tenant include: (1) the tenant is not paying the rent; (2) the tenant is conducting criminal activity at the property; (3) the tenant has unauthorized guests at the property; (4) the tenant has unauthorized pets at the property; (5) the tenants actions or inaction have damaged the property; (6) the tenant breaches some material covenant or condition of the lease. These grounds for eviction are by no means exhaustive.
