Under Florida law, a landlord can evict a tenant for any of the following reasons:
– Non-payment of rent
– Violation of lease provisions
– Noise violations
– Fighting or disruptive behavior
There are specific steps that a landlord must go through to evict a tenant. These steps can differ based on the reasons for eviction and the desired results of the litigation process; if the landlord is seeking to recoup money damages it is more complex than if he is simply seeking for the tenant to vacate the premises.
The eviction process can range from simple, if you have a cooperative tenant, to extremely complicated, depending on the way the tenant responds and the resulting legal ramifications.
The eviction process is a type of civil litigation, which is why it is important to hire an attorney to assist you. Boyer Law Firm’s civil litigation attorneys are familiar with the court’s processes, which can prevent you from making mistakes that could prevent or delay the eviction.
