The residential eviction process in Florida requires careful and full compliance with Florida law. Attempting to remove a tenant through extralegal means, for example changing the locks or removing the tenant’s belongings, is considered a “self-help” eviction, and is illegal. The statutes governing the removal of a tenant in Florida are very specific. If the eviction process is not done correctly, including the pre-eviction notices, the landlord or property manager could be easily liable for wrongful eviction and possibly liable for thousands of dollars. I have spent years working with Landlord/Tenant issues, which give me a special insight as to how to best and legally remove a tenant from the property. Not only do I understand how to properly evict a tenant, I also understand the importance of a fast removal process.
Charles Legal PLLC is experienced in landlord tenant law aka evictions. We realize that the cost to a landlord increases every day a non-paying tenant(s) remains in a property in violation of their lease or rental agreement. Statistically the longer a non-paying tenant remains in a property, the more likely there will be damage to the property increasing the cost to ready the property for re-letting. Not to mention the hassle of evicting a tenant who is not paying as agreed. While we cannot circumvent the system, our understanding of the procedure involved allows us to prosecute the eviction on the landlords behalf so as to avoid any unnecessary risk of liability and or delays in the legal process. Our initial goal is to put the landlord back into possession of the rental property as soon as possible. Equally as important is preserving the landlords rights to pursue damages.
