Florida Eviction Legal Services for Landlords
Florida Evictions - Legal Services - Landlords - Flat Fees - Fast Results
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.
Charles Legal PLLC have over 20 years of experience representing plaintiffs in the state of Florida in the eviction process. Our law office will oversee the entire eviction process from start to finish, from handling all legal paperwork and filing with the court, through the Unlawful Detainer procedure. The steps for eviction usually go in this order:
- Serve the tenant with the correct notice of eviction
- File with the court and establish when the eviction process will begin, this depends on the rationale behind eviction. Usually 3-4 days are given for nonpayment of rent or criminal activity, and 30-60 days are given to tenants who are not renewing a lease or are simply being asked to vacate the premises.
- Defaults and hearings, if applicable
- The actual eviction procedure can begin
Negative Impacts on Eviction Cases
When individuals attempt to evict lessees on their own, they can make a number of mistakes. This is why it is important to have an experienced lawyer represent you. Common mistakes lessors make include:
- Accepting money from a tenant, partial or full, after an eviction notice is given
- Entering a property without giving a 24 hour notice
- Not repairing faulty property or equipment, even after an eviction
- Turning off utilities if they are in the property-owner’s name
- Re-serving eviction notices, which will replace the prior given notice with a new date
If a lessor has done any of these things, it will negatively impact your case. Tenants will in turn have a stronger defense against your eviction case, and often the case can be thrown out.
